Let us help you get a delicious dinner on the table. The weeknight recipes here take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time, many cook much quicker than that but may require constant stirring. These are meals the whole family can enjoy. Yes, there will be pasta. So join us every week for dinnertime inspiration.
Monday: Cauliflower Fried Rice
You've had cauliflower as steak, now here's cauliflower as rice: shredded cauliflower makes a crave-worthy low-carb version version of fried rice.Get the Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe
TUESDAY: Seared Steak with Minted Green-Bean Slaw
Something beefy to elevate your Tuesday: We like the economy, flavor, and tenderness of chuck steak, but sirloin or any other boneless steak, pounded thin, is excellent, too.Get the Seared Steak with Minted Green-Bean Slaw Recipe
WEDNESDAY: Bacon Macaroni and Cheese
We consider this a deluxe version of everyone's favorite baked pasta -- because bacon makes everything better! And because it has Gouda for sheer cheesiness, Gruyere for sophistication, and Parmesan, well, just because.... This one-pot wonder has wide appeal. It's bound to be gobbled up by everyone from the youngest to the oldest at your table.Get the Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Recipe
THURSDAY: Shrimp Francese
In this week's episode of better than takeout -- or maybe we'll call it better than your local Italian joint -- Lucinda Scala Quinn's take on the Italian-American comfort food classic comes to the table in just 25 minutes. And it disappears from plates even faster!Get the Shrimp Francese Recipe
FRIDAY: Sausage-and-Mushroom Burgers with Broccoli Rabe
Just the thing for the end of the work week: Our Oktoberfest take on the burger features sweet Italian sausage and mushrooms in a patty. Dress the ciabatta roll with mayo, add a patty, some Provolone, and that all important broccoli rabe.
SATURDAY: Spinach and Gruyere Quiche
Go quiche: It's eggy and cheesy, and the addition of spinach takes it into the realm of health food -- well, not quite, but this deep-dish quiche (more filling!) is sheer genius. Comfort food in a pastry shell.
SUNDAY: Roast Chicken with Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes
It's time -- to roast a chicken that is. You'll love this one-pot meal: Everything roasts together, flavors meld, everything is complementary -- and utterly delicious. A real Sunday dinner but with minimal cleanup.Get the Roast Chicken with Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes Recipe
