Today I’m sharing a super easy, one dish, family friendly quinoa casserole with you. It’s great for any busy weeknight and can be made the night before and popped in the oven the next day. It also freezes fantastically and I often make a second dish of it to take out on a particularly full day. It's also the perfect dish to bring to a friend in need, with a new baby or a new neighbor.
