7 Easy Weeknight Dinners That Are a Nice Break from the Usual
On those days when you feel like you’ve been through the wringer, the last thing you want to do is come home and cook up a gourmet meal—but the last thing your kids want is yet another plate of spaghetti (fine, the last thing they need). While there’s absolutely no shame in the noodle game, you should consider adding a few alternatives into your dinner rotation. Here, seven easy weeknight recipes the kids will love.
20-MINUTE SHRIMP SCAMPI ZOODLES
Enlist the kiddos as sous chefs and let them spiralize the zucchini themselves.
30-Minute Creamy Chicken, Corn and Tomato Skillet
One-skillet wonders are the superheroes of weekday dinners.
Cheater’s Vegetarian Pizza With Zucchini and Bell Peppers
No kid has ever turned down pizza (even if it was overloaded with healthy veggies).
15-Minute Skillet Pepper Steak
A stir-fry go-to that’s as pretty as it is delicious.
Slow-Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala Meatballs
Technically this recipe takes six hours. But it spends five hours and 50 minutes in the slow cooker, so really, it’s a ten-minute effort with a day’s worth of flavor.
Cacio e Pepe Cauliflower
It’s basically an uber-fancy mac and cheese. They won’t even miss the macaroni (if you don’t tell them).
Honey-Lime Chicken and Veggies in Foil
No mess, no stress.
