Weeknight Rescue//August 2022//Chicken Kebab Wraps/Spaghetti and Clams/Lentil Salad/No-Noodle Lasagna/Loaded Chicken Quesadillas

I’ve been in vacation mode, so have been a little late getting these meal plans out. Luckily, the line-up this week is on the easy/breezy side. I made the Spaghetti and Clams recently and added some fresh clams and extra lemon to the mix. It was a hit. And I hope you’ll try the Lemon Yogurt Icebox Cake while berries are still in season.

Grilled Chicken Kebab Wraps

A spiced yogurt marinade makes this chicken flavorful and fork-tender. Do these skewers on the grill and then tuck into warm flatbread with tomatoes, cucumbers and crunchy lettuce. You could skip the vegetables here and make Fattoush Salad to serve on the side and tuck into the wraps.

WEEKNIGHT SPAGHETTI AND CLAMS

This is sort of an heirloom recipe, since it was inspired by the pasta my grandfather made us growing up. It’s simple, affordable weeknight cooking that relies on canned clams and spaghetti. Add a green salad (with this dressing) and dinner is done!

FRENCH LENTIL SALAD WITH FENNEL & GOAT CHEESE

I’m crazy about this nourishing lentil salad. It’s a terrific one to batch cook on a weekend or evening and enjoy for a few days afterward. Pull it out when you need a simple vegetarian main or to serve as a side dish to fish or chicken. It’s also excellent packed up for work or school lunches.

Loaded Chicken Quesadillas with Avocado Salsa

These quesadillas are a good way to use up leftover chicken or repurpose a rotisserie chicken from the store. Pair quesadilla wedges with a plate of crunchy veggies and a simple guacamole (1 avocado smashed with a few teaspoons lime juice, a tablespoon of minced onion, and a pinch of salt). Swap in black beans for chicken to make these vegetarian.

Vegetarian No-Noodle Lasagna

This is on my “to-cook” list this week, since we’ve got heaps of veggies to work through. It’s made up of layers of tofu, zucchini, tomato sauce, and cheese and is always a hit in our house.

Lunchbox Cheese and Broccoli Calzones

Mini Cheese and Broccoli Calzones

With kids heading back to school, I’m pulling out an old favorite that is both fun and nourishing. Little calzones made with store-bought flatbread, broccoli, and cheese.

Lemon Yogurt Icebox Cake

This is brand-new to the blog and a dessert I plan to make with my niece this week. It’s a no-bake cake that involves just a few ingredients and very little hands-on-time. It’s so creamy and good!
