Freezer Meals Recipes

I was sick all weekend, so I was glad to have some meals in the freezer. With many recipes, it's easy to make extra to freeze for another day. And, believe me, it is often a big help. If you are a soccer mom, or just a busy person, it helps to have some freezer meals recipes in your repetoire.

You can freeze your left over pasta meat sauce or casseroles with little or no change in flavor or food quality. Pasta casseroles freeze really well. Try this Chicken Noodle Casserole. It's easy and tasty.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 ounces egg noodles
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 cup crumbled buttery round crackers (or bread crumbs)
1/2 cup butter

Poach chicken in a large pot of simmering water. Cook , about 12 minutes, or until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from pot and set aside. Bring chicken cooking water to a boil and cook egg noodles in it. Drain. Cut chicken into small pieces, and mix with noodles.

In a separate bowl, mix together mushroom soup, chicken soup, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Gently stir together cream soup mixture with the chicken mixture. Place in a 2 quart baking dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan, and remove from heat. Stir in crumbled crackers. Top casserole with the buttery cracker crumbs. (at this point you may freeze the casserole)

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30 minutes, until heated through and browned on top.
