I know it is possible to make lasagna a day or so ahead of time but I would like to make only the sauce ahead of time, let it cool and then refrigerate. Then bake the lasagna the next day. Any thought on this?

Yes, you can make the tomato (or meat) sauce in advance and keep it a few days in the fridge.

You can also make the bechamel in advance and keep it in the fridge.

    It also freezes well. There is always at least one quart container of basic tomato sauce in my freezer.
