When freezing casseroles, the vegetables should be slightly undercooked. Follow the recipe to step 4, add carrots but cook for only 30 mins before freezing.

If the sauce is too thin at the end of the cooking time, boil, stirring, for a few minutes until it reduces and thickens.

I found this dish very easy to make and feed the whole family with a few extra vegetables on the side. Lovely and warming in the cold weather had enough left over to give to an elderly lady accross the road.
