7 Quick Dinners To Make This Week

1. 30-Minute Lasagna With Sausage And Mushrooms

What’s great about this recipe is its shortcut ingredients: pre-sliced mushrooms, Italian seasoning blend, no-cook noodles, grated cheese, and a pre-made marinara sauce. But because you cook up a quick layer of onions, mushrooms, meat, garlic and deglaze all that with wine, it still has tons of delicious flavor. Get the recipe.

2. Easy Thai Fish Soup

If you’re not up for shopping for the specialty ingredients in here — lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves — just substitute lemon and lime zest and this will still be awesome. If you don’t like cilantro, sub parsley. Get the recipe.

3. Roast Chicken and Parsnips

PARSNIPS RULE. Get the recipe.

4. Spinach Pasta Carbonara

Indulgent and delicious but works in some greens, too. Get the recipe.

5. Apple, Cheddar, Squash Soup.

I feel like I should be recommending this other soup — a Carrot, Mushroom, and Barley Stew — because it has a lot of ingredients you’ll have leftover if you make other recipes on this list. But too bad, because I just really love this butternut squash situation. Get the recipe.

6. Braised Broccoli with Orange and Parmesan Recipe and a Perfect Baked Potato


Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks loves this broccoli recipe from Andrew Weil’s cookbook True Food. To make it a meal, serve it with bowl of healthy brown rice or a baked potato.

7. Meatloaf Muffins with Barbecue Sauce

Appealing comfort food done fast, with no frills — thank you, Rachael Ray. Get the recipe.
