    Yes, the microwave is safe. Make sure you put the left overs in a microwaveable container. I usually put a paper towel over it to make sure the food doesn't splatter. The time varies on how powerful your microwave is and the amount you are wanting to reheat. I usually start at 4 minutes and go from there.

    Yeah, they'd be safe, assuming you refridgerate them. You can even eat them cold if you like. As for how long it takes to reheat, just a few minutes in a microwave. You're better off reheating lasagne in the oven though...it won't get all mushy like it will in a microwave. Probably takes about a half hour at around 375 in the oven.

    Safe, very safe to reheat. Use your table of contents on your microwave and just check the reheat button first. Try a minute to three minutes. Depending on how much you have left, would depend on how long you reheat it. Just make sure to refrigerate the left overs.

    Of course it woud be safe to reheat. You are going to keep it in the fridge overnight, right? You can reheat in oven or microwave. Use 350 for a temp setting if you use the regular oven and keep an eye on it.

    Yes, it's safe to reheat. Depends on portion as to how long it takes in the microwave and what the watts are on your microwave. So, hard to say on that one. Usually, based on mine, it just takes a couple of minutes to reheat.

    Certainly it will be good and only take a few minutes to reheat in the microwave too.

    You can reheat it within the next few nights! If the meat is cooked it will hold in the fridge for a few days, it isn't going to go "bad" in that time.

    You can also freeze it for up to a couple of months.

    Are you actually cooking either of those dishes tonight or do you want to make them ahead? If you do cook them, make sure that you cool it thoroughly before refrigerating to prevent any bacterial growth. For reheating mike it at 50% power and check for temp after about 5 minutes.

    As long as you put the leftovers in the fridge right away and don't let them sit out overnight, they should be fine for tomorrow.

    If you have not eaten all of the left overs after three days, pitch 'em.

    Yes...it will be fine to nuke the next day...in terms of time...sorry..until it's hot enough to your desire.

    Depends on a lot of factors.

    By the way...nuked leftover shepards pie is horrible...I would go with lasagne if you want leftovers.
