Can I use American cheese in the lasagna?:

American cheese is not a good choice for lasagna because then have lower melting point and can not crisped up like natural cheese at high temperature. But if you don’t have a choice, you can use it.

Can I use vegetables in-stead of meat?

Sure, if you are vegetarian you can use tofu or vegetable sauce instead of meat sauce.

Is there any alternative to thyme and fennel?

If you don’t like thyme and fennel you can use basil and coriander powder.

How to store the lasagna?

Use a air tight box and wrap lasagna in foil tin after it cools down. Put them in the fridge. You can eat it for about a week.

If you had to made your own lasagna sheets or pasta it would be a big hassle and very time consuming process. Also you would need to buy special tools to make a normal pasta. We should thank San Giorgio to make our life this much easy.
