When preparing lasagna for the freezer there's no need to precook the noodles.

this recipe was delicious... actually i didn't freeze the two dishes. I made one 9x13 size pan of lasagna. Also, I layered the lasagna in the morning, then refrigerated until time to pop it in the oven that evening and the pasta was tender. no need to pre cook it. I did add a layer of seasoned/browned ground round to satisfy my family.
