This casserole is best if prepared the day before and refrigerated over night. Remove from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before baking. If it can't be prepared the day before, it needs to sit at room temperature at least one hour prior to baking. Great with poultry, pork or beef. Enjoy!
