Not Your Mother's® Casseroles

Not Your Mother’s® Casseroles

Quick—what do you think of when you hear the word casserole? Simple, fresh, one-dish meals that are budget-friendly and popular on any dinner table? No? Do you think instead of canned onion rings and cream-of-something soup?

Think again.

It’s time for fresh thinking on the casserole. The more than 200 one-dish meals in these pages are fresh, tasty, budget-friendly, and nutritious. They use wholesome, seasonal ingredients and streamlined techniques to get meals on the table with a minimum of fuss, and they take advantage of the full range of flavors available in today’s supermarkets. Yes, they’re still called casseroles, but prepare to think fresh. Author Faith Durand has brought the casserole into the 21st century, and these one-dish wonders are most decidedly Not Your Mother’s Casseroles.
