125 Best Casseroles and One-Pot Meals

Untitled drawing

125 Best Casseroles and One-Pot Meals is one of my favorite cookbooks.  Casseroles and one-pot meals are the ideal solution for busy home cooks 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.  I know I am running most nights after school getting the kids everywhere they need to be.   Many of these recipes you can actually make ahead too!  This cookbook includes 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 all on cold winter nights. The skillet meals range from small and quick dinners and stir-fries that are easy for novice cooks to elegant dishes that are entertaining worthy.  Here are a few of the recipes that can be found:


  • Baked Tortellini with Three Cheeses, Quick Mushroom-Beef Lasagna, Chicken and Shrimp Pad Thai, Pasta E Fagioli Casserole

Chicken and Turkey

  • Honey-Curried Chicken and Apricots, Individual Chicken Pot Pies, Quick Cassoulet, Turkey and Corn Enchiladas

Beef and Veal

  • Meatball Stroganoff, Osso Buco-Style Braised Veal, Skillet Shepherd’s Pie, Indian Corn Stew, Classic Cabbage Rolls

Lamb, Fish and Seafood

  • Braised Lamb Shanks with Olives, Grilled Eggplant Moussaka, Salmon and Potato Strata, Seafood and Broccoli Lasagna


  • Garden Paella, Confetti Corn and Chili Pie, Squash and Bean Stew with Chipotle Cream, Roasted Summer Vegetable Lasagna.

Turkey Vegetable Tray

Turkey Vegetable Tray
  • Kale
  • Celery
  • Baby carrots
  • Sweet peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Yellow zucchini
  • Cherry tomatoes
  1. Arrange kale along the outside of the platter you are using. Those will be tail feathers.
  2. Add the celery on top of the kale (but not completely covering it).
  3. Cut half of the zucchini and use that as the turkey's head.
  4. Slice the peppers and use them as the body.
  5. Add in the cherry tomatoes as the caruncles.
  6. Slice the cucumbers and use that as the breast.
  7. Use 2 celery sticks as the feet.
  8. Use little pieces of the peppers as the eyes and the beak. We used toothpicks broken in half to get them to stick.



HelloFresh is a new way to shop and cook. You get to choose the recipes you want to try each week, and HelloFresh sends you the recipe and all of the ingredients you need to prepare them.




These aren’t your run of the mill recipes either. Their recipes are created by world-class chefs. They are also easy to prepare within 30 minutes. You don’t need fancy kitchen equipment, and the recipe cards really tell you how make everything (with color pictures too!).


When we tried HelloFresh, we tried the Turkey Taco Salad:




Seared Steak:


Fish Tacos:


The serving sizes for these meals are huge! We had leftovers for everyone of these meals! They were totally easy to make too! Best of all, they were delicious! I would highly, highly, highly recommend HelloFresh. I can’t get food this good at my local grocery store and I would definitely use them again!
