With the cold weather setting in, we’re sure you’re looking not only for cozy dishes, but also relaxed meals that are a breeze to whip up. We heard your call! The five recipes below are comforting, hearty and absolutely simple.

Monday: Roasted Vegetable Soup

A cozy soup at the beginning of the week is always in good taste. This recipe is easy to throw together, as you simply roast your veggies in the oven for 20 minutes and then simmer them in broth with the other ingredients for just five minutes more. Dinner has never been this relaxed!

Tuesday: Pork Cutlets with Marsala Sauce

Want something fancy for dinner, but don’t particularly want to put in that extra effort? This pork dish, topped with a Marsala wine-based sauce and served with a side of veggies and mashed potatoes, requires few ingredients and not much time at all to make. It’s the perfect way to turn a regular weeknight meal into something special.

Wednesday: Cornflake-Crusted Fish with Herb Butter

Fish night may be difficult to attract the kids, but tonight will be fuss free because a) this recipe is so delicious and b) it’s absolutely easy to make. Your basic cornflake cereal from the pantry is what creates a golden, crunchy crust, ensuring that everyone devours their meal and cleans their plate. See? Easy-peasy!

Thursday: Honey-Mustard Chicken Legs

If you’re looking for a different way to serve up your weeknight chicken, then look no further than this simple recipe. The addictive sauce (oh yes, it will garner raves!) takes just a few minutes to prep and then cooks the rest of the way in the oven with the chicken and vegetables. There truly isn’t anything simpler!

Friday: Sausage and Eggplant Penne

Pasta is one of the most comforting dishes there is, and it’s quick and easy to put together, as well! This Friday, try your hand at this penne dish, tossed with cooked eggplant and sausage, and topped with dollops of herbed ricotta. It’ll become a comfort food fave for the cold months ahead!
