Keeping it Safe

If preparing a casserole ahead of time, be sure to cover the baking dish tightly and refrigerate until ready to bake. Add about 10 minutes to the chilled casserole's baking time to ensure that it is heated through before serving.

    This was an epic fail in my house. Cinnamon and nutmeg does not belong in this recipe. I may try it again without it.

    This dish is easy but labor intensive, we loved it! I doubled the parm, made a double batch and it freezes wonderfully! The 2nd one I cooled completely, did not bake, then froze. I made it just like it asked, but did add some crushed red pepper to the red sauce and lots of salt & pepper & nutmeg to the white sauce. Just delicious!
