To make ahead: Freeze the prepared bags (Step 1) for up to 3 months. Defrost in the refrigerator for 1 day before cooking (Step 2).
Tip: Want a faster thaw? Place the frozen chicken mixture (in its sealed bag) in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Change the water every 30 minutes. You can also thaw the pasta this way, but be sure to use separate bowls to avoid cross contamination.
