Frezer Friday: Pasta Alfredo Bake

Welcome to Freezer Friday. The goal here is to make our lives easier. Due to the fact I have 4 little ones and homeschool, I need all the help I can find. Simply post a recipe that can be made, frozen and then later reheated(thawed, etc) and consumed. Make sure that you include freezing and reheating instructions in your post. Then come here and add you post (not your blog) into Mr. Linky.
Now for some disclaimers:
If it isn’t a recipe, I will delete it.
If it can’t be made ahead, I will delete it.
If you don’t have a family friendly site, I will delete it.
Now onto the food fun!

Due to my women’s retreat I am reposting this as a Freezer Friday recipe. (It was around before Freezer Friday was)

Pasta Alfredo Bake

Here is my easy, peasy made up recipe to use leftover meat. I have done this with pork roast and chicken so far.

Anywhere from 3/4lb to 1lb of pasta
2 cups of cubed meat
1 large bag of frozen veggies (I use broccoli)
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1 small jar of alfredo sauce or one batch of my Cheap and Easy White Sauce
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded Fontina Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil your pasta and drain. Rinse frozen veggies in warm water and drain. Then mix pasta, meat, veggies, chili powder, and alfredo sauce. Dump into a 9 by 13 pan and top with shredded cheeses. Then bake for 30 minutes until everything is warm. You can assemble this ahead of time and freeze it. Then just thaw and bake. I put it in partially frozen and cooked it for an hour and it turned out great.
