  • Lasagna, baked ziti, shepherd's pie, meatloaf. Most casseroles can be frozen. I like to bake a ham or turkey, and freeze it in meal-sized portions for later.

  • continued:
    Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 13x9” baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
    Melt ¼ cup butter over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add onion, celery, green pepper(if using) and mushrooms; saute for 5-6 minutes or just until vegetables are tender.
    In a large bowl, combine onion mixture, broth, soups, tomatoes, sour cream, and seasoning. Stir in chicken and cheese. Add pasta, tossing gently to combine. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle evenly over casserole. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve immediately.
    Makes 10-12 servings. I usually divide this in half and freeze part for later.
    This freezes well.
