The holidays are upon us.

You know what that means– dinner after dinner after dinner.

From fall through winter, expect gatherings ranging from “Friendsgiving”, family Christmas, and New Year’s with friends.

Through all of these events, you need meals that are tasty, easy, reliable, and hearty.

Good thing we’ve prepared five one-pot meals for that holiday cramming.

Sauté your garlic and onions then brown the sausage. Add in your stock, water, the marinara sauce, and your spaghetti.

Let it simmer for 18-22 minutes with the lid on. Stir occasionally. Once the spaghetti is tender, your dish is ready to go.

Serve with parmesan cheese or fresh basil leaves.

Next, we have ground turkey pasta.

This is perfect for Thanksgiving and for people who prefer white meat over their red counterparts.

This is a hearty meal that you can whip up in a flash and without much effort.

For this, we’ll need ground turkey meat, onions, bell pepper, garlic, spices like chili powder, paprika, and cumin.

We’ll also need some tomato sauce, chicken stock for the flavor, and your favorite pasta.

Optional ingredients:

Mexican blend cheese, sour cream, and cilantro.

Sauté your onions, bell pepper, and garlic. Add in your turkey and let it cook.

Dump in your liquids, such as the stock and the tomato sauce. Add spice for additional flavor.

You can use different pasta shapes for this recipe like bowtie, fusilli, or even clam-shaped ones.

Simmer while occasionally stirring for 14-18 minutes. Once done, add in your sour cream, cheese, and cilantro.

How about some quinoa?

This superfood has been gaining traction because it’s fiber-rich, filled with antioxidants, and a good protein source.

It also became a popular choice because of how easy it was to prepare.

Saute some garlic and jalapeño peppers. Next, add in your quinoa, broth, corn, diced tomatoes, and bean.

Season with cumin, chili, and S&P.

Simmer while occasionally stirring for around 18 minutes, or until the quinoa is fluffy and tender. Finish with some lemon juice.

Next up- chicken lasagna soup.

Winter is almost here and this chicken soup variation will surely warm you up. This hearty meal is not only simple but tasty as well.

Cook your cubed chicken breast, set them aside, then sauté your carrots and onions.

When your vegetables are soft, add some flour.

Slowly add your chicken broth then add your chicken, beans, and some “torn-up” lasagna sheets.

Once ready, add in some herbs and spices, mozzarella cheese, and half-and-half.

One-pot chicken pesto and tomato pasta.

This extremely versatile dish can be an additional side or a meal in itself.

First, fry and cook your cubed chicken breast then set it aside.

Fill your pot with water and cook the pasta of your choice.

Drain the water and in the same pot, add your cherry tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, chicken, and jarred pesto sauce.
