9 Healthy Casseroles

By Shannon Bauer | March 20, 2020 | Shape

One pan, one hour — and dinner is served.

1. Sweet Potato Zucchini Casserole

This casserole recipe has everything you need for a well-balanced meal in one pan: protein, vegetables, and healthy carbs. The zucchini, ground turkey, and sweet potato are mixed with tomato sauce and cheese for a surprisingly delicious combination.

2. Low-Carb Pizza Casserole

Keto and non-keto eaters alike will love this low-carb, pizza-inspired dish made with cauliflower, marinara sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese. 

3. Unstuffed Cabbage Casserole

This take on stuffed cabbage rolls uses the same ingredients—ground beef, rice, blanched cabbage, and cayenne pepper for a bit of kick—but it only takes half the time. Try freezing and pulling out to bake whenever you need an easy, no-fuss dinner.

4. Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

World's easiest breakfast: Bake a pan of oatmeal on Sunday and eat slices the rest of the week. The chopped almonds and rolled oats are given sweetness and flavor with cinnamon, honey, and blueberries.

5. Spaghetti Squash Casserole

The base of this recipe is spaghetti squash, combined with turkey, Italian seasonings, and cheese. Tip: Make the spaghetti squash ahead of time, then the ingredients only need to be mixed and baked for about 30 minutes.

6. Cheesy Caprese Chicken & Quinoa Casserole

When you hear "casserole," you probably think of a calorie bomb of carbs and fat. This recipe will change your mind. This bake of leftover rotisserie chicken, quinoa, grape tomatoes, and fresh basil clocks in at just 337 calories and 29 grams carbs per serving.

7. Spinach Wild Rice Casserole

This casserole recipe combines spinach, broth, and a little half-and-half to recreate the flavors of wild rice soup. Red pepper flakes and Gruyère add a bit of pizzazz.

8. Mexican Casserole

Sometimes weekend plans trump a three-hour meal prep sesh. That's when this recipe comes in handy — it's ready in less than an hour. First, sauté the onion, garlic, and bell peppers. Place tortillas in the bottom of a baking dish, then layer beans, veggie mixture, enchilada sauce, and cheese.

9. Turkey & Egg Breakfast Casserole

A high-protein breakfast or brinner recipe to keep on retainer. Ground turkey, eggs, sweet potato, and chili powder are layered and baked. If the recipe is made without added cheese, it is also paleo-friendly.
