Yesterday on Recipe This, we shared with you how to cook an air fryer lasagna using the American Italian style of recipe.

But today, we wanted to follow up on our lasagna theme by showing you just how easy it is to reheat your favourite frozen lasagna in the air fryer.

You can also follow this method for any of your favourite air fryer TV dinners.

We all have our favourite TV dinner, don’t we? Mine as a kid was always the spinach and ricotta filled cannelloni.

I loved the taste of the spinach and it would be my go-to dinner when I was dining at an Italian restaurant.

But back when I did cookery at school, I remember a valuable lesson that the teacher taught us.

It was how small and expensive TV dinners are and how you are much better off making your own.

So, I rarely buy them, unless one of our readers asks me to, which is what is happening today with our air fryer frozen lasagna.

One of our readers asked us for help in cooking air fryer frozen lasagnas as well as frozen TV dinners in general.

We had a hunt around our local supermarket and didn’t find any that we liked. So, what we did was buy a small and a large supermarket fresh lasagna and placed them in the freezer.

The small frozen lasagna would be used in our Philips Air Fryer XL as it would be the perfect size for a regular air fryer basket and then the bigger one would be perfect for our Power Air Fryer Oven.

If you wanted to, you could make our homemade air fryer lasagna or your own, freeze it and then use this air fryer frozen lasagna guide for when you are ready to reheat your frozen lasagna.

Best Air Fryer Frozen Food?

I recommend the Philips Air Fryer XL for cooking air fryer frozen food. It is what I use in nearly all my air fryer frozen food recipes.

It is also the best quality of air fryer and don’t forget Philips was the first brand to bring out an air fryer, 10 years ago now and their air fryer lasts a lot longer than the newer copycat brands.

Though if you plan to cook our air fryer frozen pizza, it will be too small. In this case the Power Air Fryer Oven would be a better size for you.

Can You Cook Frozen Lasagna In An Air Fryer?

Absolutely! Lasagna is perfect for cooking from frozen in the air fryer. Simply remove it from its outer packaging and add it to either your air fryer basket or the top shelf of an air fryer oven.

In the oven you can often forget about it, but with the air fryer it beeps, and you can quickly adjust the temperature and carry on cooking it.

The air fryer is also fantastic for melting the cheese on your lasagna.

What Ingredients & Gadgets Go Into Air Fryer Frozen Lasagna?

Air Fryer Frozen Lasagna step by step

There is not much to cooking air fryer frozen Lasagna.

Grab your favourite frozen lasagna directly from the freezer and place them in the air fryer out of their packaging.

The air fryers we used for recipe testing our frozen Bolognese style lasagna was the Philips Air Fryer XL and the Power Air Fryer Oven.

It is the perfect size as the small one could go in the Philips Air Fryer and the much bigger one would fit perfectly in the air fryer oven.

If you want to cook more air fryer frozen lasagna, you could fit one in the top and one in the middle of the air fryer oven and then swap the shelves over half way through so that both frozen lasagnas had the chance to fully reheat.

  1. Remove the frozen lasagna from the packaging and place in your air fryer basket.
  2. Cook for 15 minutes at a defrost temperature to allow it to thaw out.
  3. Move the temperature up from defrost to a low and cook for a further 30 minutes.
  4. Serve with your favourite sides!

Though this is based on the small frozen lasagna in the air fryer basket. See the recipe card below for the full instructions and cooking times, especially for the air fryer oven.

Air Fryer Frozen Lasagna Ingredients:

  • 400 g Frozen Lasagna


  • Remove your frozen lasagna from its box and main packaging and place in its tray inside of your air fryer basket.
  • Cook for 10 minutes at 100c/210f to allow it to almost defrost.
  • Cook for a further 30 minutes at 160c/320f.
  • Check to see if it is piping hot in the centre and if it is fully reheated serve.


Time adjustment for the air fryer oven. Firstly, cook on the top shelf of the air fryer oven. We used a 1 kilo (2.5 bigger) frozen lasagna in the air fryer oven and as you can imagine takes much longer. Cook for 20 minutes at 120c/250f, followed by another 25 minutes at 170c/340f. Then check to make sure it is piping hot in the centre.
You can use any homemade or shop bought lasagne that has been placed in the freezer until frozen. You could also use a vegetarian or keto version.
We also found that using a very low defrost temperature stops the lasagna from being overcooked on top and not cooked in the middle.

    Ahhhhhh!!!!! Help!

    I bought a B&D Air Fry oven 3 days ago. I wanted to cook a 1kg frozen lasagne but alll the recipes give a temperature to cook at. With my air fry oven that’s not air frying – that’s baking. To air fry you set theTEMP KNOB to “AIRFRY” which automatically cooks at 450F. Air Fry (allegedly) conversion charts give a temp for every item! So air frying isn’t recommended for a frozen lasagne, since the temp will be set to high? Do other ovens not have it so you have to choose either the “AIRFRY” setting or the temp setting? I can “bake” it if I have to but I’d prefer to air fry most items. The recipes dont help at all.

    • Hi Peter,

      An air fryer shouldn’t be that high a temperature and it shouldn’t be the only temperature. If that is the case i would recommend returning it and getting an air fryer oven with better choice of temperatures. For example if should be doing 250-400f. Otherwise you will struggle to follow hardly any air fryer recipes as most recipes require a 360f temperature.

      kind regards

    Do I remove the plastic part on Top of it that you’re supposed to leave on if you bake it in the oven? EDIT: After doing the recipe like you said it turned out great have done it several times since thanks.

    • Hi Angela,

      Yes we took it of just because in an air fryer most of the heat comes from the top and with the plastic cover on it will end up reflecting most of the heat away from the lasagne 🙂
