Hello

I've been reading the batch cooking threads (and emptying my freezer in anticipation!) but need some specific advice / recommendations...

1. DH and I have been eating progressively less meat and more vegetarian dishes lately. I'd like to have veggie food ready to go from the freezer but I'm concerned that dishes like stews / curries / etc will go mushy and sad-looking after being frozen. Is that a problem and can anyone recommend some good, cheap, reliably freeze-able veggie recipes?

2. Pasta bakes are a good option that all the family will eat. Most of the recipes say 'freezeable' but at what stage should I actually freeze them- most of them are topped with cheese and baked. Does it get frozen before or after the cheese has been put on and baked? and do I need to put extra sauce on the ones that go in the freezer to prevent them going dry?

Cheers all ;-)

2. Don't think it matters when the cheese is added, you can freeze cheese. I made a double batch of this bake ink{https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HNLxgH3Sc-4\m.youtube.com/watch?v=HNLxgH3Sc-]]4} yesterday and froze one of them to bung in the oven at some point.
