Looks great right?  If you love freezer meals, this is a perfect option as well, simply follow the directions and instead of baking the dish, cover with plastic wrap and freeze.  The day before you want to eat this casserole, take the dish out of the freezer and let the dish thaw in the refrigerator and prepare as directed.
