93 Quick and Easy Dinner Recipes to Make Any Night of the Week
There's a time and a place for almost every recipe, and if that time is limited, you're in the right place. Every one of the 93 (yes, 93!) quick dinner recipes we've pulled together in this collection can be made in 45 minutes or less—many of them come together even faster.
Our recipes run the gamut, so you'll find familiar favorites like spaghetti and meatballs, mac and cheese, and stir-fries, as well as creative takes, like a North African beef stew and pasta with butternut squash and herby, garlicky, creamy Boursin cheese. While many of these dishes do rely on store-bought shortcuts (think rotisserie chicken, refrigerated pesto sauce, pre-made gnocchi, and canned or boxed chicken broth), the vast majority of them draw on raw, everyday ingredients.
Chicken cutlets, shrimp, ground meat, vegetables you can find in most any supermarket, and pasta—when combined wisely, with powerful flavor boosts like ginger, chiles in adobo, and parmesan cheese, they're the building blocks for assembling a delicious meal in a flash.
