Thinking you'll just pick up a pizza on the way home from work tomorrow? Planning on another frozen dinner in the microwave? Sick of caving into the kids' demands for mac and cheese again? Well, stop and reconsider, because making a delicious dinner doesn't have to be a big to-do. Here are a few easy dishes that are impressive, nutritious and delicious - yet shockingly simple to prepare!
1. Quiche. It may sound fancy, but this classic French dish is actually surprisingly simple to make. And it's not just for breakfast, either - it tastes great at any time of day and heats up excellently for yummy leftovers all week long. Buy a frozen pie crust at your local grocer to make prep work a whole lot easier. Then layer any kind of veggies, meats and other goodies at the bottom of the pie shell - we recommend tomatoes, sweet onions and parboiled broccoli, along with plenty of cheddar cheese and a few chunks of bleu for bite. Whip up some eggs and cream and pour over the top, then pop in the oven for about an hour. Voila! Dinner is served!
2. Pot roast. This delicious comfort food is a classic down-home dish that most of us remember from Sunday night dinner at Grandma's, and it's easy to replicate yourself. In fact, all you really need is a nice chunk of inexpensive beef or pork, preferably still on the bone. Sear it on all sides in a dutch oven, add potatoes, carrots and onions, cover in broth and let simmer all day long. By the time dinner rolls around, it'll be tender and savory. Have to run off to work? Throw everything in a crock pot before you leave, and it'll be waiting for you when you get home. What could be better than that?
3. Home-made pizza. Store-bought, pre-baked pizza crust really makes this family favorite a cinch to prepare. And since you're not ordering from the local greasy pizza joint, you can even make this college staple into a healthy, kid-friendly meal. Use a rich tomato sauce as a base, sprinkle on just a handful of mozzarella and add tons of veggies and herbs. Customize it however you prefer - you can even make half meat-free for any vegetarians in the family! Serve alongside an arugula salad for a diet-friendly dinner that feels just a tad sinful.
4. Baked ziti. Everybody loves pasta, from your kids to your granddad. But if you want to turn pasta into a real meal, you can't beat a delicious baked ziti! Easier than lasagna but heartier than ravioli or spaghetti, baked ziti is the perfect meal for a family get-together (or a night alone). Since you can make as much or as little of it as you want, it can work for just about any occasion. Plus, the leftovers reheat beautifully in the microwave for quick dinners all week long. Watching your weight? Go easy on the ricotta and mozzarella and add more veggies. Squash, zucchini, tomatoes, and eggplant work beautifully!
