I have several large pans that I freeze enchiladas and lasagnas in. I freeze the dish in the pan that I will bake it in.

For enchiladas I will prepare them and wrap 2-4 servings in foil. When I'm ready to cook, I will unwrap the enchiladas, put into a nice square pyrex, and then add on the sauce/cheese.

I freeze it in the pan I will bake it in, but then I remove it, wrap it in foil, date with masking tape and place in a labeled bag. When I want to use it, I remove from the bag (and save the bag for the next time I need it), unwrap the item, place it in the pan and cook it (or thaw first, if preferred).
Other people have other methods though I'm sure.

Neat! how do you get it out of the pan once it is frozen? Doesn't it stick in there?

Most of the time, I'm using metal pans so just a little warm water over the bottom will allow the item to pop right out. When I'm using glass/pyrex, I wrap the dish in foil first with lots of extra for wrapping over the top then freeze and finish wrapping post freezing. When you do it this way, though, you have to thaw before you can unwrap it or you end up with little bits of tin foil.
