Casserole

Casserole - A heavy dish suitable for food to be baked in and food baked in a casserole dish.

A casserole (French: diminutive of casse, from Provençal cassa 'pan') is a large, deep pan used both in the oven and as a serving vessel. The word is also used for the food cooked and served in such a vessel, and, if so, the cookware itself is called a "casserole dish" or "casserole pan". "Casserole" should not be confused with the word cacerola, which is Spanish for "cooking pot".
