Pita Grilled Cheese with Gouda and Honey

Traditional grilled cheese gets fancied up a bit with some nigella and sesame seeds and finished with a little honey for some of sweet-salty goodness. But if you wanted to scrap all that and just go for cheese in a pita? No one’s gonna be mad at a grilled cheese.

One-Pan Orecchiette Puttanesca

This is a sweetened version of puttanesca minus the anchovies, plus chickpeas and spices. It’s quick and super-practical to make because the pasta actually cooks in the sauce. Try it, and you may not feel the need to boil pasta ever again.

Garlicky Great Northern Beans and Broccoli Rabe Over Toast

These satisfying beans and greens are so easy. Serve over toast for a deliciously simple supper.

Sticky Korean Beef

This classic Korean flavour combination is out-of-this-world delicious. It’s traditionally made with really thinly sliced beef, but since that’s time consuming and a difficult technical skill to master, this version is simplified by using ground meat instead.

Beef And Italian Sausage Bolognese

When you're craving pasta but don't feel like waiting for a slow-simmered sauce, this speedy, shortcut Bolognese with beef, sausage and veggies is the answer!

One-Pan Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potato Wedges

Behold, the sheet-pan supper: It’s the easiest of the easy weeknight meal solutions. One pan, plus chicken thighs plus veggies plus seasoning, popped into the oven, means minimal effort for a fast, tasty payoff.

Chicken And Dumplings

It doesn’t get more comforting than a simmering pot of chicken and soft, fluffy dumplings. This one is made using an instant pot, so you've got a comforting classic ready to eat in no time at all.

Spaghetti with Instant Sausage Meatballs

Fresh sausages make instant, preseasoned meatballs with no mess; simply squeeze the meat out of its casing directly into the pan. The sausage adds flavour as it simmers, creating a delicious sauce that’s done in about as much time as it takes to cook dry pasta.

Lemony Pasta Primavera

When the pasta and sauce are cooked together in one pan (yes, the pasta goes in uncooked!), the resulting dish isn’t just fast and easy—it’s also incredibly creamy and luxurious. As the starch cooks out of the pasta, it mixes with the water (and other yummy ingredients) to create a sauce that clings to every strand. You’re going to wonder where this method has been all your life.
