    1. If you are doing the recipe as posted for 8 people, I would use a 9×13 pan. When freezing, we typically recommend an 8×8 pan for every 4 servings. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks, Lisa! I mentioned this recipe to my momma (who I planned to make it for when she visited) and she must have liked the idea because less than 48 hours later there was an Amazon box on my front porch with some veggie parmesan inside. Which is good because my basil is going gang-busters in my backyard so I can still make a fresh pesto for this. BTW, I am still loving the swaps beyond measure. They have made all the difference for me! Especially when my vegan mom who hates mushrooms visits. Thanks for all the hard work!

  2. Would it work to prep ahead of time and put into the fridge until baking? If so, what considerations/changes if any should be done? Thanks for any ideas.

    1. Adrienne, you could definitely do that. Just prep it up until it says to bake. It can sit in the fridge for a couple days without a problem until you are ready to bake it. Enjoy!
