Speedy Suppers to Ease You Back Into the Routine

Speedy Suppers to Ease You Back Into the Routine

Weeknight meals, here we come! As we get back into the routine of early mornings and busy days, sitting down to a delicious, healthy, homemade meal becomes more appealing and beneficial than ever. But it can also seem more challenging than ever.

If you're feeling like you don't have the time to cook, we've got just the recipes you need. They're quicker and easier than you may think. Some contain shortcuts like pulling a can of tuna from the pantry for instant protein or using already-roasted chicken from the deli for a hearty meal that's a salad all-in-one. There's nothing wrong with a little real-food help from the grocery store during a busy week.

Plus, most of these recipes make delicious leftovers and double as packable lunches too. So get back into cooking as your fall routine starts with any of Stefano's speedy suppers from the list below.
