Lasagna requires cooking the noodles, preparing the sauce, and layering the dish, which makes it a time consuming recipe that isn't suited for busy nights. Making up the lasagna ahead of time and refrigerating it for later allows you to tackle preparation when you aren't pressed for time. Refrigerated lasagna tends to dry out during cooking, but this is avoided by having extra sauce on hand. When refrigerating the dish, wrap it well with foil or plastic to further prevent drying.
