Anne Burrell's Lasagna

You definitely won't leave the table feeling hungry if you serve Anne's hearty lasagna layered with Italian sausage, cremini mushrooms and a trio of cheeses. The classic marinara ties everything together.

Manicotti

Loaded with spinach and three cheeses, Food Network Kitchen's wholesome manicotti requires only 15 minutes of prep work. Prepare the dish earlier in the day, then pop it in the oven just an hour before dinner.

Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells

Filled with ricotta and tender chicken-thigh meat, these stuffed shells are the best vessel for our beloved &mdash and ultra-creamy &mdash Alfredo sauce yet!

Baked Manicotti with Sausage and Peas

Jarred marinara and store-bought manicotti shells make this casual Italian comfort food a great weeknight dinner. Bake the sausage-stuffed shells until bubbly and golden brown.

Cheesy Shell-Stuffed Shells

There's only one way to elevate baked mac and cheese to another level of comfort food: Stuff the pasta with more pasta!

Rigatoni Pie

With just a few extra minutes of prep time, a classic baked pasta dinner is transformed into an eye-catching pie. To save time, instead of making your own tomato sauce, you can substitute 4 cups of smooth-textured, store-bought marinara.

Giada De Laurentiis' Baked Rigatoni with Bechamel Sauce

The key to pulling off Giada's decadent baked pasta dish is all in the bechamel sauce — a creamy mixture of butter, flour and whole milk that makes the perfect rich coating for the rigatoni and prosciutto.

Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables

This vegetarian baked pasta dish is bursting with color and flavor. Fontina, smoked mozzarella and Parmesan cheese add creaminess and flavor depth.

Ree Drummond's Baked Ziti

Just look at the ooey-gooey cheese blanket resting atop this hearty pasta casserole. Not only does the dish exude comfort and heft thanks to the beef-sausage meat sauce, but it also feeds a crowd.

Italian Baked Chicken and Pastina

Pastina means "little pasta," so you can use any small-shaped pasta for this dish. When baked with chicken, tomatoes and mozzarella, it becomes a cheesy indulgence — the ultimate Italian comfort food.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This perfect, classic macaroni and cheese is all about contrast, with a crunchy, buttery topping and a creamy, cheesy interior.

Ina Garten's Mac and Cheese

Ina uses nutmeg to bring out the nutty quality of Swiss gruyere and cheddar cheese then tops her dish with sliced tomatoes and breadcrumbs.

Rigatoni Pie alla Vodka

The tender upright tubes of pasta in this dish are filled and topped with a creamy tomato-vodka sauce, turning a classic Italian dish into a vertical centerpiece.

No-Boil Stuffed Shells

The standard lasagna may call for tomato sauce, but Ina's top-rated recipe comes with a rich white sauce instead, which brings a creamy contrast to sauteed portobello mushrooms, grated Parmesan and lasagna noodles.

Shrimp Scampi Tetrazzini

The supremely creamy sauce of tetrazzini is baked together with the sharp flavors of garlic and lemon from shrimp scampi for a ridiculously good mashup casserole.

Butternut Squash Lasagna

Giada's ultra-decadent lasagna calls for convenient no-boil lasagna noodles, but you can use fresh spinach lasagna sheets as a substitute. Look for fresh lasagna sheets in the refrigerated section of specialty markets.

Ree's crowd-pleasing noodle bake features layers of savory browned beef, tender egg noodles, sour cream, green onions and lots of cheddar cheese.

Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells

When your favorite spinach and artichoke dip meets super creamy pasta shells, that's the epitome of cheesy, gooey goodness.

Beef and Cheese Manicotti

Bursting with meaty, robust flavor, Giada's traditional manicotti is the quintessential comfort food. Once the manicotti are cooked to al dente perfection, enlist the kids' help in stuffing, rolling, then stacking them in your baking dish.

Lobster Macaroni and Cheese

Tomato paste, heavy cream and sweet chunks of lobster tail come together to create this extra-thick, extra-decadent macaroni and cheese that's worthy of a special occasion.

Baked Spaghetti

This mash-up of lasagna and spaghetti with meat sauce makes for a warming one-pan dinner. (And if you start with leftover cooked noodles and meat sauce, you're set for a super-fast weeknight meal.) Assemble the casserole ahead of time and bake when you're ready to serve.

Giada's ultra-decadent lasagna calls for convenient no-boil lasagna noodles, but you can use fresh spinach lasagna sheets as a substitute. Look for fresh lasagna sheets in the refrigerated section of specialty markets.

