10 Dinner Recipes For One That'll Make You Wish You Had Leftovers

Got a table for one? We understand that it may not sound appealing at first, but we actually enjoy cooking dinners alone.

If you're used to making larger meals, don't worry; each of these super-simple recipes can be easily scaled down to 1 to 2 serves.

We are convinced that once you try some of these dinner for one recipes, you will wish you had more for leftovers the next day. 

Pasta is not only a core food category here at Delish, but it is also one of our go-to dishes when we are cooking for one. 

It's simple to adjust based on how hungry we are that night, endlessly adaptable with pantry basics, and ideal for a weeknight. 

Whether you're craving a traditional Italian pasta meal like cacio e pepe or pasta alla gricia, or a new favorite like our baked feta pasta, you'll find that pasta never fails.

Are you in the mood to really reward yourself? On luxurious nights when we're dining alone, we enjoy grilling up a delicious steak.

Consider this: you don't have to share any of your cast-iron skillet steak if you don't want to, and you'll seem quite spectacular when you do have friends around!
