52 Weeks of Cooking – Week 3

July 16 , 2014 by: Marga Munson 52 Weeks of Cooking

The third week of 52 Weeks of Cooking brought us the One Pot theme. I was already a BIG fan of easy dinners where you only have one pot to clean (hello time saver!) but I fell even deeper in love with the concept during this weeks’ challenge.

I looked up one pot dinners and one of the first hits was from a blog called Budget Bytes. This blog has become one of my go-to sites to check for delicious, homemade and inexpensive recipes. Really great stuff. I highly recommend checking it out.

So, on to the challenge. I used the Italian Wonderpot recipe with no adaptations from Budget Bytes.

It came together fantastically well, and we have enjoyed it about once a month since. It’s a big hit for a crowd as well. I usually use chicken broth instead of veggie broth because I always have it on hand. It tastes about the same, and is a good substitution if you aren’t looking for a 100% vegetarian dish. One more brag about this dish, it’s a pantry lover. Pretty much all the ingredients are things you probably already have in your house!!! So it’s cheap, easy, DELICIOUS, and you don’t need fancy one-time use ingredients. Win. Win. WIN!




  • Hey Marga, this looks delicious and I am going to make it. In looking at the recipe, I thought it may be an adaptation of Minesta, soup. All is missing are some beans, white or red and add more broth to make it soup and have it with garlic bread on a cold night., Love Mom
