Can this be reheated to eat the next day to save wasting leftovers?

Response from Quorn

Hi James, of course...we wouldn't want to you to waste any of this delicious pie :) When you use Quorn products in homemade recipes like cottage pie, they are perfectly safe to re-heat if they’ve been kept nice and cool in the fridge and are eaten within 24 hours. If you can resist them for that long that is!
