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: Fried Eggs with Greens and Mushrooms
The fastest dinner of the week just happens to be vegetarian too; you can get this one-pan meal on the table in just 15 minutes. Bonus it's a healthy breakfast-for-dinner option, packed with your choice of hearty greens and mushrooms.
TUESDAY: Shortcut Italian Wedding Soup
Chilly nights call for a hearty, comforting bowl of soup. This quick take on the Italian classic builds flavor with seared hot sausage, toasted pasta, and a Parmesan rind for an umami boost.
WEDNESDAY: Broiled Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry with Water Chestnuts
Another fast, one-pan dinner. This "stir-fry" cooks under the broiler rather than on the stovetop. It simulates the technique and taste of stir-fry but is even easier. If you aren't familiar with skirt steak, this recipe will make you a fan—it's a cheap, flavorful cut.
THURSDAY: Chicken Puttanesca with Orzo
Chicken cutlets in a zesty tomato sauce with capers and olives over orzo—what's not to like? Added bonus: the sauce is made in the same pan you sauté the chicken cutlets in. Who doesn't like less cleanup?
FRIDAY: Roasted Sea Bass with Sweet Potatoes, Spinach, and Salsa Rustica
You know we love a sheet-pan dinner (Okay, we adore any type of one-dish dinner!). Kick back while the oven does the work tonight, then enjoy the meaty bass fillets with healthy greens and sweet potatoes. We're using capers again tonight, this time in a parsley, oil, and vinegar sauce that's drizzled over the meal just before serving.
SATURDAY: Turkey Chili
Fast enough for a weeknight and delicious enough for any night, that's this quick-to-cook turkey chili that's just as flavorful as the beefy original—and is all made in one pot.
SUNDAY: Roast Pork with Fennel, Chiles, and Olives
A roast dinner, isn't that what Sunday is all about? Fennel, chiles, and olives are wonderful with pork loin. Sub carrots, cauliflower, and onions if that's what your crew would most enjoy. And on the side? Are you a roast potatoes family or more on the polenta team?
