The word “casserole”, originally French,was first used in the early eighteenth century to describe a dish or pot made from a material such as aluminium, cast iron, earthenware or glass in which food is both served and cooked.

The idea of casserole cooking as a one-dish meal became increasingly popular in America in the 1950s  as housewives learnt to create dishes by mixing together the readily available canned meats and fish, vegetables and soups. Tuna-noodle casserole was a particular favourite.

Return of The Jedi character Jabba the Huts's slithery noises when he moves were made by sound designer Ben Burtt running his hands through a cheese casserole.
