Made this for Freezer Tag 2008. I really enjoyed the taste of this casserole! I used penne pasta and fresh veggies (only because I can't get frozen California blend or canned mushrooms in China...). I added some chopped onions to the sauce by using slightly more butter to cook them before adding the flour. It had great flavor! To freeze, I assembled through step 12 as directed. I put it in a foil lined pan and froze it until solid. Then I removed the pan and put the foil wrapped dish in a ziploc bag. I thawed in the refrigerator overnight and then baked as directed for 20-25 minutes.

For having such a low fat content, this is amazingly good! I used 1% milk for the sauce and added a little garlic powder. The frozen veggies make this super easy..... no cutting/chopping! Thanx for a great (lowfat) meatless pasta recipe. I will use this recipe often.

When I made this I wondered if the kids would eat it and weather or not my husband would complain "where's the meat". Not a complaint. And not a spoonful of leftovers. Thanks for a quick and tasty meal with vegs. Bella
