One-Pan Dinner Ideas
- Not sure what to do with extra tomatoes, peppers, onions and cucumbers? Blend these tasty vegetables together with garlic and spices for a cool gazpacho soup.
- Try having breakfast for dinner. Make a fabulous frittata in a skillet using sliced potatoes, eggs, cheese and chopped vegetables.
