Calling all busy parents and adults; we have insider information on the secret to weeknight meal success. Psst, it is the power of the one-dish casserole! When we think of casseroles, we think of the 90s and our grandma's set of casserole dishes (which are our favorite family meals!) Usually containing a well-rounded plate of protein, vegetables, and carbs. They are the epitome of the perfect weeknight meal for families and anyone looking for a "throw it all in one pan" and walk away option.

These casseroles are about to steal a slot in your family's weekly meal rotation. If not for any other reason but the fact that they give you back time in your day! All dishes can be prepped in under 30 minutes leaving you time to accomplish other things that have been piling up. We've got options that range from Tex-Mex inspired, to hot Cheetos topped, to new twists on casserole classics (hello, Tuna-Zoodle Casserole!) We've got something for everyone. Check out our 8 favorite casserole recipes below!
