One dish meals are great for those times when you just can’t muster up the motivation, energy or time to cook an elaborate meal. Instead of needing multiple pots and pant to create a meal, one dish meals allow you to feed yourself and your family bountifully with just one delicious dish.

One dish meals can vary a lot in preparation time, number of ingredients and complexity of the recipe. These are our favorite one-dish meals you can cook up whenever you’re pressed for time or just don’t want to put that much work into preparing a multi-course meal.
