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. Some recipes will be much faster than that. We’ll suggest what you can do to prep ahead and cut down on weeknight work. Recipes will be family-friendly, but we’ll stretch the boundaries beyond chicken tenders and broccoli. Yes, there will be pasta, and, yes, it will be delicious. So visit us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

 

Monday: Cauliflower Steaks with Romesco Sauce

Start the week off in colorful, flavorful, meatless fashion with this hearty dish. The roasted cauliflower steak is crisp and browned outside but tender within. And that Romesco sauce? It's a Spanish classic made with red bell peppers, tomato, almonds, and smoked paprika. You'll want to use it on grilled meat, chicken, and pretty much everything.

Give tonight a little spice courtesy of this red-curry-paste and coconut-milk Thai-style curry. Sirloin is the star and asparagus brings crunch. It's super fast to make (especially in a wok if you have one) and super-tasty too.

WEDNESDAY: Skillet Shrimp and Orzo

Go shrimp with this one-pot pleaser! Think of it as a stripped-down paella, made with rice-shaped pasta rather than rice, along with tomatoes, shrimp, and plenty of garlic.

Frozen corn is a dinner saver throughout the year, here this freezer staple goes extra-creamy and slightly Southern, alongside plate-lickingly good glazed chicken thighs -- and all in just 25 minutes.

FRIDAY: Spring Vegetable Ragout

Ragout is just stew by another name, but it sounds so much better, prettier. And this wonderfully seasonal mix of leeks, asparagus, sugar snap peas, and radishes -- for a burst of color among the green -- is pretty and tasty. Serve over polenta or farro.

SATURDAY: New Classic Burger

Everyone loves a burger. Adding sirloin to the usual chuck keeps the juiciness while adding beefiness to this next-level patty. Pair it with your favorite condiments -- the combo of cheddar, pickles, ketchup, and mayo is our special sauce! A potato bun is a must.

A  delicious update on a favorite comfort food: This meatloaf is made with ground chicken (which has half the fat of beef) and broccoli; the steamed florets make it extra-moist. Continue the healthy approach by serving with mashed sweet potatoes -- and use extra-virgin olive oil, not butter, to mash.
