I admit it- I love casseroles. They’re delicious. Casseroles generally encompass everything I love- carbs, meat, gooeyness, and almost always topped with cheese. What’s not to love about that??

It’s super easy and (somewhat) healthy. It has asparagus in it, that’s healthy, right?

I'm big on casserole cooking because I don't have to wash as many dishes that way! I tend to serve on what I call the good china (disposable plates) unless I'm having company (that would be tacky).

Did I mention that the quicker and easier a dish is the better and casseroles are the easiest!
