Casseroles offer an ideal alternative for the busy cook. Many of them contain meat, vegetables and starches; just add salad and bread, and you have a balanced meal. Clean up is easy since you do not have a lot of pots and pans to scrub. Another advantage is the fact that you can make two identical recipes at a time, one for dinner tonight and the other to freeze for later. You may even choose to make several different ones on the weekend, and freeze them for use during the week. Rachael Ray® cookware includes several casserole dishes in different sizes and shapes in which you can freeze, cook and serve your food.
