When it comes to spring dinners, most of us are thinking light, bright and healthy. With so many colorful vegetables cropping up in the grocery stores and local farmers markets, it's easy to let seasonal produce inspire your menu. But another big consideration when it comes to getting dinner on the table is finding recipes that deliver great taste and nutrition without a ton of effort. If you're searching for dishes that come together quickly and are low on cleanup, look no further. These one-pot or one-pan dishes are so satisfying and allow you to spend more time outside with the people you love rather than doing dishes.
Bonus: one-pot or sheet-pan meals usually yield enough for leftovers, so consider tomorrow's lunch sorted too!
