It's that time again; you're thinking about dinner and what to cook. 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. On the weekends, there's more time to try something new or cook something slow. Visit us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

MONDAY: CAULIFLOWER STEAKS WITH ROMESCO SAUCE

Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will appreciate this hearty knife-and-fork dish. It's made by cutting a head of cauliflower vertically into thick slabs, then roasting it until it's crisp and browned on the outside but still tender inside. Serve each "steak" with romesco sauce or try tapenade, chimichurri, or salsa verde.

Here's a one-pot dinner that requires oven time but not much prep. Get it going, then kick back with a glass of wine while it cooks. Bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs and potatoes are baked in a zesty sauce made with fire-roasted tomatoes and olives.

SATURDAY: THREE-BEAN RIBOLLITA

Marcus Nilsson

This comforting, economical Tuscan soup takes just a couple of hours with a pressure cooker-and that includes cooking three types of dried beans from scratch. The end result is a hearty bean-and-vegetable dinner to cozy up to.
