Most of the recipes below take 45 minutes or less of active prep work and cooking time (for example, marinading overnight wouldn’t count as active cooking time). They either use simple ingredients, simple methods, inexpensive foods, can be prepared fast, or some combination of the qualities you look for in a good weeknight recipe. I hope it helps you plan your family’s meals!
