12. Butternut Squash And Sun-dried Tomato White Lasagna
Pop this cheesy goodness in the freezer and all you have to do is heat before serving.
19. Honey Butter Roasted Acorn With Burrata And Pomegranate
Prepare the day before and serve at room temperature or heated up.
20. Pumpkin Pie With Cinnamon-roll Crust
Make the crust way ahead of time (like, weeks!), cover tightly in plastic wrap and stash it in the freezer until you’re ready to bake. You don’t even have to thaw before baking, and, bonus, it’ll keep its shape even better in the oven.
