Rich, savory, studded with vegetables, and often draped with cheese, these vegetarian casseroles are irresistible even for nonvegetarians. Enjoy vegetable gratins for every season, as well as lasagnas, potpies, and enchiladas.
Wrap Monterey Jack, queso fresco, or a combination of cheeses in corn tortillas, and bake in your choice of three sauces -- tomato-jalapeno, tomatillo, or chile-raisin. Serve the enchilada casserole with an assortment of garnishes such as diced red onion, avocado, cilantro, and sour cream.
This elegant vegetarian lasagna serves 12, making it a perfect dish for entertaining. Feel free to substitute frozen spinach for the fresh if you are pressed for time. Madeira wine and a generous amount of fresh parsley add depth and flavor to the creamy sauce.
A soul-satisfying dinner of three-cheese baked ziti, garlic bread, and green salad with red-wine vinaigrette only takes 40 minutes, start to finish. Feel free to add soy sausage or thawed frozen spinach to the ziti mixture.
