Wondering what to make for dinner? Need some inspiration? Here's our list of suggestions: dinner recipes that take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time. Yes, there will be pasta (or noodles!) and, yes, it will be delicious. We'll be here every Friday with five weeknight dinners, including recipes, shopping lists, and everything you need to streamline your week ahead.

We admit it, we're finally feeling—and eating like—fall. The new season starts this week and you're probably ready for everything cozy. (Everything pumpkin, too?) Join us as we make a rich baked pasta that's packed with vegetables, slot in a couple of one-pot meals that take less than 30 minutes start to finish, and bid goodbye to summer with a warming soup that lets us hold on to the flavors of the season for one more dinner.

What to Make

Late-summer vegetable soup WFD

Late-Summer Vegetable Soup

This dinner is chock-full of summer bounty, but it's also a cozy soup and a great way to enjoy fresh corn, green beans, zucchini, and diced tomatoes. There's plenty of orzo, everyone's favorite rice-shaped pasta, in each bowl. And a bonus for the cook, this soup only takes 35 minutes to make.

chicken cutlets with summer squash and feta WFD

Chicken Cutlets with Summer Squash and Feta

Here's a fast and easy one-pot dinner. You cook the chicken cutlets, then use the same pan for the summer squash and spinach. That's just one of the secrets of this 20-minute meal. It's a boldly flavored entrée thanks to high-impact ingredients like feta and capers, which also give this main a Mediterranean feel. 

baked pasta with cauliflower and swiss chard WFD

Baked Pasta with Cauliflower and Swiss Chard

What better way to handle hump day than with a comforting, meatless baked pasta? We're moving toward fall with this dinner that stars both cauliflower and Swiss chard, plus a rich, tangy sauce made with sour cream and Gruyère cheese that brings it all together.

broiled salmon with vegetables and scallion rice WFD

Broiled Salmon with Vegetables and Scallion Rice

Another night, another one-pan meal but this time we're turning on the broiler and the pan is a sheet pan. This 25-minute salmon dinner features peppers, asparagus, mushrooms, and scallions seasoned with soy sauce, a touch of brown sugar, and rice vinegar.

sausage and fontina pizza WFD

Sausage-and-Fontina Pizza

You made it to Friday! It's time to celebrate with pizza. No, not takeout, but this satisfying, veg-topped pie that's a step up from mozzarella and tomatoes. If you never tried fontina cheese on pizza before, we think you'll really like it.

Just remember to defrost the pizza dough ahead of time!
