Crispy pancetta is folded into a creamy white cheddar cheese sauce, with roasted cauliflower and broccoli. Stir in al dente pasta and top with crunchy, buttery bread crumbs.

This rich yet nutritious Shepherd’s Pie will please the whole famly. Clodagh makes a quadruple batch, freezes three-fourths, and eats the rest the night she makes it.

No. 4: Rachael's Chipotle Chicken Nacho Casserole

Who doesn’t love nachos? Rachael "tiles" her chips, smoky chipotle chicken, and cheese so that the ingredients are well distributed, heats, and then tops with salsa, jalapenos and sour cream. Nothing wrong with any of that!

Tip: Make your life easier and give yourself more time to watch the games by using a pre-cooked supermarket rotisserie chicken!

No. 5: Cookie Monster’s Sausage and Zucchini Strata

This delicious casserole features layers of bread, zucchini, sausage and cheese. Even better – tell your kids that Cookie Monster invented it and they’ll be glad to eat it, and might even want to help make it!

Want carbonara AND mac and cheese? Why choose, when you can have both! And what a dish this is, with the mac and cheese being suspended in a fluffy soufflé.

No. 8: Rachael's Tuna Casserole

Rachael Ray Show

This classic Tuna Casserole recipe is a throwback! Sliced, white button mushrooms are browned and added with onion, garlic cloves, celery, dry Sherry, fresh bay and thyme. We stir in super-wide egg noodles to the savory mixture. Then top with grated gruyere cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, bread crumbs and parsley.

No. 9: David Venable's Cheesy Cheeseburger Casserole

Love boxed hamburger kits but want to make it yourself and know exactly what fresh ingredients are going into it? Try this Cheesy Cheeseburger Casserole? Yep! In a large skillet, we heat ground beef, onions, tomato sauce and seasonings. Mix in pasta, ricotta, sour cream, bell peppers and scallions. Then heavily sprinkle cheddar and mozzarella cheese until it’s bubbly and brown.

No. 10: Buffalo Chicken Potato Casserole

This mouth-watering casserole is definitely a treat! You just layer rotisserie chicken and potatoes, with a delish buffalo bechamel sauce and cheese. Delish!
