  • I would assemble & freeze now and cook it when you need it.

  • I vote with the ones saying to assemble ahead and just bake it that way. It gives the sauce and noodles time to absorb the flavors of the seasoning. Would also be a good time to use an uncooked noodle recipe, so they don't get too soggy (Emeril has a good one if you need it)

  • Yes but if you make it more than a day or two ahead you should really freeze it.
