Sitting down to enjoy dinner as a family on a regular basis can be tough today. Between work, extracurricular activities, and shuttling the kids around, our main concern with dinner is that it’s fast and at least somewhat nutritious. Every once in a while, it’s nice to step it up and create a wholesome meal that is both comforting and nostalgic — like Grandma used to serve. Look to these Sunday dinner recipes to make it happen.

1. Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Dinner: This mustard-glazed chicken comes together in 35 minutes. The sheet pan is loaded with potatoes and veggies, so it’s a complete meal in one. (via Brit + Co)

2. Instant Pot Loaded Baked Potato Soup: This simple pressure cooker soup has all the flavors you love in an all-dressed jacket potato but skips the dairy. Potatoes, cashews, and chicken stock make the creamy, broth base. (via Brit + Co)

3. Slow-Cooker Creamy Mushroom Stroganoff: The twirl of egg noodles coated in creamy mushroom sauce. The tender bite of slow-cooked chicken… sigh. This modernized stroganoff recipe has it all. It’s mostly cooked hands-off so you can really relax until dinner’s ready. (via Brit + Co)

4. Creamy Chicken Quinoa Broccoli Casserole: Protein lovers will obsess over the quintuple whammy of chicken, quinoa, milk, cheese, and bacon in this casserole. Add a little broccoli for extra fiber and vitamins, and you have an indulgent dish that doesn’t skimp on nutrition either. (via Brit + Co)

5. One-Pot Roasted Tomato Soup: Roasted tomatoes add an extra layer of flavor to your soup, making it taste like it cooked for hours when really, this recipe comes together in less than an hour. Serve it with a grilled cheese. (via Brit + Co)

6. Slow-Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup: Grandma might not be around to fix you a bowl of her famous soup, but at least you have a slow cooker, which is sometimes the next best thing. Add your ingredients and go about your business as your house fills with a heavenly smell that will beckon you to fill your bowl a few hours later. (via Brit + Co)

7. King Ranch Casserole: Even if you’re eating on your own, you deserve to treat yourself, like with a mini casserole dish filled with cheesy, slightly spicy king ranch chicken. (via Brit +Co)

8. Instant Pot Tuscan White Bean Soup: Eat the rainbow with a pot of soup that has colorful veggies, fiber-rich white beans, and lots of spicy sausage for good measure. (via Brit + Co)

9. Easy Vegan Baked Ziti: Soaking your pasta eliminates the need to boil it when making baked pasta dishes. That means this four-ingredient vegan baked ziti is a one-pot meal, so you can spend your post-dinner bliss actually relaxing, not up to your elbows in dishes. (via Brit + Co)

10. Vegan Portuguese Kale Soup: Kale is cooked until meltingly tender in this recipe. It gives each spoonful a silky, luscious bite. Its earthiness is brightened up by hot sauce, red pepper flakes, and garlic. (via Brit + Co)

11. Comforting Pancetta Pasta: Inspired by the classic Roman dish pasta all’Amatriciana, tangles of spaghetti are tossed with crisped up pancetta and plenty of Pecorino to give this recipe a salty, meaty bite. Sweet tomatoes round out the dish, and red pepper adds a slight kick that will have you reaching for your wine glass. (via Brit + Co)

12. Instant Pot Indian Butter Chicken: Succulent chicken that tastes like it has been cooked for hours can be whipped up in minutes in the Instant Pot. Serve it over fluffy basmati rice, which will soak up the ghee-enriched spiced tomato sauce. (via The Essential Indian Instant Pot Cookbook; photo via Brittany Griffin / Brit + Co)

13. Instant Pot Beef Stew: If you tend to pack your weekends with activity (or if Sunday is usually your “recovery” day), you might not have a few hours set aside for cooking. Instead, break out your Instant Pot to prepare a beef stew that’s ready in less than an hour, with a rich broth that will revive you in time for the week ahead. (via Brit + Co)

14. Spaghetti Aglio e Olio: A surefire way to guarantee that a simple meal of pasta with olive oil and garlic tastes worthy of the weekend is adding in as much fresh parsley as you can handle. Melting a couple of anchovy fillets in the oil might weird you out at first but the savory punch it adds to this dish is undeniable. (via Where Cooking Begins; photo via Gentl and Hyers)
