This Week for Dinner, We’re Still Savoring Stew and Other Cold-Weather Comforts

It’s not quite everything asparagus yet.

Senior Digital Food Editor

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. Yes, there will be pasta, and, yes, it will be delicious. 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. Visit us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

Elevate Tuesday night with this sophisticated-in-taste but simple-to-make pork-and-vegetable sauté. It uses slices of pork tenderloin, but you could sub thin pork chops if you fancy.

FRIDAY: Italian Seafood Stew

Dinner tonight is on the Amalfi coast—well, we wish it was. Perhaps this quick, flavorful tomatoey stew will transport you to Italy? It calls for clams and cod, or whatever the freshest firm-fleshed white fish is at your market. You'll need white wine for the stew, so be sure to pour a glass for the cook. Bonus points if it's an Italian white.

Sunday: Roasted Quartered Chicken with Herb Sauce

We're still roasting chicken, but consider this recipe a nod to spring. Cutting the chicken into pieces speeds up the roasting time, and the sauce is irreistible. We think you'll adore the Crispy Potatoes with Rosemary too. They cook in the oven at the same time as the chicken. We call that a winning pair.
