Your to-do list is a mile long, the dog needs to be walked, car pooling needs to happen, and dinner? Haven’t even thought about it. We’ve been there. We get it. On the days when free time is not your friend and you think there’s no way I could cook dinner tonight, remember these 10 one-pot meals. Remember that it’s possible to whip up a hearty and nutritious meal without slaving over a Jenga stack of dirty dishes afterwards. So whatever you do, don’t kiss your pots and pans goodbye. YOU GOT THIS.

1. One-Pot Ravioli Bake with Spinach, Thyme, and Parmesan Breadcrumbs

Just when we thought pasta night couldn’t get any better, our chefs doubled down on the spinach. This nutritious green can be found in the ravioli AND fresh in the gratin. But we have a feeling you’ll be too busy devouring the panko breadcrumbs and creamy Parmesan to notice.

2. One-Pot Shrimp and Orzo with Peas and Lemon

Since everyone seems to love orzo, we thought: why not boil it with tomatoes, shrimp, and aromatics to soak up all the flavor? And why not toss in sweet peas at the very end for a pop of color while we’re at it?

3. One-Sheet Sausage and Pepper Hoagies with Broiled Asparagus

This ballpark classic is perfect for baseball season, but considering how easy it is, we’d be happy eating it any time of the year.

4. Spicy Pork and Kale Soup with Udon Noodles

Thick udon noodles are perfect for slurping, which is exactly what you’ll be doing with this warming pork soup.

5. One-Pot Mexican Quinoa with Sweet Corn, Feta, and Jalapeño

This one-pot Mexican wonder is loaded with hearty quinoa, black beans, and diced tomatoes—not to mention chunks upon chunks of creamy feta cheese.

6. One-Pot Tortellini Wonder with Kale and Parmesan Breadcrumbs

In this recipe, our chefs managed to strike a balance between comfort and nutrition by combining creamy cheese tortellini with kale and finishing it off with a crispy panko Parmesan topping.

7. Spicy Shakshuka with Chickpeas, Feta Cheese, and Chili Flakes

Shakshuka is the ultimate eggs-for-dinner meal. In this Israeli staple, eggs are poached directly in the protein-packed sauce but not cooked all the way through. After all, you need some runny yolk to dip that toast into!

8. One-Pot Italian Wedding Soup with Pork Meatballs and Kale

The name “wedding soup” supposedly comes from the marriage of hearty greens and broth, but we like to think it’s because the soup is so good, you could make it your one and only. Fluffy ricotta pork meatballs steal the spotlight here, but you’ll also fall in love with the soup’s tenderness (from wilted kale) and mischievous fun side (from bouncy, bubbly couscous).

9. Game-Day Black Bean Chili with Southwestern Spices

If you’re looking for a recipe to satisfy your whole team, chili is a safe bet. And when you drop the “con carne” and make it with hearty black beans, it becomes a dish that everyone can enjoy. Here, we’re adding in a dynamic spice duo of chili powder and cumin, then finishing it with slices of creamy avocado.

10. Tortellini en Brodo (aka Soup for the Soul) with Shredded Brussels Sprouts, Kale, and Parmesan Cheese

Tortellini “en brodo” (aka “in broth”) is one of our all-time favorite one-pot meals. It’s warming, nutrient-packed, and comes together with the help of one pan, and one pan only.
