Keep a lasagna in your freezer at all times and I can guarantee your future self will be eternally grateful. It can be one you made, or a package from the freezer aisle or your grocery store's prepared food section. There's going to be a night when it really comes in handy, and it means a saucy, cheesy pasta dinner for the whole table comes together in a breeze.

And while it reheats in the oven, all you have to do is whip up a simple veggie side. These are our 10 favorite standbys for pairing with frozen lasagna.

The Best Frozen Lasagnas for Every Possible Scenario

There's no shortage of situations when frozen lasagna isn't the answer for dinner. We ate our way through the long list of options available at the grocery store to bring this selection.

1. Tomato Salad with Red Onion, Dill, and Feta

Prep this summer salad as soon as you put the lasagna in the oven, so all the flavors have plenty of time to meld.

2. Simple Arugula Salad

Let this be proof that you don't need a crisper full of produce to pull off an amazing salad. This simple number is dressed with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and drizzle of olive oil, and partners with any dinner you're serving up.

3. How To Make Garlic Bread

It doesn't get much better than garlic bread with lasagna. The oven is already on, so just pop this in there in the final 15 minutes of cooking.

4. Every Pizza Place Salad

This crunchy salad is a pizza night favorite, and partners just as nicely with cheesy lasagna. The best part, in my opinion, is the tangy lemon caper dressing. You might even want to whisk together a double batch and use the rest with lunch the next day.

5. Easy Lemon-Ginger Spinach

A mess of tender greens is always a good idea with lasagna. Not only is it packed with light, refreshing flavors, but it's also ready in minutes.

7. Summer Vegetable Gratin

If you're trying to stretch your lasagna to feed a crowd, this simple gratin gets the job done. It's light and makes the most of the abundance of summer vegetables.

8. Garlicky Roasted Broccoli

Since the oven is already fired up for the lasagna, a side of garlicky broccoli feels like a natural fit to get something green on the plate.

9. Lemony Green Beans With Almond Breadcrumbs

After eating this once, there is a chance you may never be able to eat green beans without this crunchy almond breadcrumb topping again.

10. Jersey Salad

Drizzled with red wine vinaigrette, this is just the sort of simple salad I love partnering with baked pastas.