Venetian Macaroni and Cheese

Giada's Venetian-style mac and cheese is one of her favorites. Fontina and mozzarella cheese add creaminess while Parmesan adds a kick of salty flavor.

Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Ree's crowd-pleasing noodle bake features layers of savory browned beef, tender egg noodles, sour cream, green onions and lots of cheddar cheese.

Mini Meatball Pasta Bake

Ree's chunky homemade tomato sauce is just the thing to bind together this robust dish of penne pasta and plump mini meatballs.

Spaghetti Carbonara Pie

Pan-fried pancetta and broccoli rabe add excellent color and texture to Deb Perelman's stunning spaghetti pie. Be liberal with the grated cheeses &mdash that way, the exterior will develop a delicious golden-brown crust after baking.

Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells

When your favorite spinach and artichoke dip meets super creamy pasta shells, that's the epitome of cheesy, gooey goodness.

Beef and Cheese Manicotti

Bursting with meaty, robust flavor, Giada's traditional manicotti is the quintessential comfort food. Once the manicotti are cooked to al dente perfection, enlist the kids' help in stuffing, rolling, then stacking them in your baking dish.

Lobster Macaroni and Cheese

Tomato paste, heavy cream and sweet chunks of lobster tail come together to create this extra-thick, extra-decadent macaroni and cheese that's worthy of a special occasion.

Baked Spaghetti

This mash-up of lasagna and spaghetti with meat sauce makes for a warming one-pan dinner. (And if you start with leftover cooked noodles and meat sauce, you're set for a super-fast weeknight meal.) Assemble the casserole ahead of time and bake when you're ready to serve.

Baked Lasagna Roll-Ups

By simply rolling up lasagna noodles and cheese and standing the pasta roll-ups on their sides, you can transform a traditional pasta dish into a work of art.

Pastitsio

This hearty meal has a secret that's really going to set it apart from other baked pastas: cinnamon. Use it to season the meat in this classic Greek dish and wow everyone at the dinner table.

Anne Burrell's Lasagna

You definitely won't leave the table feeling hungry if you serve Anne's hearty lasagna layered with Italian sausage, cremini mushrooms and a trio of cheeses. The classic marinara ties everything together.

Lasagna Rolls

Giada De Laurentiis rolls sheets of al dente lasagna into a clever dinner with a mixture of ricotta cheese, spinach and prosciutto. They get topped with sauce and cheese, then bake up into individual portions.

Manicotti

Loaded with spinach and three cheeses, Food Network Kitchen's wholesome manicotti requires only 15 minutes of prep work. Prepare the dish earlier in the day, then pop it in the oven just an hour before dinner.

Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells

Filled with ricotta and tender chicken-thigh meat, these stuffed shells are the best vessel for our beloved &mdash and ultra-creamy &mdash Alfredo sauce yet!

Baked Manicotti with Sausage and Peas

Jarred marinara and store-bought manicotti shells make this casual Italian comfort food a great weeknight dinner. Bake the sausage-stuffed shells until bubbly and golden brown.

Cheesy Shell-Stuffed Shells

There's only one way to elevate baked mac and cheese to another level of comfort food: Stuff the pasta with more pasta!

Rigatoni Pie

With just a few extra minutes of prep time, a classic baked pasta dinner is transformed into an eye-catching pie. To save time, instead of making your own tomato sauce, you can substitute 4 cups of smooth-textured, store-bought marinara.

Giada De Laurentiis' Baked Rigatoni with Bechamel Sauce

The key to pulling off Giada's decadent baked pasta dish is all in the bechamel sauce — a creamy mixture of butter, flour and whole milk that makes the perfect rich coating for the rigatoni and prosciutto.

Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables

This vegetarian baked pasta dish is bursting with color and flavor. Fontina, smoked mozzarella and Parmesan cheese add creaminess and flavor depth.

Ree Drummond's Baked Ziti

Just look at the ooey-gooey cheese blanket resting atop this hearty pasta casserole. Not only does the dish exude comfort and heft thanks to the beef-sausage meat sauce, but it also feeds a crowd.

Italian Baked Chicken and Pastina

Pastina means "little pasta," so you can use any small-shaped pasta for this dish. When baked with chicken, tomatoes and mozzarella, it becomes a cheesy indulgence — the ultimate Italian comfort food.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This perfect, classic macaroni and cheese is all about contrast, with a crunchy, buttery topping and a creamy, cheesy interior.

Ina Garten's Mac and Cheese

Ina uses nutmeg to bring out the nutty quality of Swiss gruyere and cheddar cheese then tops her dish with sliced tomatoes and breadcrumbs.

