A one-pan wonder has a strong head start on its cousin, the one-pot wonder. Namely, you can skip the step of sautéing everything in the beginning, because everything will roast in the oven. In other words, less than ten minutes of work turns into an incredibly satisfying meal that’s just as good for company as it is for a weekday supper. —Claire Livia Lassam
