30 Spring Dinners to Make Every Night in April
Spring has officially sprung—and it's about damn time. Although we're still waiting for the weather to catch up, we're gearing up for warmer days ahead with meals that star allllll the seasonal produce. Think asparagus, peas, radishes, spinach, mushrooms and beyond. To get you in the spirit, here are 30 dinners to whip up every night in April, from goat cheese pasta with spinach and artichokes to lemon butter veggies and sausage.
April 4: Chicken and Snap Pea Stir-Fry
This 20-minute main never gets old. (Especially because it takes less time to prepare than if you ordered delivery from your favorite takeout spot.)
April 7: Instant Pot Spaghetti with Goat Cheese, Mint and Peas
Cooking pasta in the pressure cooker is a game-changer. Drop the dry noodles in with the aromatics for flavor, then quick-release the pressure once they’re cooked, so they stay al dente.
April 8: Spinach with Three-Cheese Stuffed Shells
Want to use frozen spinach? No problem. Just thaw and drain it, stir it into the ricotta stuffing and top it all off with Gouda and peppery tomato sauce.
April 13: Greens Mac and Cheese
The recipe calls for baby spinach and broccolini, but feel free to use any fresh (or frozen!) greens that you have on hand.
April 15: Salmon Noodle Bowls with Chili-Yuzu Relish and Pickled Radishes
Make the three-ingredient pickled radishes, soy-ginger dressing and relish in advance, so all you have to do at meal time is assemble and serve.
