Gather up garden veggies, some fresh farmers market finds, and a handful of delicious toppings to create a casserole that's perfect for summer. Just pop your casserole into the oven, and your one-dish dinner is ready to go!

Tomato-Topped Corn and Feta Casserole

Fresh summer sweet corn is definitely on display in this luscious casserole. Start by turning six ears of corn into a creamy corn pudding, then top with roasted cherry tomatoes from your garden. Serve it up as a summer potluck side, or make it a main by adding chicken.

Vegetable-Pesto Risotto Casserole

Zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, summer squash, corn ... we can't think of any summer vegetables this casserole doesn't have! Put your garden (or farmers market) to the test when you bake up this veggie-filled summer casserole for dinner.

Caprese Casserole

Caprese salad isn't just a side dish anymore—we transformed this potluck favorite into a hearty pasta casserole that makes a great summer dinner. It's got the classic tomato-basil-mozzarella combo, plus loads of spinach and chickpeas. Are you hungry yet?

Roasted Zucchini Lasagna

If you've got extra zucchini, this veggie lasagna will definitely help you use it up. With almost 2 pounds of zucchini layered with lasagna noodles, tomato slices, and Italian sausage, this hearty summer lasagna is perfect for feeding a crowd.

Italian Garden Casserole

If you want an early-summer treat, take advantage of fresh artichokes at their peak in May. But if you've missed the peak season, don't despair—you can substitute frozen artichoke hearts and still get lots of fresh summer flavor from cherry tomatoes and basil.

Tuscan Tuna-Mac Casserole

Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't indulge in your favorite rich, cheesy comfort food. We turned this classic tuna casserole into a summer-ready dish by adding fresh tomato slices and basil on top.

More asparagus, please! This twist on classic tuna casserole has over a pound of asparagus mixed in, plus new potatoes and Kalamata olives. Ready in just over an hour, this casserole is bursting with fresh summer produce in every bite.

Swiss Corn Bake Cups

Skip the mess of serving corn on the cob—we've got a much better way for you to enjoy this summer staple. Mix your fresh sweet corn with chopped onion, eggs, and your favorite cheese to make individual side-dish casseroles that will disappear even faster than an ear of fresh corn.

BLT and Chips Casserole

Yep, we did it: We turned your favorite summer sandwich into a fresh and easy casserole. It has bacon, greens, and tomatoes, of course, but our favorite addition is the extra-crunchy potato chips.

Quinoa Caprese Casserole

Looking for a light summer dinner? You've found it! We replaced pasta with quinoa to make this casserole a little less heavy (but no less tasty), then topped it with cherry tomatoes and basil to add a burst of summer freshness.

Vegetable Casserole

No need to turn on your oven for this summer casserole recipe—it can simmer away in your slow cooker! A trio of veggies (tomatoes, spinach, and radicchio) plus cannellini and garbanzo beans slow-cook on your counter during the day, so dinner is ready as soon as you walk in the door at night.

Farro, Cherry Tomato, and Asparagus Casserole

Cherry tomatoes nestled between cheesy layers in this vegetable casserole add fresh summer flavor to every bite. Dress it up with fork-tender asparagus, basil, and a pinch of bread crumbs.
