I give up. I'm just going to call it all "dinner."


Unless it's dessert.

You could make a dessert casserole!

Well I'm glad that's all decided then.


A casserole is a casserole unless it is something else and then it is isn't.


I think.

Yup... lasagna casserole, moussaka casserole, ziti casserole, because they're all baked in a casserole dish. Simple.

Doesn't a casserole dish have a lid though? Lasagnas are open baked as are the 2 other dishes you mention.

Italians would be waving their hands to hear a lasagna be called a lasagna casserole! Mamma mia!!

Ones I've had were made in a casserole. The last recipe I made was done in a 4" deep casserole, not a pie pan.

As I said, not when and where I grew up. "Casserole" was the cookware, and "hotdish" was the contents (one of my favorites Mom always called called "Aunt May's Hotdish" because we got the recipe from my Aunt May). And it wasn't just my family, it seemed to be standard usage in the parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin where I spent my childhood back in the 1950's.

We have at least a couple of casseroles without lids (and not because they got broken )

Nope, that would be a "covered casserole" with a lid or foil. Directions will tell you to either cover, or leave it uncovered. Well, actually if it doesn't say to cover it, you don't.

I have a problem with defining a dish by the container it's cooked in. If the dish has a filling and a crust, it's a pie, even if it's in a casserole dish. Just my opinion.

As I said, not when and where I grew up. "Casserole" was the cookware, and "hotdish" was the contents (one of my favorites Mom always called called "Aunt May's Hotdish" because we got the recipe from my Aunt May). And it wasn't just my family, it seemed to be standard usage in the parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin where I spent my childhood back in the 1950's.

You're saying what I'm saying, "hotdish" is a regional name for casseroles. You mention Minnesota and Wisconsin where "hotdish" is standard. Wikipedia adds North Dakota.

It's fairly standard in other parts of the US to refer to the cookware as a casserole dish as well as what's in the cookware (when the contents are like a hotdish).

We have at least a couple of casseroles without lids (and not because they got broken )
I have a 13"x9" casserole dish. We use it for cakes, brownies, lasagna and casseroles/hotdishes. I wouldn't call the cakes, brownies or lasagna casseroles.
