One-pan pasta is hot right now, and it's no wonder. Throw everything in the pot, cook it all together for a few minutes, and voila! Dinner is served (and dish-washing is a cinch!) Loads of meatless dishes lend themselves perfectly to the one-pot treatment--and they don't have to be limited to pasta, either. Here are 20 of our favorite one-skillet and one-pot vegetarian dinners.

Great roundup, they are all beautiful!
Stella @ Stellicious Life says
Love this idea of putting everything in one bowl/pan and cooking at once, how washing-up and time efficient! 🙂 Great round up, will have to use some of these for next week's meal planning.
Just a heads up that parmesan is not vegetarian most of the time. Be careful!
