7 Weeknight Dinners That Will Rock Your Socks Off


By Cooking Panda

1. 20 Minute Thai Basil Beef and Lemongrass Rice Bowls

Got some extra ground meat and 20 minutes? Try this insanely fresh and warming dish that cooks up in a flash.

2. Brown Butter Scallops with Parmesan Risotto

Looking for something beyond quick? Go restaurant-status fancy with this deceptively simple meal. If you want to do even less work, make your risotto in a rice cooker like this. Seriously!

3. 30 Minute Sesame Mango Chicken Teriyaki

Craving a simple, sweet and savory dish to whip up that is more or less healthy? Give this a try. We bet it would be great with green beans and/or bell peppers too.

4. Lightened-Up Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

This might be The. Best. Recipe. Ever. Whether you are craving some Fettuccine Alfredo but don’t want something quite as heavy, or if you’ve been meaning to make some spaghetti squash but don’t know where to start, or if you simply need a delicious dinner, we love this recipe. Seriously. Try it.

5. Meatball Bake

This is a winning recipe, especially if you have frozen or leftover meatballs lying around. (If you don’t, they are really simple to make – check out this recipe. Feel free to use just ground beef if you don’t have veal and pork lying around.) Throw it all together with just a few ingredients for some classic comfort food.

6. Cold Peanut Sesame Noodles with Chicken

Cold noodles, hot chicken and fresh cucumbers. Yum!

7. Pasta with Yogurt and Caramelized Onions

You can and absolutely should use Greek yogurt as the base of your pasta sauce.
