When it comes to radiating warmth at the dinner table, nothing beats a meal-in-one casserole. What's more, this dish can be assembled a day ahead, goes straight from the oven to the table, and offers help-yourself allure in abundance.
Sauteed leek, celery, and carrot form a flavorful base; potatoes add heft; and Parmesan rind makes the broth luxurious and savory. But the real stars of the dish are asparagus, English peas, and sugar snap peas, each contributing seasonal flavor to every spoonful.
