These dump-and-bake casserole recipes use dry rice and canned beans for a simple, nourishing, and hearty main!
Salsa Verde White Bean Casserole // Southwestern Black Bean Casserole // Sweet Potato Rosemary Casserole
Chickpea & Rice Casserole // Buffalo Cauliflower & Chickpea Casserole // “Cheesy” Broccoli Rice Casserole
Spinach & Artichoke Casserole
In these recipes dry pasta simmers in the oven along with veggies and a sauce, leaving you with a perfectly seasoned meal. You can use either gluten-free and wheat-based pasta in these recipes; I like to use a chickpea-based pasta for an extra boost of plant protein.
No-Boil Mushroom Stroganoff // No-Boil Pesto Pasta Bake // No-Boil Chickpea Noodle Casserole
Roasted Spring Vegetable and Pesto Pasta // Vegan Chorizo Pasta with Roasted Tomato Sauce // Spinach & Artichoke Pasta with Lemon Butter Sauce
My husband and I tried the Buffalo Cauliflower casserole and loved it. We used mild Buffalo sauce, and Brianna’s vegan ranch dressing. We are now trying the Spinach and Artichoke recipe. These recipes are so easy and have helped us tremendously since we both work full-time. We now have more time to do the things we like without trying to figure out what’s for supper or lunch.
Thank you for sharing and keep them coming. 🙂
We are delighted that you’re able to make fast and easy meals with the recipes and enjoying them with your husband, Cynthia!
Anyone have recommendations on cook time using an instant pot? Thanks!
This sounds great! How can I make a larger quantity, say 1.5 – 2 times as much? Is it possible to make in a larger baking dish?
Hi Viv, any of these recipes can be doubled and made in a larger dish, though you might have to increase cooking times slightly. I would start with he suggested cooking time in the recipe and continue checking in every 5-10 minutes until cooked through.
I’m new to your dump casseroles. Love them! Do you think they can be made in th Instant Pot? I hate to use the oven in the summer,
Yes, they can be made in an instant pot!
My family requests the Chorizo Roasted Tomato Pasta dump and bake recipe. I think I’ve made it five times since you have posted it! Thank you for such easy dinner meal ideas!
