This is the only way to make manicotti, as far as I’m concerned. Thanks to this hack from Cooks Illustrated, instead of stuffing cheese filling into already cooked noodles, this manicotti uses softened no-bake lasagna sheets, into which you roll the filling. Once you make this Manicotti, with its creamy ricotta basil filling, and topped with marinara and gooey mozzarella, you too will be sold on this method. Serve this with steamed broccoli and your meal is complete!
If you like marinated artichokes, this one-dish fish meal is for you! The fish, cooked alongside zucchini, tomatoes and basil will make you nostalgic for the summer. Its worth the splurge for Sea Bass – there is nothing like its deep and creamy flavor. I like to serve this over quinoa or cous cous, to catch the delicious broth.
This dinner salad is packed with superfoods, beautiful colors and bold Asian flavors. While it’s not exactly a “one-dish wonder,” it is a salad and meal in one dish. Each time I make this, people ask me to pass on the recipe, so here it is! Based on a salad from Sweetgreen restaurant, this one brings together your veggies, starch and protein in one bite, each with its own special taste. Roasted marinated tofu and mushrooms are placed alongside chewy bright green kale and wild rice, and topped with beets, spiced sunflower seeds and a miso dressing that adds a deep salty Asian flair. Bring the leftovers to work with you for lunch - unlike lettuce, kale does not wilt!
This is one of those meals that just smells like home. Not only is it a really comforting meal, but it is an easy to make, one dish meal. You layer the potatoes and onions on the bottom of the dish and top them with the chicken. As they cook together, the onions caramelize into sweet goodness, while the potatoes get creamy and flavored by the chicken and spices. Serve this chicken with a simple green salad or my roasted string beans or carrots.
When I tell my 9 year-old son that we are having meatball minestrone soup for dinner, I get a fist pump… This soup is packed with Italian spices, veggies, noodles, and of course meatballs! This is a hearty “One Pot” meal for all the various eaters in your family – big and small. I like to serve this with crusty bread. Spread some pesto on the bread for an extra treat!
In my backyard growing up, we had this funny looking plant that used to pop up at he beginning of Spring each year, with big leaves and pretty pink stalks – rhubarb. I always know its Spring when I start to see rhubarb on the shelves. The combination of Rhubarb and Strawberries is a family favorite and special weeknight dessert, when I have time to throw it together.
