    I tried this recipe this week, and the casserole was great fresh out of the oven. Reheats in the microwave have been disappointing, it doesn't have the same lovely creamy cheesy meltiness. I wouldn't try to freeze it.

    Wow! This was so delicious. Definitely now a favourite. Microwaved leftovers and still delicious.
