Starring Creamy Chicken, Baked Pasta, and Other Dinner Favorites

We've got delicious meals for busy people.

Senior Digital Food Editor

Our dinner recipes are just what you need for a delicious meal every night. The easy weeknight recipes here take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time, many cook much quicker than that but may require constant stirring. These are meals the whole family can enjoy. Yes, there will be pasta. 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. So join us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

Monday: Pumpkin Pasta

A great, healthy way to use that extra can of pumpkin puree, that's this easy baked pasta. Pumpkin is an inspired combo with kale. Bonus: it's vegan and oh so comforting.

WEDNESDAY: Meatballs with Garlic Bread

A beefy, saucy dinner that also takes just 35 minutes! Cooking the meatballs in the tomato sauce saves time and infuses the sauce with meaty flavor. Bonus: There's only one pot to wash. Added bonus: This recipe includes a super-easy route to garlic bread-deliciousness using hoagie rolls rather than a loaf.

FRIDAY: Broccoli-Cheddar Baked Potato

Cheesy, warm, and satisfying, this baked potato is just what a Friday night dinner should be. If cheese sauce and broccoli are not your family's ideal fillings, set up a baked potato bar with all the fixings so everyone can customize their tattie with black beans and salsa, smoked salmon and sour cream, and the other wonders that work so well in a baked potato.

SATURDAY: Mushroom-Bacon Galette

An easy-going free-form tart that our friend Dorie Greenspan made when she visited the test kitchen. It starts with a pâte brisée-like dough that comes together quickly in the food processor (you can also swap in store-bought piecrust). The filling of leeks, mushroom, and bacon sounds simple but tastes magical. Dorie says to serve it with "a fluff of salad."

The slow cooker does wonders for humble beef chuck. Braised with shallots, red wine, tomatoes, fennel, rosemary, and orange zest, the meat is super tender and bursting with flavor after several hours of cooking.
