    1. Hi Kirsten,
      So glad you enjoy the recipe!
      These will freeze fine, just remember, if you use a glass or Pyrex type dish for freezing, make sure it is up to room temperature before you pop in the oven to avoid any of the glass cracking in the oven!

    1. Hi Barbara, thank you. Cathy will be please you like her recipe! You are indeed correct, about the meat. Everything will cook nicely in the oven for an hour in the sauce so there is no worry.
      Hope you will get to try the recipe soon. It is a family favorite!
