      Exceptionally tasty casserole and a big plus being it can be frozen. I omit the fennel because we do not like it and doubt if it deters from the final result. Can see this being put in the freezer often for drop in company. Thanks because it will be very useful seeing we have out of town company coming and they are pasta lovers.
