This is a great potluck supper idea. While at college, my niece would visit me and we'd spend the day cooking to stockpile her dorm freezer for the month with 3-5 different recipes. This was her favorite! Instead of using a carrerole dish, we would evenly divide the ingredients among sealable, boilable bags (omitting the stuffing), label and freeze. On busy study nights, she would reheat them in the microwave.
