Getting supper on the table during the week can be a feat even in the best of times. Making that happen when you are juggling a busy schedule can seem almost impossible. To avoid eating a bowl of cereal, ordering takeout, or grazing through the pantry, here are 12 quick dinner ideas for any night of the week.
1. Shrimp, Leek, and Spinach Pasta
While the pasta cooks, sauté the leeks and shrimp in butter. The spinach will wilt readily when combined with the warm pasta, and a little lemon zest adds fresh flavor to the light cream sauce. The children get a “macaroni and cheese”-like dinner, which has two vegetables stirred in. And the adults get a delicious and easy meal—in only 20 minutes.
