    To make ahead: Prepare as above, except, after assembling, cover with plastic wrap and then foil. Freeze. When you're ready to bake it, defrost for a short while but it doesn't have to be totally defrosted. Remove plastic wrap and recover with foil. Bake in a 375° oven for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for about 20 minutes more or till heated through.
