I've been accumulating the little trays from Lean Cuisine meals and the like, then cooking big batches of food and filling, sealing, and freezing the little trays. Very economical way to get a variety of quick lunches for work!
I've noticed a lot of the ready made meals have pasta -- does anyone have any advice on duplicating this at home?
Do you cook the pasta thoroughly or only part way? Do you mix the sauce in with the pasta or is it better to keep them on separate sides of the container? Do things like large pieces of mushrooms do well, or do they get gummy when you reheat them?
Appreciate any advice!
