In our easy equation, one pot = dinner. And in this case, since it's Sunday, it may well be the friendliest meal of the week. Sunday supper spells family and friends. It means casual entertaining, and it always provides a welcome for warming, nourishing food that pulls people in around the table. With this enticing collection of recipes, "friendly" extends to the cook, because one pot means less work and minimal cleanup. Here you'll find Sunday "Supper in a Bowl", which means homestyle and hearty soups, chilis, and gumbos; "Speedy Sunday Suppers", whipped up in 20 minutes or less in a skillet or wok; and roasted meals and casseroles, like Cornbread-Stuffed Pork Chops with Vidalia Onion Sauce, Beer and Chile Braised Beef Brisket, and Tuna, Broccoli, and Brie Casserole, which bake in the oven while you take a rest. There are plenty of chicken and turkey one-pot suppers - Italian Chicken and Sausage with Rice and Seared Peppers, Vegetable Stew with Turkey Meatballs; meaty Sunday suppers - Mediterranean Beef Stew with Olives and Prunes, Shanghai Short Ribs, Chile-Rubbed Lamb with Pinto Beans; and, of course, everyone's favorite, pasta suppers - Pasta and Pepper Frittata, Baked Tortellini with Tomatoes and Cheese, Pasta Paella. On the lighter side, you can choose from "Seafood Suppers" - Red Snapper Creole, Baked Shrimp with Feta and Tomatoes, Nicoise-Style Haddock with Couscous - and "Mostly Meatless Meals", which feature vegetables, beans, and grains.
