How to Make Lasagna — The Frugal Chef

In this video I want to show you how to make lasagna. Lasagna is a layered meal made with pasta and fillings. It can be made with meat and cheese like this one or with vegetables, chicken or seafood. It can have a red or white sauce and sometimes the pasta is substituted for zucchini or eggplant.

Lasagna takes a little time to make but is absolutely worth it. You can freeze this after assembling and cook later if you want to get ahead of yourself.
