Here is another freezer friendly meal for you. Beef Stroganoff. This recipe is super simple and comes together quickly. Usually this dish is made with a nice cut of meat but this recipe uses ground beef which is more budget friendly and still tastes great. I love the creamy texture of the meat mixture along with the noodles.
Like the pizza pasta it can be served immediately for dinner, frozen or frozen in individual portions.

Looks tasty! I love updating old photos, but I get overwhelmed sometimes because there are SO many I want to do!
Thanks Andi! I have some really bad old ones! Like with the flash. Not many people look at some of my older posts but if I see it pinned I think oh boy! I took that? Needs to be updated asap!
do u cook the noodles before you freeze?
Yes, if you look again at the ingredient list it says to cook the noodles until al dente.
