This is one of my favorite casseroles to make. I live alone, so I will make this casserole and have my meal, then I like to portion out the leftovers and put in nice little individual sized containers and throw those in my freezer. Then when I come home from work another night, whether it's next week or one night next month, I can simply pull one of these out and put it in the microwave which makes an easy meal and then I don't have to cook that night. Also nice to take to work for lunches. Good stuff!!
