How to Store and Reheat Leftovers? This dinner almost never makes it past the first night at my house. But if you do end up with leftovers, you can easily save them for later! Just store your casserole in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. When you want to reheat it, put it in the oven at 350°F for 15 minutes or until it’s nice and hot.
