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.

The busy season has begun—or is this the extra-busy season? While we are all juggling more than usual, it's important to be well-nourished. That's why we're sharing comforting-but-quick dinner recipes this week. Try our plant-based Monday meal that comes together in just 30 minutes, or our crowd-pleasing soup on Tuesday—we're firm believers that soup can be dinner if it's hearty and delicious enough. Come Friday, cut yourself some slack and indulge in the coziest of dinners, an updated tuna-noodle casserole. It takes longer than the other meals this week, but most of the time is hands-off cooking. You can relax or catch up on chores while your dinner casserole bakes.

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.

one-pot turkey and rice with coconut milk recipe WFD

One-Pot Turkey and Rice with Coconut Milk, Lime, and Fish Sauce

Forget Thanksgiving, this is not that turkey. It's ground meat cooked with rice and it reaches flavor-filled new heights with Thai accents of lime juice, coconut milk, ginger, and garlic. It's a one-pot wonder that takes less than an hour, and can be made ahead and reheated—did we mention how good it tastes?

chicken thigh piccata with broccoli rabe recipe WFD

Chicken-Thigh Piccata with Broccoli Rabe

Need a quick dinner on a busy Thursday night? Try our take on the Italian-American classic, chicken piccata, that uses chicken thighs instead of the usual chicken breasts. Thighs are more flavorful and less expensive, so what's not to love? Ready in 25 minutes, this entrée is wonderful over polenta, but rice, orzo, or crusty bread all work well, too. 

tuna-noodle casserole with cauliflower recipe WFD

Tuna-Noodle Casserole with Cauliflower

Call it comfort-food Friday—actually, you'll call it delicious after just one bite of our upgrade on this classic casserole. All the irresistible, creamy, comforting textures are there, but we snuck in cauliflower—and it's a stellar addition.
