Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of July 7th
We've served up 5 quick and delicious weeknight meals, complete with side suggestions and a special weekly bonus recipe.
- 1This versatile pasta pairs with any grilled vegetable, so use what you have on hand or what you picked up at the farmers market over the weekend. Grill up the veggies, cook the tortelloni according to the package instructions, and your dinner is ready to go!
- 2Can you believe these crunchy and crispy fish sticks can be baked and on your table for dinner in just 25 minutes? Believe it! These fish sticks are baked, not fried, and will be a new family favorite. Plus, the pineapple ketchup is a great summer spin on dipping sauce.
- 3Cook up as many pizzas as you want tonight, and freeze the rest. This recipe calls for making your own ricotta cheese, which is easy to do in the microwave, but use store-bought if you're short on time. These pizzas are a fun and easy weeknight meal.
- 4We used mezze penne, a smaller version of regular penne, but you can use any short pasta you like. The "lettuce" in this BLT is actually tender baby spinach. You could also substitute peppery arugula or even baby kale. Make this easy pasta recipe and have dinner on the table in 25 minutes!
Smoked paprika comes from a centuries-old tradition in which chile peppers are slowly dried over low-burning fires of Spanish oak and then ground into powder. In the slow cooker, this earthy, aromatic spice adds outdoor smoked barbecue flavor.
SOur version of the Creamsicle is silky, with distinct peachy flavor. It's a not-too-sweet pop that grown-ups will love but that's playful enough for all ages.
