Good basic casserole. Prepared and baked right away, but good to have freezer directions for another day. I used No Yolks noodles and the dish seemed a little heavy on pasta, not very saucy, and it seemed hard to discern the stroganoff flavors. Still very tasty, my kids thought it was like noodle lasagna. Thanks for sharing the recipe! And for the great freezing directions!
