It’s that time again; you’re thinking about dinner and what to cook. So here’s our weekly list of suggestions: dinner recipes that take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time or cook quicker then that but may require constant stirring. Yes, there will be pasta, and, yes, it will be delicious. So visit us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

 

Monday: Tomato Panzanella with Ricotta

Oh, panzanella, how we adore you! The elemental combination of juicy tomatoes, day-old bread, and basil in this Italian salad is just divine. A dollop of creamy ricotta sends it over the top in a most delicious way.

TUESDAY: Cavatelli with Spinach, Caramelized Fennel, and Fried Eggs

Last week we suggested salad topped with a fried egg, this week pasta. What's next? And why the egg here? Well, for one, when you cut into the soft yolk, it coats everything like a silky sauce. This meatless recipe calls for homemade cavatelli; but, hey, it's a weeknight -- store-bought pasta is the way to go here.

WEDNESDAY: Chicken and Snap Peas

When time is tight, you still need a dinner that tastes great. This one-skillet recipe has late spring flavors, the sweetness of sugar snap peas is balanced by a pinch of red pepper flakes, and takes just 30 minutes from start to plate. Serve with crusty bread or rice.

Friday night is for grilling -- or using that grill pan. Cook outdoors, eat outdoors: make the most of the summer weather as well as of summer produce -- yes, we mean corn fresh from the cob!

Try this cracker of a crust for a lush spinach and feta tart that's our update and healthy take on spanakopita. No phyllo here, not even pastry to roll, it's an easy press-in crust. This is a favorite recipe of Eat Clean host Shira Bocar.

In case you hadn't noticed, this is the first weekend of summer. Mark the occasion with that great American tradition, the clambake. Our stove-top version makes it an easy indoor cooking event though outdoor dining is a distinct possibility. We think of this meal as a party in a pot. (Yes, it's a big pot!)
