From the Test Kitchen
Prepare casserole as above just before leaving home, omitting the tomato and parsley garnish. Cover tightly; wrap in several layers of newspaper or a heavy towel. Then place the casserole in an insulated container. Do not hold for longer than 2 hours. If using tomato and parsley garnish, pack them separately and sprinkle on casserole before serving.
