Mama’s Lasagna Bake: A little slice of heaven, right out of the freezer!



  • 8 cups prepared Marinara sauce (I make my own but using store bought is fine)
  • 4 pkgs (12 oz each) cooked rotini or any other medium pasta
  • 1 pkg sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 pkg mild or hot Italian sausage
  • (I have used bulk ground Italian sausage before but I prefer the sausage in casings)
  • 2 lg buckets ricotta cheese (I wait till these go on sale, usually around Christmas time then freeze them till I want to use them.)
  • 5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups parmesan cheese


Boil the sausage on the stove till the internal temperature is 150. Meanwhile cook the pasta and drain. Let the sausage rest till cool enough to handle. Slice into ¼ inch medallions. In a large bowl mix all ingredients except 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and the parmesan cheese.

Portion out the pasta mix into disposable (which by the way re-use very nicely!) loaf pans, top with some of both cheeses, cover with saran wrap then foil and freeze. To re-heat simply place into a 350 oven till bubbly and warm or dump out onto a plate and warm in the microwave. These make a great meal for two when combined with a few bread sticks and a side salad.

Hi, I'm Shane, aka Hungry Dad. I'm as busy as everyone these days and my two boys just add to that. I hate when we have to eat out and love to come home and have a home cooked meal with the family after a rough day. But who has the time, right? Well, with a lot of trial and error we found a bunch of great, easy to make recipes that can be made in bulk and freeze well. This means we can have home cookin' in about the same time as making a box of mac and cheese. Convenient and yummy!
