Perfect for mid-week family meals or fuss-free entertaining, these delicious and wholesome one-pot dishes are the tasty and convenient solution for people who love good home-cooked food.
At the end of a busy day, the thought of something bubbling away in the oven can feel like a welcome retreat, and these delicious home-made recipes are meant to do just that, provide a comforting meal, all with help of just one pot or pan. With little preparation, and enough time to walk away from the oven while it cooks to perfection, each dish is done with busy people in mind; those who want to spend a little time preparing something that is hearty and nutritious, all the while not being tied to the kitchen. For a meaty dish try the Meatball Tagine, an eggplant-filled Lamb Moussaka, or a Farmhouse Chicken Casserole. For some fish favorites choose from the classic Crispy-Crumbed Fish Bake, Moroccan Prawn Ragout, or Roasted Provençal Salmon with Vegetables. Or, if you want to showcase vegetables in dishes of their own, turn to the Sweet Potato, Spinach & Chickpea Stew or the Artichoke, Mushroom & Olive Pasta Bake. Each recipe is easy to make and can be eaten on its own, or at most with a green salad or some crusty bread. So, gather ingredients, ready your sheet-pan, casserole dish, or pot, and tuck in to this oven-to-table fare.
