I had electrical problems on thurs. & lost everything in my frig. & freezer. I made lasagna & rotini at 1 time or another. We ate 1/2 of them & I froze the other 1/2. Can I save them, since they have already been cooked? Also, I made some homemade f.f., blanched them & froze them. r they okay 2 save?

I am unsure how long your power was out. If the foods in your freezer have thawed out I would not hesitate to throw them out. Without having additional information it is difficult to answer the question. I always say when in doubt, throw it out. A great resource that will be a good guideline for you is the following FDA link on what to do after a power outage for those foods.http://www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm076881.htm#s2
