    This is a great make ahead dish as it can be frozen several days ahead, thawed and cooked when needed with out any fuss. My children love to cook this for themselves using the leftovers in the fridge. I keep one in the freezer at all times, great for suprise guests, or hungry neighhorhood boys.
