One-Pot Pasta from Damn Delicious

This time of year, it can feel like it’s winter one day and spring the next. Frigid at the start of the week, and warm for the weekend. Chilly in the morning, and nice enough to walk and play outside in the evening. Even on the springlike days, the nights are still a bit cool, so I’ve been cooking warming meals after we come back inside. Today, we’ve gathered 20 creative and warming one-pot meals that are perfect for taking off the chill—and don’t require a lot of kitchen prep or cleanup time!
