Throw your pot pie ingredients into a single saucepan and let the stove do the work.
8. Grilled Steak with Greek Corn Salad
Cube steaks are inexpensive, and they’re a great way to make midweek steak dinners doable.
A cube steak needs little more than salt and pepper and a quick spin on the grill before it’s ready to be served alongside grilled corn and vinaigrette-coated veggies.
9. Tex-Mex Meatballs
Add ’em to hero rolls or eat them over rice for a full meal. Kick up the Italian favorite with chipotle and spices.
10. Tortellini in Brodo
It’s easier than you think to make a vegetable-filled bone broth. A smoked pork chop adds tons of flavor to this soup, and a Parmesan rind gives it extra richness.
11. Spaghetti Bolognese
Spaghetti Bolognese is super easy and a true Italian classic with a meaty, chilli sauce. This recipe comes courtesy of BBC Good Food user Andrew Balmer.
12. Sensational Summer Salmon Burgers
Summer’s in full swing — insert woman dancing emoji here — meaning ’tis the season for America’s number one, quintessential handheld delight: the burger. This time, we’re working with salmon, not beef. But here’s some realness: We’re often chasing AC during this season, because the heat can be suffocating.
For those times when standing over a grill seems like torture, here’s an indoor burger that can be made in less than 20 minutes.
13. Shrimp and Kale Pitas
Fill pitas with a mixture of shrimp, kale and chickpeas for a simple hand-held dinner.
14. Cheeseburger Tacos
Everyones two greatest loves.
15. Ginger Pork and Cucumber Salad
Freshen up this spicy pork bowl with fresh mint and cilantro.
16. Shrimp, Leek, and Spinach Pasta
One that’s got vegetables and protein? Our recipe for Shrimp, Leek, and Spinach Pasta is the answer. While the pasta cooks, sauté the leaks and shrimp in butter.
The spinach will wilt naturally when combined with the warm pasta, and a bit of lemon zest adds fresh flavor to the light cream sauce.
17. Baked Pecorino Chicken
A crunchy coating of grated pecorino, bread crumbs, and butter breathes new life into boneless, skinless, chicken breasts. This technique might look time-intensive, but in reality, it couldn’t be easier: Rather than breading each individual piece of meat, you sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the chicken, placed side-by-side in a baking dish. And the best part?
While the chicken cooks in the oven, you’ll have more than enough time to whip up a healthful and colorful side of sautéed Swiss chard, or whatever leafy green or other vegetable your family loves.
18. Old Bay Shrimp
Whether you’re throwing these Old Bay seasoned shrimp onto salads or eating them straight, they taste like pure summer.
19. Honey-Ginger Cedar Plank Salmon
This grilled salmon is a total triple threat: sweet, spicy and earthy.
20. Creamy Pumkin Pasta Sauce
One time, Zac’s family graciously invited my brother and I to Thanksgiving at their house in California, and I brought chocolate pumpkin cheesecake bars.
They were good, but the overwhelming reaction was: they probably would have been better as regular cheesecake bars. That was the last time I attempted a pumpkin recipe.
21. Easy-Peasy Shrimp Ziti
Fresh peas add a pop of color to this creamy pasta dish.
22. Steak Salad
Don’t have a grill? That’s ok – I don’t have one either. You can still make perfectly cooked steak in a grill pan – and it cooks in under 10 minutes.
I promise, it is easier than you might think, and I will walk you through step by step.
23. Pasta With Turkey and Broccoli
This dish might taste like those slow-cooked Italian pastas with vegetables and sausage. But our take is ready in 20 minutes, and uses ground turkey, a leaner, healthier alternative to sausage or beef that also cooks up quickly. You’ll brown the meat in one pan, but boil the pasta and the broccoli together.
Chopped garlic and crushed red pepper gives the pasta a bit of a zip; for picky eaters, hold the red pepper and let everybody season their own plate as they sprinkle on the Parmesan.
24. Sheet Pan Chickpea Chicken
You’re just five ingredients away from this one-pan smoky, Spanish-inspired dinner.
25. Summer Farro Salad with Grilled Steak
Topped with a colorful veggie medley, this steak and grains kale salad checks all the healthy boxes.
26. One Pot Pasta Primavera
Now, maybe you all know already that I’m not a huge fan of veggies. But when they’re tossed in creamy Fettucine? I’m down with that.
27. Roasted Garlic, Goat Cheese, and Tomato Pasta
I am convinced that roasted garlic makes everything better. Roasted garlic is one of those things that’s easy to make a lot of. I always make a whole head of roasted garlic at a time, and then add it to various recipes a few cloves at a time. Recently, I whipped up a quick Roasted Garlic, Goat Cheese, and Tomato Pasta.
When I make pasta dishes I like to use a few simple fresh ingredients. I don’t want to over complicated things, so I focused on finding the best ways to use roasted garlic, fresh cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and goat cheese.
The result was a creamy pasta dish bursting with flavor that took just over 30 minutes to prepare.
28. Chickpea and vegetable stir fry
I try to eat legumes at least 3 times a week and chickpeas are my favorite one. Although I could live on hummus or falafel, I’m always trying new recipes and one day I tried to use them instead of the rice or noodles I usually used to make my stir-fry recipes and this amazing dish came to life!
29. Turkey Burger
As juicy as the real thing.
30. Burrito Bowls
I finally made a burrito bowl at home. Well, I guess it’s more of a burrito plate. But still. Burrito bowl, burrito plate – I’m in love.
With fresh veggies and just 10 min prep with a creamy chipotle drizzle, what’s not to love?
