Homemade zucchini pinwheel ravioli stuffed with ricotta, feta, and parmesan bakes up in a sauce of roasted multicolored cherry tomatoes. Be sure to serve this one to dinner guests—it’s pretty as a picture, and it’s guaranteed to impress.
Oh, how we love sheet-pan dinners like this broiled cod version with roasted veggies. Taking the time to marinate the fish in a simple homemade miso sauce will make the flavor pop in the oven. Stir up some extra dressing, and drizzle it over your veggies too.
Carb-free pizza? Done and done. This recipe for a cauliflower-crust pizza can be baked as one large pizza or two individual pies. Garnish with portobello mushrooms and asparagus, and top with a cashew Alfredo.
Creamy Zucchini Noodles
We needed a zoodle recipe, and this one just so happens to be mouthwatering. It’s the sauce that makes it unique: Rather than the creaminess coming from cashews, it’s from white lentils and is balanced out with some acidity from lemon juice. Finish with some cheesy sunflowers.
Stuffed Fontina Portobello Skillet
Mushrooms just so happen to be a filling vegetable, and when stuffed with goodness like fontina and spinach, we’re very apt to call it “dinner.” For this knockout dish, all you need is a few minutes and a skillet, so it’s a go-to for busy weeknights.
