 Does anyone else here freeze meals for when you just don't feel like cooking? I like to bake one and freeze one for later. Chicken can also be used in this recipe.

    Turkey Noodle Casserole

    2 pounds ground turkey or 4 cups leftover cooked turkey

    2 cups chopped celery

    1/4 cup chopped green pepper

    1/4 cup chopped onion

    2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

    1 cup frozen peas or cut green beans

    1 (4.5 ounce) jar sliced mushrooms, drained

    1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimientos, drained

    1/4 cup soy sauce

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning

    1 cup sour cream

    8 ounces wide egg noodles, cooked and drained

    In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the turkey. (If leftover cooked turkey, no need to brown turkey) Add celery, green pepper and onion; cook until tender. Stir in soup, water chestnuts, mushrooms, pimientos, soy sauce, salt and lemon pepper. Reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes.

    Remove from the heat; add sour cream and noodles. Spoon half into a freezer container; cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Place remaining mixture in a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Add 1 ½ cups grated cheese, return to oven and cook another 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    To use frozen casserole: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish and bake at directed.

 I don't normally freeze meals but I should start.  I usually just throw something in the slow cooker when I don't feel like cooking that day.  LOL  This sounds good - - I'd have to use a different noodle due to the egg allergy but still sounds good.  : )  TFS

 You could use any pasta in it.
