casual dinner for a group of 6

I know this is sort of a generic question but I'm looking for ideas for a sort of one-dish dinner I can serve one night next week. The problem is, it's a workday, so I'll really only have about an hour or so of prep time...I'm thinking I'd make the dish in advance (perhaps a night or two before) and then the hour would be basically spent setting up, heating the meal, etc.
A nice fall, hearty dish would be good, here are some of my initial thoughts:

-Chicken parm (would cook up some penne w/olive oil and garlic on the side)
-Baked ziti (or perhaps a lasagna)

Would love to hear any other thoughts & recipes (including any special recipes for the above, though I've got my own tried and true for chicken parm, chili and ziti.)
