Casseroles without cheese, cream cheese or sour cream?

Is there any way to make casserole dishes without cheese, cream cheese or sour cream? My husband does not eat any of that stuff but I'm trying to find some good casserole recipes. Does anyone have any?

  • I mentioned this question to my mom and she said what about pizza casserole. You could make it without the cheese. You just use rotini pasta, sauce, and whatever else you like on your pizza and bake them together for about 20 min.

  • Tha Ss my mom makes that for me and I love it!! I think she used sour cream and mixes the powder ranch into it instead of using salad dressing but it is sooo yummy!!

  • I'm pretty sure those are what makes them casseroles. But, I understand what you mean. You would like something easy to make that could all go together. Hope someone has some really good ideas for you :)

  • Being an orthodox Jew, many times I don't cook with any dairy because we can't eat meat and dairy in the same meal. So I suggest you look around kosher cooking sites for ideas on dairy free meals. You can try to start. Do a search on "kosher cooking".

  • I rarely use cheese, and never use the other 2, and I frequently make casseroles. I use cream soups, or I make a white sauce. Still has milk either way, so that's no help if you're looking for entirely dairy free. The other option would be to make gravy - make your own stock or buy stock, and thicken with cornstartch - I do that too sometimes when I don't want creamy. And if you make your own stock you can control the sodium content better.
