Casseroles used to be more of a thing – a cheesy, gooey, filling comfort dish that felt like a special treat. It’s time to get that feeling again, with an upgrade! The green lentil pasta in this chicken and broccoli casserole makes it gluten-free and adds nutrition benefits. And you can choose to use vegan cheese to make the whole she-bang non-dairy, but still packed with protein. Whichever way you (casse)role, this satisfying dish is sure to make its way into your modern family’s healthy dinner rotation.
