Cheesey Veggie Lasagna

Mixture freezes very well, so I will often After working in a restaurant where I watched the cooks mix the lasagna in one container instead of layering like my mother did, I realized that making it could much easier than it traditionally was. In addition, I found that veggie lasagna is a great way to get children to eat there vegetables. Mixture freezes very well, so I will oftenmake a double batch and freeze one without the cheddar on top. Upon defrosting I will add the cheddar before baking, keeping the cheese tasting fresh.
