How to Store and Reheat?

As with any leftovers, you should place them in an airtight container before refrigerating or freezing them. You can refrigerate them for up to four days, or freeze them for up to three months.

To reheat, you can either do it in the microwave or on the stovetop. If frozen, let them thaw before reheating.

Serving Suggestions:

This creamy and luscious meal can be a little heavy on the palate, so a fresh and crispy salad is a wonderful addition that can help cleanse it.

One with a non-creamy dressing like Tomato, Cucumber, and Red onion salad is the perfect choice. Of course, freshly baked bread is also a must, and for dessert something sweet and tart, like lemon meringue pie!
