For the Best Spinach Manicotti, Skip the Manicotti (and Maybe the Spinach, Too)

Looks great. Two questions.

First, if you wanted to include mushrooms in the filling, how would you go about it? Just sauté first to get rid of extra liquid, then mix with the ricotta, egg, etc.?

Second, any thoughts on how to freeze once assembled? Before cooking, cook part way, fully cooked? Would love to take a tray of this to friends who just had twins, and would like to make an extra round for the freezer.

Ask The Food Lab Anything, Thanksgiving Edition

Seconding May_be's question -- would love to know about prepping brussells in advance. If I wanted to prep them most of the way in advance, could I blanch, shock in ice water, and drain, then through in for a very quick saute to warm and brown them a bit just before serving? What would be the best way to store them overnight after the first step? Thanks!

Soondubu Jjigae (Korean Soft Tofu Stew)

Any thoughts on subsituting for the kochukaru? I've got the gochuchang, tried three different Asian markets without finding kochukaru. I know where there's a Korean (as opposed to more broadly Asian) market that has kochukaru, but it's pretty far away and I'd like to make this before I see myself getting there.
