Cheeseburger Pasta Pot

Beasts

If you grew up in middle America in the 80’s or 90’s (maybe prior; not sure when it was launched)You probably had Hamburger Helper at least a few times. It was a regular at my house growing up. It was cheap, fast, easy, and foolproof. Enough so that it was one of the first things I started making for myself as an older kiddo. This recipe is free from those nasty additives, but full of the yumm. (and even has some veggies, added! Look at me mom!)

Turkey Cutlets with Quinoa Pilaf

Poultry

Are you looking for a simple recipe that is a complete meal? This combination of turkey cutlets with quinoa will do the trick! Quinoa makes a delicious pilaf and pairs perfectly with flavorful turkey cutlets. Also known as paillards—are pounded or thinly sliced cuts of turkey breast. The fact that the thin pieces of meat cook quickly is one of the biggest advantages. Sometimes Turkey Cutlets can be tough to find; so feel free to sub out for pounded chicken breast or pork cutlets for veal cutlets. Of course, you can always pick up a turkey breast, and slice it into cutlets yourself.

NAG-free Macaroni and Cheese Royale

Meatless

Given that we have several smaller children, this recipe is on the menu almost once a week (which is killer for me, lover of variety, but hey, they eat it.) Every once in awhile, we will have guests, or eat mac-n-cheese elsewhere, and the kiddos are always confused about it being different.

NAG-less Marsala Chicken

Poultry

Juicy pan-fried chicken is smothered in a marsala cream sauce. This is one of those classic Italian dishes that you see on restaurant menus everywhere but probably rarely attempt making on your own at home. Always a crowd pleaser, Chicken Marsala is a classic dish that is actually quite simple to make and can be ready to eat in under 30 minutes.

While this dumplings recipe will take about three hours to cook, everything comes together in a single Dutch oven, meaning this one-pot meal will require little clean-up afterwards.

Caprese Eggplant Pizza

Meatless

Don’t wanna bother with Fathead dough? Try these alternative mini personal pizzas instead! These eggplant pizzas are really easy to make, you simply slice the eggplant and roast or grill the slices until the eggplant just starts to turn tender, top it, and then bake them until the cheese gets all melty. Mmmm, I’m drooling. Don’t skip sweating the eggplant. The salt removes excess moisture; you will see beads of moisture sweating from the eggplant as it sits. … Since the eggplant has less moisture in it, it is able to soak up the oils used when cooking. The result is a more tender, less bitter, and tastier eggplant.
