Freezing eggplant parmesan

I'm planning on making and freezing an eggplant Parmesan for a friend who just had a baby and needs frozen foods. Does it freeze well? Should I totally cook it then freeze it or just put it together after frying the eggplant then into the freezer without putting it in the oven? Thanks!

No problem. Cook it first , it's better that way. And freeze it in portions so it's easier to heat up

It does freeze well. I used to make it for personal chef clients. Some of them wanted to bake it, so I left it raw. Others wanted to just zap it in the microwave, so I baked that off before freezing. You may want to increase the tomato part just a little because the eggplant will absorb it.

I agree that freezing unbaked works well.

Looks good chops. Saving it to make when it cools down a bit.
