40 Fall Casseroles That Will Give You All The Cozy Feelings

Delish Logo By Camille Lowder of Delish | Slide 1 of 41: When the temperatures start dropping, is there anything more comforting than a casserole? They’re simple to throw together; can be filled with all your favorite seasonal ingredients (butternut squash! turkey! Brussels sprouts! sweet potatoes!); and can easily feed a hungry group (think: after-school crowds or tailgate dinners). Check out our 40 fall casseroles for ideas—just assemble, pop one in the oven, you’ll have a comforting dinner on the table in no time.Of course, casseroles can be enjoyed year-round (check out our summer casseroles for proof), but there’s really something special about a fall casserole. They’re hands-down the easiest weeknight dinner option because of their ability to turn more elaborate meals into one-pan marvels. Love chicken pot pie, but hate rolling out pie dough? Try our chicken pot pie casserole or our chicken pot pie noodle bake—they’re everything you adore, with half the effort. Craving pasta, but don’t want to worry about the juggling act of perfectly cooked noodles (what is al dente, anyway?), sauce, and ladling everything onto individual plates? Try a baked pasta dish: Lasagna is classic, and it’s easy to fold cozy fall flavors into one, like our butternut squash lasagna, our mac and cheese lasagna, or our broccoli rabe and Italian sausage lasagna. You can also bake other noodles into a casserole, like in our copycat Olive Garden five-cheese ziti al forno, our baked spaghetti, or our baked penne alla vodka with turkey. Got a crowd of potato fans, but don’t want to deal with individual servings? Try our loaded mashed potato bake or our twice-baked potato casserole. They can be enjoyed as the main meal or as a side, and are perfect for bringing along to fall potlucks.Speaking of potlucks, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention THE casserole holiday of the fall season: Thanksgiving! We’ve included a number of classic green bean casseroles and sweet potato casserole recipes, but don’t let those be the extent of your holiday options. Check out our Thanksgiving casseroles for more ideas—do like we do, and make them all fall long.
