Weeknight Rescue // February // Week 7

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends. Here’s the menu for this week, which includes a few recipes to celebrate your loved ones. Bon appétit.

Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken with Tomatoes and Greens

A stupid simple recipe that you can make either in the slow cooker or the Instant Pot. It’s a “set it and forget it” kind of meal that is a longtime blog favorite. You can use virtually any type of leafy greens and serve it over pasta, any grain, or roasted cauliflower.

Cheesy Tex Mex Skillet Supper

This is always a crowd pleaser in our house. It’s a mess of Tex Mex flavors done in a single skillet. Serve with a crunchy salad or plate of cut up raw veggies.

Pasta with Simple Tomato Sauce

Simple Tomato Sauce for Pasta

A pasta sauce you can practically make with your eyes closed…that’s my kind of weeknight dinner. You can dress it up with crispy pancetta or Calabrian chiles, but it’s quite delicious straight up. This Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad on the side would be nice. If you’ve never made it, give it whirl. Even my kids are crazy about it.

Farro Cakes with Lemon Dill Yogurt Sauce

Farro, a hearty grain with Italian roots, is the foundation for these vegetarian patties that pair with a tangy lemon dill yogurt sauce. Double the recipe and refrigerate (or freeze) the extra patties for lunches or even brunch. Serve these with an arugula salad with this vinaigrette or a Kale Salad Kids Love. 

Cheese Soufflé for Two

If you’re looking for a last minute idea for Valentine’s Day at home, this may be the ticket. A classic cheese soufflé paired with a simple green salad, it’s a scrumptious meal to share with your sweetie.

Pretty Prosciutto and Spinach Egg Cups

Grab a muffin tin and three ingredients and you’ve got the makings for an easy breakfast or brunch.

Almost Flourless French Chocolate Cake

I’m crazy about this simple, decadent chocolate cake that is so rich, a little sliver goes a long way. Add a spoonful of crème frâiche whipped cream and dessert is done.
