This freezer-friendly recipe makes one casserole that will serve four tonight, plus a second meal to freeze and pull out when you're in a pinch. Perfect for the family on the go! While this take a while to bake, you'll get two meals for the time of one! Ingredients: Coarse salt and ground pepper 6 tablespoons butter 1 pound white mushrooms 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 3 cups milk 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth 3/4 cup dry white wine 3 cups grated Parmesan cheese 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 1 pound linguine, broken in half 1 rotisserie chicken, skin removed, meat shredded (about 4 cups) 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed and drained Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 400. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil (for pasta). In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over high heat. Add mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until tender and browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, and set aside. 2. Make sauce: In same saucepan, melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add flour; cook, whisking, about 1 minute. Whisking constantly, gradually add milk, broth, and wine. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and add 2 cups Parmesan and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Cook pasta 2 minutes less than package instructions for al dente; drain and return to pot. Add sauce, chicken, peas, and mushrooms. Toss well to combine. Divide between two shallow 2-quart baking dishes; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Freeze (see below) or bake until browned, about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. COOK'S NOTE To freeze: After placing pasta mixture in baking dishes and sprinkling with Parmesan (step 3), cool to room temperature. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, and freeze up to 3 months. To bake from frozen: Bake, covered with foil, at 400 degrees, until center is warm, about 2 hours. Uncover, and bake until top is browned, about 20 minutes more. Serve. To bake from thawed: Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Bake, covered with foil, at 400 degrees, until center is warm, about 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake until top is browned, about 20 minutes.

This is the dish that I make whenever I visit my grammy. I can make us dinner for one night and then know that I am leaving her with at least two dinners in the fridge so she can take a few nights off cooking for herself :)
