August 21, 2023

Looking for easy weeknight dinner recipes? Look no further than this list of 16 one pan meals that keep your dishes to a minimum and flavor to a maximum! From pots, to pans, to bowls these healthy and one-pot and sheet pan meals are sure to be a hit.

We’re big big fans of one-pan meals around here. Whether it’s an easy sheet pan dinner or a filling bowl of soup, my goal is always to maximize flavor while minimizing dishes. To be fair, I’m not the dishwasher around here but I don’t need to go out of my way to leave C with a whole sink load of dishes.

Weeknights are also a whole boatload of chaos with a toddler running around so keeping things simple is best. Even better if the ingredient list is also simple but also includes protein and vegetables.

So as back-to-school ramps up and we’re all trying to get by, I thought I’d round-up some of my favorite one-pan and one-pot meals. Let’s get to it…
