By: Danielle Zimmerman, Editor,

Sometimes a simple spaghetti meal isn't enough. Our collection,17 Cheesy Pasta Casserole Dishes, includes the best pasta casserole recipes from all over the world. Each recipe has its own flavor inspiration, though there is one thing that holds all of these delicious pasta casserole dishes together: cheese, and lots of it.

Cheese can make or break a pasta casserole. Rich, creamy, bubbling cheese makes the best pasta casserole recipe even better. Mozzarella, Parmesan, ricotta... Each type brings out something different from a dish. These 17 Cheesy Pasta Casserole Dishes all utilize their respective cheeses of choice to their advantage so that you can serve the best possible meal.

While some of these are easy pasta casseroles, others may take a little bit more work. They are, however, definitely worth it. The Italian pasta casserole recipes are bursting with robust flavors that only Italians could create. There are also quite a few delicious baked macaroni and cheese recipes. These are unlike any mac and cheese recipes you've ever had before. Some incorporate simple ingredients such as ham and peas, while others transform the classic dish into something completely different. If you're a bit more health-conscious than others, there are a few special diet casseroles as well. They're just as tasty as regular pasta casserole dishes but have more health benefits.

So much cheesiness, so little time. So, what are you waiting for? Check out these 17 Delicious Cheesy Pasta Casserole Dishes!
