Skip the restaurant crowds! Kick off the weekend with a Friday night dinner your family will love and that still lets you take it easy in the kitchen.
What’s your Friday night vibe? Ours is low-key. And we like it that way!
We sometimes get pizza on Friday night (or make our own) but more often, we try to cook something simple ourselves.
Our favorite Friday recipes are EASY, they’re FUN, they include a veggie or two, and they don’t make loads of dishes. Here are some we love:
Healthy Pasta Dinners
Take advantage of pasta’s quick cooking time and endless flavor possibilities. Add seasonal veggies, protein, and all types of cheese. And choose whole wheat pasta for the best nutrition!
Healthy Nachos for Dinner
Nachos are fast, they’re guaranteed to please a crowd, and you can pile on nutritious veggies to boot! Dig in to multi-layered goodness with these healthy nacho recipes.
Little sandwiches pack big flavor and they’re tons of fun for a Friday night dinner. Serve these simple sliders with a green salad on the side.
What kid can say no to gooey cheese and loads of flavorful toppings sandwiched in between two crisp chewy tortillas? Quesadillas come together quickly and require minimal cleanup.
Quick Chicken Dinners
Chicken to the rescue again! Get a high-protein dinner on the table in under 30 minutes of hands-on time with these healthy chicken recipes.
