Can I Freeze Stuffed Pepper Casserole?

Yes, you can definitely freeze this meal.  In fact, sometimes I cook two pans and put one batch in the freezer to use on another busy night.  Once cool, be sure to place the casserole in an airtight container before freezing.  I recommend eating it within three months of making it.  To thaw, place the stuffed pepper casserole in the refrigerator overnight and use within a couple of days.
