Casseroles conjure up images of hearty, comforting meals shared with family or friends, or both. Everybody loves digging into a bubbling hot casserole… if only there were more great casseroles to love!  Here, author Betty Rosbottom (Sunday Soup, Sunday Roasts, Sunday Brunch) shares 60 modern casserole recipes using fresh, whole foods – no processed ingredients – that elevate the beloved bake to Sunday dinner status (and leftovers fame).

In SUNDAY CASSEROLES, every dish is designed to look as enticing as it tastes, from the beautiful Sea Scallops Nestled in Piperade to the creamy “Baked” Risotto with its colorful chunks of butternut squash and prosciutto. Other instant-favorite recipes  include Cider-Braised Pork with Red Cabbage and Apples; Farfalle with Asparagus, Roasted Shallots, and Creamy Blue Cheese; and, of course, Mac and Cheese (including luscious variations using lobster or smoked sausage).
