1. Homemade Spaghetti and Meatballs

The pasta cooks in the sauce, which is a brilliant way to infuse it with tomatoey flavor and skip washing that pasta pot. The recipe includes instructions for making the meatballs (which yes, you can do in fifteen minutes!) but there's no shame in buying frozen meatballs and taking a shortcut. Get the recipe here.

7. Soy Sauce Noodles with Carrots and Mushrooms


This is a vegetarian dish, but you could top it with some store-bought rotisserie chicken if you're looking for some protein. Get the recipe here.

To pack in a little more flavor, substitute chicken broth for the water. Here's the recipe.

18. Tomato Jam Grilled Cheese


The tomato jam (which you can probably find at the grocery store) takes the classic weeknight grilled cheese up a notch. Get the recipe here, and learn how to make six grilled cheese sandwiches at once here.
