Healthy dinner ideas can be hard to come by, especially when you’re on a budget. This budget friendly, one pan broccoli casserole is gluten free, paleo friendly, and loved by all! Plus, it’s oven ready in less than 15 minutes, and only has 4 ingredients!
Finding meal ideas that are healthy, fast, and easy can seem like an impossible task. And finding meals that are easy on the wallet can seem even harder, especially when you’re on a specialty diet like the Primal or Paleo diet.
We like to do a Paleo cleanse several times a year, which includes cutting out all grains, sugars, and even fruits.
During those times it can seem like there’s nothing to eat! However, this simple broccoli casserole dinner recipe is a favorite no matter what meal plan we are following.
It’s ready in 30-45 minutes from start to finish, and is just about one of the most delicious meals you’ll ever eat. It’s even husband and kid approved!
