The right casserole for a speedy recovery

Macaroni-and-cheese is the all-time comfort casserole.

I received a call from a Fat City reader last week with a bittersweet request: A friend of hers was going through chemotherapy and a group of friends had agreed to take dinner to the woman’s family on different nights. A casserole seemed the obvious choice, since it could be prepared in advance and then baked at the family’s convenience.

There were very few caveats, except that the youngster in the family was not a fan of onions. So what kind of casserole would be tasty, not too complicated to make, totally kid-friendly, and low on exotic ingredients?

There was only one logical source to ask.
