Comfort Food for Cooler Weather -- Made Healthier

From Eating Well:

21 Fall Casseroles Made Healthy

"Warm and gooey casseroles are an ultimate fall comfort food. But classic recipes are often loaded with high-fat, high-sodium ingredients like cream-of-something soups. Our healthy casseroles are packed with yummy vegetables and lean protein. Don't miss our Creamy Hamburger Noodle Casserole or Quinoa & Butternut Squash Casserole and more!"

The secret, of course, is to maximize veggies, beans and other healthful ingredients while minimizing stuff that is less good for us, such as cheese and meat.
Click here to check out the magazine's suggestions for everything from baked mac and cheese to hamburger-and-noodle casseroles, all with less than the usual amount of fat and calories per serving....but still pretty delicious.
(For instance, the photo is of Baked Cod with Chorizo and White Beans -- just a little of the chorizo goes a long way in adding flavor!)
