Healthy Casserole Dishes

Some easy, good-for-you one-dish meals

6. Quinoa Casserole by Stephanie O'Dea

You need a slow cooker for this casserole, but it's not time-consuming since the quinoa can be left to cook on its own. Add the spinach and tomatoes at the end.

Per Serving: 301 calories, 3g saturated fat, 40g carbohydrates, 12g protein, 4g fiber

7. Autumn Game Casserole by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Brigitte Hafner

This cold-weather casserole calls for fall game of your choice, such as venison, rabbit or pheasant. You can also use turkey or pork loin.

Per serving: 340 calories, 2g saturated fat, 30g carbohydrates, 32g protein, 6g fiber

8. Greek Chicken Casserole by Terry Golson

A mix of chicken, feta and zucchini, this Mediterranean dish is delicious and an easy make-ahead meal — perfect for dinner parties.

Per serving: 379 calories, 3g saturated fat, 9g carbohydrates, 31g protein, 2g fiber

9. Vegetarian Lasagne by Marie Simmons

Lasagne is not a traditional casserole, but we love the combination of vegetables in this dish. Layer, bake and serve fresh from the oven.

Per serving: 384 calories, 8g saturated fat, 37g carbohydrates, 19g protein, 4g fiber

10. All-Day Cassoulet by Andrew Schloss

This dish involves quite a bit of effort, so you might want to save it for a lazy Sunday or a special occasion. The end result is a serious hunger-buster full of lamb, sausage, duck, beans and herbs.

Per serving: 799 calories, 20g saturated fat, 34g carbohydrates, 34g protein, 9g fiber