The Ultimate Lasagna

Tyler Florence dubbed this dish The Ultimate Lasagna with good reason: It's built in three generous layers of lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese and savory Bolognese sauce. If you can, prepare the Bolognese well in advance. That way, constructing the dish will be a breeze.

Rigatoni Pie alla Vodka

The tender upright tubes of pasta in this dish are filled and topped with a creamy tomato-vodka sauce, turning a classic Italian dish into a vertical centerpiece.

No-Boil Stuffed Shells

Stuff shells with a creamy cheese mixture straight out of the box and never wait for a pot of water to boil again! Jarred sauce helps the shells bake to gooey perfection in the oven.

Creamy Baked Fettuccine with Asiago and Thyme

Store-bought creme fraiche is the key to making Giada's five ingredient recipe into a creamy baked pasta.

Ree Drummond's Lasagna

Layering is the name of the game when prepping Ree's family-friendly lasagna. She starts with noodles, then piles on a creamy mixture of cottage cheese and Parmesan, a sprinkle of mozzarella, and plenty of tomato meat sauce for craveable results.

Portobello Mushroom Lasagna

The standard lasagna may call for tomato sauce, but Ina's top-rated recipe comes with a rich white sauce instead, which brings a creamy contrast to sauteed portobello mushrooms, grated Parmesan and lasagna noodles.

Shrimp Scampi Tetrazzini

The supremely creamy sauce of tetrazzini is baked together with the sharp flavors of garlic and lemon from shrimp scampi for a ridiculously good mashup casserole.

Stuffed Lasagna Pie

Lasagna flavors are given a party-stopping timpano presentation in this recipe. The lasagna noodles create a crisp shell for the traditional fillings within: meat sauce, cheese and sausage.

Baked Ziti

A duo of creamy mozzarella and nutty Parmesan creates the perfect blanket atop Robert Irvine's top-rated pasta casserole.

Chicken Alfredo Manicotti

Filling uncooked manicotti shells with a chicken, cheese and spinach filling, then baking them to perfection in a creamy, rich Alfredo sauce just might be the quickest route to comfort food.

With spaghetti and mushroom sauce, and light and dark meat chicken with bell peppers, this casserole is like two meals in one. Cooking the spaghetti in the same liquid as the chicken infuses it with flavor, and the Cheddar thickens the sauce so it coats each piece of meat.

Butternut Squash Lasagna

Giada's ultra-decadent lasagna calls for convenient no-boil lasagna noodles, but you can use fresh spinach lasagna sheets as a substitute. Look for fresh lasagna sheets in the refrigerated section of specialty markets.

Venetian Macaroni and Cheese

Giada's Venetian-style mac and cheese is one of her favorites. Fontina and mozzarella cheese add creaminess while Parmesan adds a kick of salty flavor.

Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Ree's crowd-pleasing noodle bake features layers of savory browned beef, tender egg noodles, sour cream, green onions and lots of cheddar cheese.

Mini Meatball Pasta Bake

Ree's chunky homemade tomato sauce is just the thing to bind together this robust dish of penne pasta and plump mini meatballs.

Spaghetti Carbonara Pie

Pan-fried pancetta and broccoli rabe add excellent color and texture to Deb Perelman's stunning spaghetti pie. Be liberal with the grated cheeses &mdash that way, the exterior will develop a delicious golden-brown crust after baking.

Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells

When your favorite spinach and artichoke dip meets super creamy pasta shells, that's the epitome of cheesy, gooey goodness.

Beef and Cheese Manicotti

Bursting with meaty, robust flavor, Giada's traditional manicotti is the quintessential comfort food. Once the manicotti are cooked to al dente perfection, enlist the kids' help in stuffing, rolling, then stacking them in your baking dish.

Lobster Macaroni and Cheese

Tomato paste, heavy cream and sweet chunks of lobster tail come together to create this extra-thick, extra-decadent macaroni and cheese that's worthy of a special occasion.

Baked Spaghetti

This mash-up of lasagna and spaghetti with meat sauce makes for a warming one-pan dinner. (And if you start with leftover cooked noodles and meat sauce, you're set for a super-fast weeknight meal.) Assemble the casserole ahead of time and bake when you're ready to serve.

Baked Lasagna Roll-Ups

By simply rolling up lasagna noodles and cheese and standing the pasta roll-ups on their sides, you can transform a traditional pasta dish into a work of art.

Pastitsio

This hearty meal has a secret that's really going to set it apart from other baked pastas: cinnamon. Use it to season the meat in this classic Greek dish and wow everyone at the dinner table.

