5 Healthy Recipes That Will Make You Rethink Casseroles

When most people think “casserole,” they think of those soggy potluck tuna noodle dishes that we all spent our childhoods avoiding. But casseroles really don’t deserve such a bad rap—they’re quick to prep, easy to clean up, and can be healthy if they’re packed with the right stuff. These recipes, for example, are full of whole-wheat grains, fresh veggies, low-fat cheeses, and plenty of flavorful add-ins. Plus they’ll make tons of leftovers, so you’ll be able to squeeze out at least a couple extra healthy meals from one pan. Score.

Chicken and Kale Casserole

Though this recipe calls for a healthy dose of Parmesean and part-skim ricotta, the lemon zest keeps it light, and the whole-wheat pasta and fresh kale keep it packed with healthy nutrients. Even better, it’s a great recipe to prep ahead and leave in the fridge—everything is pre-cooked, so you only need to warm it up in the oven when you’re ready to eat it.
