Want to throw dinner together without a lot of fuss? These three meals are cooked entirely in one pot; just keep layering in ingredients for a hearty, satisfying dish that's loaded with flavor. While they all start with rice and build on similar ingredients — onions and garlic make an appearance in all three, and you can use the same bottle of white wine for two of the recipes — they all showcase different proteins and flavor profiles. Best of all, when dinner's over, there's just one pot to wash!