Anne Burrell's Lasagna

You definitely won't leave the table feeling hungry if you serve Anne's hearty lasagna layered with Italian sausage, cremini mushrooms and a trio of cheeses. The classic marinara ties everything together.

Lasagna Rolls

Giada De Laurentiis rolls sheets of al dente lasagna into a clever dinner with a mixture of ricotta cheese, spinach and prosciutto. They get topped with sauce and cheese, then bake up into individual portions.

Manicotti

Loaded with spinach and three cheeses, Food Network Kitchen's wholesome manicotti requires only 15 minutes of prep work. Prepare the dish earlier in the day, then pop it in the oven just an hour before dinner.

Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells

Filled with ricotta and tender chicken-thigh meat, these stuffed shells are the best vessel for our beloved &mdash and ultra-creamy &mdash Alfredo sauce yet!

Jarred marinara and store-bought manicotti shells make this casual Italian comfort food a great weeknight dinner. Bake the sausage-stuffed shells until bubbly and golden brown.

Cheesy Shell-Stuffed Shells

There's only one way to elevate baked mac and cheese to another level of comfort food: Stuff the pasta with more pasta!

Rigatoni Pie

With just a few extra minutes of prep time, a classic baked pasta dinner is transformed into an eye-catching pie. To save time, instead of making your own tomato sauce, you can substitute 4 cups of smooth-textured, store-bought marinara.

Giada De Laurentiis' Baked Rigatoni with Bechamel Sauce

The key to pulling off Giada's decadent baked pasta dish is all in the bechamel sauce — a creamy mixture of butter, flour and whole milk that makes the perfect rich coating for the rigatoni and prosciutto.

Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables

This vegetarian baked pasta dish is bursting with color and flavor. Fontina, smoked mozzarella and Parmesan cheese add creaminess and flavor depth.

Ree Drummond's Baked Ziti

Just look at the ooey-gooey cheese blanket resting atop this hearty pasta casserole. Not only does the dish exude comfort and heft thanks to the beef-sausage meat sauce, but it also feeds a crowd.

Italian Baked Chicken and Pastina

Pastina means "little pasta," so you can use any small-shaped pasta for this dish. When baked with chicken, tomatoes and mozzarella, it becomes a cheesy indulgence — the ultimate Italian comfort food.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This perfect, classic macaroni and cheese is all about contrast, with a crunchy, buttery topping and a creamy, cheesy interior.

Ina Garten's Mac and Cheese

Ina uses nutmeg to bring out the nutty quality of Swiss gruyere and cheddar cheese then tops her dish with sliced tomatoes and breadcrumbs.

The Ultimate Lasagna

Tyler Florence dubbed this dish The Ultimate Lasagna with good reason: It's built in three generous layers of lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese and savory Bolognese sauce. If you can, prepare the Bolognese well in advance. That way, constructing the dish will be a breeze.

Rigatoni Pie alla Vodka

The tender upright tubes of pasta in this dish are filled and topped with a creamy tomato-vodka sauce, turning a classic Italian dish into a vertical centerpiece.

No-Boil Stuffed Shells

Stuff shells with a creamy cheese mixture straight out of the box and never wait for a pot of water to boil again! Jarred sauce helps the shells bake to gooey perfection in the oven.

Creamy Baked Fettuccine with Asiago and Thyme

Store-bought creme fraiche is the key to making Giada's five ingredient recipe into a creamy baked pasta.

Layering is the name of the game when prepping Ree's family-friendly lasagna. She starts with noodles, then piles on a creamy mixture of cottage cheese and Parmesan, a sprinkle of mozzarella, and plenty of tomato meat sauce for craveable results.

Portobello Mushroom Lasagna

The standard lasagna may call for tomato sauce, but Ina's top-rated recipe comes with a rich white sauce instead, which brings a creamy contrast to sauteed portobello mushrooms, grated Parmesan and lasagna noodles.

Shrimp Scampi Tetrazzini

The supremely creamy sauce of tetrazzini is baked together with the sharp flavors of garlic and lemon from shrimp scampi for a ridiculously good mashup casserole.

Stuffed Lasagna Pie

Lasagna flavors are given a party-stopping timpano presentation in this recipe. The lasagna noodles create a crisp shell for the traditional fillings within: meat sauce, cheese and sausage.

Baked Ziti

A duo of creamy mozzarella and nutty Parmesan creates the perfect blanket atop Robert Irvine's top-rated pasta casserole.

Chicken Alfredo Manicotti

Filling uncooked manicotti shells with a chicken, cheese and spinach filling, then baking them to perfection in a creamy, rich Alfredo sauce just might be the quickest route to comfort food.
