Can I freeze this sauce?

I made a large batch of Bolognese Sauce yesterday and I am wondering if it will freeze well since there is heavy cream in it. I want to give some to my friend who is currently in the hospital when she gets home. What say you all?

Just like to add, if you want to freeze for longer times; freeze in tupperware, then once frozen transfer into foodsealer bag, It keeps lots longer.

I freeze my sauce all the time in freezer quart zip lock bags with never any freezer burn. There's a trick to it.
Turn the top of the bag over itself to form a collar.This keeps the bag open, and protects the zip lock part from getting the sauce on it. Hold the bag in in the palm of your hand, and using a ladle fill the bag 3/4 full. Turn the collar back up and carefully expel the air before sealing the bag. Freeze them flat on a cookie sheet and then they stack nicely in the freezer when making a large batch. For gifts, the added bonus, is no worries about getting your container back.
Maybe everyone does this but just thought I'd pass it on.

Kayelle, nice touch - folding the zip part back like a collar.

Using a bowl or similar to hold the bag, fold the top over the bowl and you have two hands free to fill and manage the bag.

Ooh, another good tip.

I use reusable plastic containers. I hate throwing away bags. I have the bags for the rare occasion. Certainly bags are handy when you are giving something away or taking it to a potluck.

Using a bag you can expel air to minimize freezer burn. With plastic containers, there is usually air at the top. Depending what you're freezing, this may be a problem.

Also, bags take up a lot less space in the freezer.
