Happy weekend everyone. Hope you are enjoying some downtime. Here’s what’s on tap for Weeknight Rescue. As always, the shopping list is at the bottom of the page. 

 

CHEESY BAKED PUMPKIN PASTA WITH KALE AND BACON 

New to the blog and perfect for pumpkin season. I’ve made this for two different cooking classes already and it’s been a big hit both times. Though it may look decadent, I’ve packed over 6 cups of veggies in there. Bon appetite!

WARM SPINACH SALAD WITH SOFT EGGS AND PROSCIUTTO CHIPS

An oldie but a goodie. I’ve been making this salad since I was in my 20s and love it to this day. Gently cooked spinach with a balsamic splash, crispy bacon, and a soft egg are enough to make a light supper. Serve with a crusty baguette for soaking up that oozy yolk. 

UMAMI CHICKEN

“Umami” because this chicken is such a flavor bomb. It’s chicken done adobo style that you can have bubbling on the stove in a matter of minutes. I always serve it with a side of brown rice and either stir-fried veggies or bok choy. If you’re pressed for time, pick up a package of heat and serve brown rice from the freezer section of the market. 


JUICEBOX APPLESAUCE

Big pots of applesauce are a fall staple around here. This recipe honestly takes minutes to get bubbling on the stove and is handy for breakfast, snacks, lunch boxes, or dessert. I often serve it warm with a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt on the side. You might also like this Instant Pot Applesauce recipe, too.

LIGHTER ARTICHOKE CAULIFLOWER DIP WITH FLATBREAD CRISPS

When it comes to game day, I’m all about the good eats. This cheesy dip certainly qualifies. It’s good for a crowd and can be served with toasted flatbread, pita chips, or crunchy vegetables.
