Dinner is served. When in doubt, add more cheese.

3. Spinach Pasta Casserole with Pesto

Just skip the optional chicken to make this a veg-friendly weeknight dinner. You can prep everything (spinach, pasta, and pesto sauce) beforehand and pop it in the oven when you get home. Get the recipe at The Kitchn.


6. Gluten-Free Green Bean Casserole

It doesn't take long to remake the semi-homemade version from scratch, and it tastes better (honest). A quick cornstarch-and-milk sauce with mushrooms subs in for canned soup; rice flour makes the fried onion topping (best part, obviously) gluten-free. Get the recipe at Serious Eats.

8. Parsnip Gratin with Gruyère & Thyme

OK, gratins (vegetables baked in cheese, basically) are really a whole glorious category unto themselves. This one is cheesy and saucy and cozy enough to earn a spot in the casserole club. Get the recipe at Feasting at Home.


11. Zucchini, Bell Pepper & Tomato Tian

"Tian" is fancy for "vegetable casserole." This one's great if you've got fresh summer tomatoes, but the canned kind would be delicious too. Don't skimp on the breadcrumbs and cheese, please. Get the recipe at Lisa is Cooking.

13. Greek-Style Vegetable Casserole

This is a healthy, cheap, stupidly easy-to-make dinner that should definitely go in your permanent rotation. Most vegetables will be very happy here, so swap in whatever you've got. Get the recipe at Bon Appétit.


14. (Vegan) Creamy Corn Casserole

Don't stress even a little bit if you have to switch frozen corn for fresh; it'll still be yummy. If you're not worried about keeping vegan, feel free to use regular old cow-based milk, yogurt, and cheese. Get the recipe at Homemade Levity.

15. Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts & Fontina Cheese

Don't worry about cooking and peeling chestnuts unless you have extreme amounts of free time; the jarred kind will be just as good once you cover them in cheese. This makes a very nice Thanksgiving side, by the way, if you're already planning the big T-Day feast. Get the recipe at Bon Appétit.

16. Tomato, Broccoli, Chickpea & Mozzarella Casserole

This is sort of like a cheater's version of lasagna made with bow ties, or any kind of pasta shape you like that's built sturdily enough to support three kinds of cheese. Yes, that's right, three kinds of cheese. Get the recipe at The Kitchn.
