Casseroles are the perfect winter comfort foods, delivering warm, rich flavors in a single humble dish. From baked pastas to enchiladas, they make it easy to feed a crowd — assemble the ingredients in advance, then pop the dish into the oven before guests arrive.
The top-rated casseroles below need little embellishment; try a green salad and a loaf of crusty bread to pass around the table, and your meal is complete.
|Baked Rigatoni with Ricotta and Sausage
This make ahead dish is perfect for a weeknight meal. Flavorful Italian sausage, roasted tomato sauce and bubbly cheese combine in a soul-satisfying recipe.
|Strata with Chard, Sausage and Caramelized Onions
Layers of bread, eggs and cheese make for a delicious brunch dish. This recipe yields more caramelized onions than you need for the strata, so save them to top on a pizza later.
|The All-New Green Bean Casserole
The traditional version of this casserole, made with cans of cream of mushroom soup and French-fried onions, is a celebration of American convenience foods and a standard offering on countless holiday menus. This updated recipe, made with fresh ingredients, is guaranteed to push that old formula aside.
|Chicken Enchiladas with Tomatillo Sauce
These traditional green-sauced enchiladas from Mexico City are worth the extra steps. They get a kick from serrano peppers; if you don’t care for spicy flavors, reduce the amount of peppers in the recipe to three or four.
|Lamb and Wild Mushroom Shepherd’s Pie
This dish is comfort food at its best: a tender lamb and mushroom pie with crust of mashed potatoes. Our customers are filing it among their “favorites!”
