Here is how you do eggplant Parmesan on a weeknight. This twist on the classic is just as comforting as the original, without any of the fuss.

You still get those crispy, crunchy breadcrumb bits, lots of sweet, garlicky tomato sauce, and all that gooey, melty cheese.

A big Dutch oven is the perfect vehicle to make a stovetop casserole that has everything you'd want in a weeknight dinner.

Everything steams together and turns into a meal that has it all: starch, protein, and veggies. To top it off, a super-quick honey and garlic sauce comes together while the casserole is cooking, then it's drizzled over each serving to add a touch of sweetness and another punch of garlic. If your freezer is already stocked with broccoli and shrimp, you can even decide on this dinner on the drive home from work.
