One-Dish Dinners for the Entire Week

One-pot meals are the busy mom’s dream come true. Not just because they can often be made ahead of time, but also because they reduce kitchen clutter, chaos, and — most important — cleanup. Take a look at these one-pot meals for inspiration, then let your imagination and taste buds run wild. The only limitation is the number of cooking vessels.

Weeknight Lasagna Toss

For the Kids’ Night Cooking:

Weeknight Lasagna Toss is a perfect dish for older kids to make because although it uses the stove, the traditional lasagna form is deconstructed for a melty, saucy rendition that simply gets tossed together and served.
