32 One-Pan Meals for Your Busiest Nights of the Week

written by HAILEY BOUCHE

There is nothing better than easy, delicious meals that require close to zero cleanup—especially on weekdays when you are already pressed for time and, let’s face it, have had enough work to do already. One-pan meals are the ultimate busy-girl hack, which is why I love to make them so frequently. There are about eight different recipes that are constantly on rotation in my home and even more on my “Want to Eat” Pinterest board that range anywhere from plant-based recipes to pasta dishes. Who knew you could do so much with just one piece of cookware?

I’m always looking for more ways to streamline dinner (and lunch) and reduce the number of dishes in my sink, which is why I pulled together a bunch of one-pan recipes I can’t wait to try. If you’ve got a busy week ahead, you’ll love these 32 one-pan meals that require minimal work and cleanup.
