How to store leftover lasagna:
Store leftover lasagna in an airtight container for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
If you want to store your lasagna for even longer, you can freeze it. Freeze it in an airtight container wrapped in aluminum foil and/or plastic wrap.
Frozen lasagna should only be stored for 2-3 months in the freezer. Freezing lasagna that has been cooked ahead of time tends to have soggier noodles, so refrigeration is the preferred method to preserving leftover lasagna.
How To Make Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Lasagna:
In a large bowl, combine cooked chicken, a jar of marinara sauce and a cup of buffalo wing wing sauce. Pour into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Cover sauce completely with an even layer of lasagna noodles. You will have to break some of the lasagna noodles to get them to fit.
Spread half of the ricotta cheese on top of the uncooked lasagna noodles.
Top with half the shredded mozzarella, shredded cheddar cheese, and diced green pepper.
Repeat all layers and then top with bleu cheese crumbles. If you don’t like bleu cheese, you could easily substitute it with crumbled feta cheese.
Pour 1/4 cup water of the top of the lasagna then cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or high for 2-3 hours.
When cooking is complete, unplug the slow cooker and let it sit for 10-20 minutes to cool down a little and make it easier to serve.
