Freezer Meal: Cheese-y Chicken and Egg Noodles

I have been hunting down easy recipes that can be easily frozen.  As a party of one, I half, and third recipes down a lot, but it's always weird with cans of soups etc.  I'm sure I could plan better, but...the freezer portion of this solution has solved having to find another meal that calls for similar ingredients to make my shopping less wasteful.  I stumbled upon this recipe at freezermealsforus, and it was a really tasty, and easy surprise....that also freezes well.  I pulled another cooking trick out of my book, which involves doing any cooking on Sunday evening.  I put the dish completely together, minus the last step where it bakes together.  When I got home the next day, I tossed it in the oven and it was ready to go quickly after  long day at work.  Casseroles usually taste even better the next day....at least that is what my Mom said when I was growing up....probably to force me to eat left overs.  Whatever the truth is....it worked.  This recipe is a keeper in my book. 
Creamy Chicken Egg Noodles Ingredients
3 c. uncooked egg noodles, 3 chicken breast (baked and shredded), 1 clove of garlic, 1 can cream of celery, 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can mushroom (I left these out), salt and pepper, cheddar cheese (I probably tossed on about a cup).

Also a party of one here and thanks for the recipe. I will divide this up into a couple of small casserole dishes to freeze and heat as I need them. I wish I had a bigger freezer since I just jumped over to the site you mentioned in your post!
