When you have a busy week, it’s likely you only have time to make dishes that require little effort and little clean-up. That’s where sheet pan dishes come in. These recipes are simple, and the instructions largely boil down to: place your ingredients on a pan, heat up your oven and walk away. Beyond almost no hands-on cooking time, sheet pan dinners are also great because you won’t have to worry about washing multiple dishes after cooking dinner, making them perfect for when you want to meal prep or having a home-cooked meal after a long day of work or school.
