If you haven't made a casserole lately, it's time to give the unsung hero of the workweek another look. These anything-but-outdated dishes are among our favorite make-ahead meals.

Old-Fashioned Rich Chicken Pie

A dash of Tabasco adds a jolt of vibrancy to this classic comfort-food dish. (A cup of heavy cream doesn't hurt either.)

Shepherd's Pie

Made with flavorful ground lamb, this irresistible one-pot meal from cookbook author Colman Andrews is a simple Sunday-night project.

Cornbread-Crusted White Chili with Green Chilies and Hominy

Looking for a way to re-purpose leftover roast chicken? Try this insanely good dish.

Chicken and Pepper Casserole

Made with layers of toasted bread, sharp Provolone, and garlicky cubanelle peppers, this comforting casserole from our own Mitchell Davis is like an "Italian pot pie."
