Here are our suggestions for dinner for the next seven days. The weeknight recipes take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time, many cook much quicker than that but may require constant stirring. On the weekends we like to try something different; recipes that cook long and slow, projects that get us using new ingredients and techniques, and menus to make entertaining a cinch. Join us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

MONDAY: BUTTERNUT-AND-BOURSIN SHELLS

Do you know Boursin? Well you should! This creamy, herb-and-garlic cheese is in the dairy aisle of most supermarkets. It packs a lot of flavor and melts easily and it's the star of this sumptuous vegetarian pasta, along with everyone's favorite winter squash, the butternut.

We've got another fast, nourishing soup for Chicken Soup Tuesday. It's bright with lemon and pesto and if you make it with store-bought broth and rotisserie chicken, it takes just 20 minutes.

This vibrant tomato-based stew takes just 30 minutes from start to bowl. It relies on clam juice rather than fish stock for its deeply flavored broth. Hint: You'd better make more than just four slices of herbed baguette toast -- everyone will want extra.

Traditional pot roast gets a Korean twist when beef chuck is slow cooked with gochujang (Korean pepper paste), mirin (sweet rice wine), sake, and plenty of garlic and ginger. Carrots and shiitake mushrooms complete the dish. Serve with rice and transform leftovers (if you have any) into Korean Beef Tacos.

SUNDAY: TARTIFLETTE

Indulge with us tonight, sample this Swiss specialty that some might say is the world's greatest scalloped-potato dish. A silken cheese (usually Reblochon) takes the place of the cream and lardons of crisp, smoky bacon are added. It's the ultimate apres-ski dish and also works well on a chilly Sunday night. The traditional accompaniments include gherkins and charcuterie but we think a crisp green salad and a glass of white wine work just fine.
