  1. I love casseroles – they are a full meal in one pan, and I don’t have to stir it or anything. Mess free, hassle free cooking is my favorite type of cooking.

  2. I’ve been vegetarian for more than 20 years and unfortunately I rarely make casseroles. All of the options you shared within this post looks so delicious and kid-friendly too. I will have to make a few.

  3. All of these casseroles look amazing! The vegetable pot pie and the butternut squash gratin look like must-trys for me.
