125 Best Casseroles and One-Pot Meals Review

Casseroles and one-pot meals are truly the ideal solution for busy people who want wonderful food with a minimum of fuss and maximum taste.  Convenience, easy preparation, economy and portability make this method of cooking perfect for today's busy lifestyles.

These recipes are incredibly tantalizing, and many are make-ahead.  The wonderful variety includes everything from big casseroles to delight a number of friends or to freeze in small amounts for future family meals, to long-simmering stews that will warm and comfort you on cold winter nights.  And the skillet meals feature everything from small and quick dinners and stir-fries that are easy for novice cooks to lovely elegant dishes that are entertaining-worthy.

Try some of these delicious recipes:
      Baked Tortellini with Three Cheese
      Chicken and Shrimp Pad Thai
      Honey-Curried Chicken and Apricots
      Turkey and Corn Enchiladas
      Garden Vegetable and Chicken Paella
      Squash and Bean Stew with Chipotle Cream
      Roasted Summer Vegetable Lasagna

These outstanding recipes are sure to help you discover the huge appeal of one-dish cooking.

The book has chapters on the various types of casseroles and one-pot meals.  There are chapters on pasta, chicken and turkey, beef and veal, pork, lamb, fish and seafood, vegetarian and brunch and lighter fare.  With 125 recipes to choose from, I couldn't wait to get started trying them all.  I have tried the pizza pot pie and the meatball stroganoff.  Both of these are delicious and fairly easy to make.
