Dinner for Two

It’s easy to fall into a take-out habit when it’s just the two of you, especially after a long, cold winter day. These satisfying one-dish meals put dinner on the table in under 30 minutes—about as long as it takes for a pizza to be delivered. From hearty basil “meatballs” and pasta to a mild creamy curry to a Swiss-style potato cake made with marinated artichokes, there’s plenty of textural and flavor variety to perk up your weeknight routine—without any leftovers to have to pack up.
