Heating and freezing meals

Meals that I prepare for my Slow Meal subscribers can easily be saved for up to 48 hrs in the refrigerator or even frozen if necessary. Here’s a glance at a list of suggestions on how to heat or freeze meals.
Lasagna and other pasta and rice dishes
Reheat in oven for 15 minutes at 325F, covered with aluminum foil (or in a water bath on the stove top with lid on for about 20 minutes). To freeze, cover tightly with plastic wrap and/or lid (to avoid freeze burn) and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw and reheat in oven.
Soups
On stove top or microwave (in microwave safe container). Freeze in freezer-safe container for up to 1 month. Thaw and reheat on stove top or microwave, and remember to stir.
Focaccias and Tortas
Reheat in oven for 15 minutes at 325F. To freeze, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw and reheat in oven.
Meat/fish/chicken entrees
Normally slightly undercooked and can be reheated (without drying out) in oven for 15 minutes at 325F, covered by aluminum foil. Stews can be reheated on stove top or microwave too. Freeze in freezer-safe container for up to 1 month. Thaw and reheat in oven for 15 minutes at 325F, covered by aluminum foil.
Vegetable sides
Reheat in oven for 15 minutes at 325F, covered with aluminum foil. Some vegetables can be reheated in microwave. Freeze in freezer-safe container for up to 1 month. Thaw and reheat on stove top or microwave.
Non-freezable items
Polenta, some potato dishes (Note: potato gnocchi and roast potatoes can be frozen), some custards, salads. Crisp vegetables will change texture when frozen and thawed.
