A Great Collection of Recipes
Casseroles represent comfort food for me so I was happy to find this cookbook full of recipes that are healthy, easy to make, and most can be frozen for quick meals later. As with the other "500" cookbooks in this series from Sellers Publishing, there are actually 100 or so base recipes with 4-5 variations for each that complete the total that the title promises.Was this review helpful?

There are color photographs which is always a plus, and the ingredients are easily found in any grocery store. I made the tortilla lasagne which my family really liked. Not only was it simple to put together, but I was able to make it earlier in the day so it was ready pop in the oven for 20 minutes for dinner. It also freezes well.
Classic casseroles such as boeuf bourguignon, chicken and dumplings, macaroni and cheese, and turkey tetrazzini can be found in this cookbook alongside rigatoni and italian sausage bake, kedigeree (an Indian dish), autumn squash casserole, jambalaya, and broccoli and mushroom noodle bake, stuffed zucchini, and shrimp and wild rice casserole. I'm looking forward to trying many of the recipes and appreciate that the ingredients are fresh instead of relying heavily on canned or processed foods.
Chapters include family feasts, pasta and rice, elegant fare, meat casseroles, poultry casseroles, fish and seafood, vegetarian and vegan, light casseroles, quick and easy casseroles, and international favorites.
This would be a great addition to any cookbook collection, especially for those who like the ease of casseroles.
