    Has anyone baked stuffed pasta shells without thawing first? I am trying to make some things to take to Grandma-in-law, but need things she can pull out of the freezer and make right away...any more effort than that and she won't bother.

    Yes, I have baked many dishes right from the freezer to the oven, and pasta works well in these dishes. When doing this, I generally will put the dish into the oven, and THEN turn the oven on. This keeps your cookware from cracking due to the shock in temp extremes.

    Have you considered the micro-wave as something of an option?

    I use cheap foil pans (5x9 inch) I buy at a restaurant supply store for my casseroles and those go from freezer to oven. Like stated I usually don't preheat the oven, since it is such a long cooking time it really doesn't matter if the oven is hot to begin with. I turn on the oven, head downstairs and find what I want and pop them right into the oven. Usually takes 1 1/2 hours from frozen solid.

    I wouldn't do OAMC cooking if I couldn't cook from frozen. I never plan ahead. I try but it never works out.
