Notes

How to store: After the skillet and lasagna cool completely, transfer any leftover lasagna to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Do not store your lasagna in a cast-iron skillet.

How to reheat: The best way to reheat it is in a covered oven-safe dish for 10-20 minutes in a preheated 375F oven. You can also reheat in the microwave.
