Make Ahead Mom Meal {italian delight}

Here's the truth: I haven't necessarily done the best at making frozen meals like I'd planned to have  for my maternity leave.  While I have stocked up on some great sales with chicken and pork chops, I knew it sure would be nice to have some casseroles in the deep freeze. So last weekend I decided to buck up and just make a few items, even though cooking was the last thing I wanted to do.

Lucky for me, I ended up telling my mom my plans and she told me she would make the meals while she was in town! At 6 months pregnant, I probably would have told her, "That's so sweet but I can do it Mom." Now though... I was ready and willing to take her up on the offer!

This recipe is easy, makes a lot, freezes well and tastes great!


My mom does use 2 lbs of ground beef and I've added pepperoni before to help bulk up the meat side of things. Everything in the recipe is pre-cooked too, so if you're in a time crunch, you can always microwave this meal to melt the cheese. {which is what we did for our meal. as you can see from the picture, my cheese could have used a few more seconds!}  Serve with garlic bread and salad!
