7 Hearty One-Dish Recipes That Are As Easy As They Come


By Cooking Panda

It’s just about fall, and regardless of how you feel about it, we suspect that your food wishes are similar to ours — you want filling, hearty meals, but you don’t want to put in the work. We got you! Here are some of our favorite fall recipes that only use one pot or pan — you can thank us later.

1. One Pot Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

Add your favorite protein and/or vegetables. Want more ideas for the wonder that is one pot pasta? Check this out.

2. Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili

With easy canned pumpkin puree, flavorful Italian sausage and a ton of beans and vegetables, you’ll love this easy but healthy Crock Pot meal.

3. One Sheet Pan Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Tenders and Green Beans with Fresh Grape Tomatoes

This would be tasty with fish as well, though you’ll want to keep an eye on it, as cooking times will vary.

4. One Pan Healthier Chicken and Zucchini Noodle Casserole

Craving casserole? Update that chicken noodle one you had 50x a week when you were a kid and turn it into something a little more edible.

5. 30 Minute Butternut Squash and Cider Soup

Who can resist creamy, rich butternut squash soup? It is sweet, savory and seasonal, and it somehow manages to be hearty and light all at the same time. But it can be a big pain to make. So skip all that nonsense, buy the pre-cubed stuff if you can, and make this super easy and very healthy but rich soup.

6. Everybody’s Favorite Strawberry Bacon Salad

Hang on to those last remnants of summer and make this flavorful, fruity, satisfying salad. Bonus: trick yourself into eating greens by loading them with bacon, strawberries, nuts and blue cheese (or feta, gorgonzola, goat cheese…whatever you prefer!)

7. Lamb Tagine with Couscous

Couscous is awesome because it cooks up in a flash, meaning that you can go ahead and throw it your pot towards the end of cooking your marinated lamb. Delicious and simple!
