The cheese sauce makes more than you need for this recipe. You can cut the cheese sauce recipe down, or save the additional sauce by freezing it. This recipe is part of another post where I show how to use the cheese sauce in multiple ways.
This can be made ahead, and wrapped in foil, just be sure to bake just before serving, rather than in advance.
