Tuna Pasta Casserole - Main Meal

Tuna Pasta Casserole doneG
Made it to freeze for future meals. I got carried away with the addition of cheese, so there was a bit more than would safely fit into both trays, so that will be a snack later today. :laughing:

Nice! Having meals ready in your freezer is so handy! I’m terrible at that.

Sounds yummy! I love make-ahead meals and this one looks like a winner!

I wish I had the planning and implementation skills to do a lot of make-ahead meals. Tipping my hat to you; that’s awesome!

Thanks! When making meals, I usually make double serves so I have the next day/ night’s meal done too.
When I can, I either make extra to freeze for future unmotivated days, or cook 2 days in a row so I have extras. Sometimes, the only way I can manage the black hole and feel useful is to make meals ahead of time. It can take a bit of planning and there’s the trade off of having work done ahead of time for the extra efforts put in.

Entree - that cracks me up! I’m Australian and an entree is a small dish that comes after the appetizer and before the main meal. Wish there were more choices available in the drop down menu for these differences.
