Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowl:

Pancetta and Tomato Pasta:
Salty nibs of pancetta are about to upgrade Italian night in a major way. You have the Italian chef Giada De Laurentiis to thank for this saucy dish.
Paleo, Air-Fried Chicken Tenders:
One bite of these chicken tenders, and you'll become an air-fryer convert. They're as good as the real thing and have a unique crunchiness due to the almond flour crust.
Grab your protein, vegetables, and starch and place them in SEALED mason jars for a seriously easy-to-make plate that cooks as you clean.
Cape Cod Paella:
You may be ready to face-dive into the pot after seeing this spiced rice, savory seafood, and diced chicken.
Oven Baked Falafel:
Get the same great taste of the fried falafel minus the extra fat. We recommend whipping up a big batch and freezing some for later.
Kimchi Tofu Ramen:
Your bowl of ramen will never be the same after adding the fermented cabbage for extra flavor and spice.
Bring the “art” to any dinner party by assembling these beautiful artichokes that can double as a table centerpiece. We doubt they’ll last that long, though.
Mason Jar Lasagna:
Lasagna just became a lot easier to transport. Yes, it’s stuffed in a mason jar, but it still packs in all of the same cheesy, tomato-sauce goodness.
Gnocchi Mac and Cheese:
Pillowy gnocchi drenched in a cheesy sauce will inspire you to go for seconds and thirds of this recipe.
Beef Chili Skillet Lasagna:
The days of using multiple sauté AND roasting pans are over. Just whip up this overloaded beef recipe and slip in a couple of lasagna sheets for a one-pan meal.
One Pot Cheesy Pumpkin Pecan Pasta:
Your pumpkin obsession is about to get a lot more… interesting. Pumpkin puree and cream cheese just works when simmered slow in vegetable broth and surrounded by pasta.
Herbed Quinoa Bowls:
This colorful medley of roasted vegetables makes eating healthfully look good. The bed of fluffy quinoa cooked in pesto doesn't hurt either.
Creamy Egg and Bacon Carbonara:
We know what you’re thinking; yes, you can absolutely eat it for leftovers in the morning. Pan fried bits, an oozing poached egg, and noodles will always be a good idea.
Cast-Iron Skillet Steak:
If you’ve got a hankering for a juicy piece of steak, you’re going to want to pull out your grandmother’s cast iron for this no-fail technique. Hint: The key is an extremely hot pan for the perfect sear each time.
3-Ingredient Pork Cutlets:
If you’ve never used Dijon mustard on anything more than a sandwich, you are really missing out, especially when it comes to lightly breaded, pan-fried pork cutlets and sliced apples.
Baked Almond Cod:
These almond-covered cod filets pack in tons of texture and flavor, plus are a great source of heart-healthy protein.
Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas:
Transport yourself to the Lone Star state by making these succulent and spicy fajitas. The veggies and shrimp are roasted on a sheet pan, then the fajitas are served up with plenty of fixings.
