    I just found this recipe, (I know, I know, it's been up for over a year) Anyway, I am looking forward to trying it but was wondering if it freezes well? Can I make them ahead of time and freeze them for a rainy day (so to speak)? If so, would you bake it first and then freeze? Thanks!
    • We have not frozen it, but we don't know why it wouldn't work. May be a little soggy from sauce, but not much. Let us know if it works. Always nice to have meals prepared that you can tuck away and pull out in short notice. :)
