One Pot Meal

If time is of the essence, sometimes a one-pot meal is all we can manage to scrounge up. It happens to the best of us. But quick and simple doesn't have to mean bland and generic — or expensive, unhealthy and ordered out — now does it? Plus, the beauty of one-pot meals is that they usually can be prepared in advance. That way, you can do the prep work when you have the time, and skip being chained to the stove when you don't.

If you have recipes for easy one-pot meals (or crockpot/slow-cooker, pressure cooker and casserole recipes ... that sorta thing), please share them below. A home-cooked meal is almost always cheaper and healthier than takeout, so just think of all the families you'll be supporting with your fab recipes!
