Fall has arrived and time is at a premium. Take advantage of a complete meal in one pot to save time, satisfy a crowd and keep the clean up easy and stress-free.



Beef: Zesty Ziti with Beef Sauce will make even your pickiest eaters lick their plates.


Chicken: Chicken Noodle Stir-Fry is packed with healthy veggies and lean chicken breast.


Pork: Pork Chop Sauerkraut Simmer is perfect as the nights get chillier and is equally good as leftovers; a few boiled potatoes are a classic accompaniment to serve alongside if you need to stretch your budget.


Vegetarian: Green Bean and Mushroom Risotto makes an easy vegetarian one-dish meal or is great as a side dish for a piece of grilled or baked fish.


Seafood: If time is at a real premium, try our Peel-and-Eat Shrimp Boil, ready in only 15 minutes!


In-season veggie: Enjoy the harvest season two ways with our Broccolini. This recipe will work with broccoli or rapini as well.
