Get your oversized sweaters and stretchy pants out of storage–it’s officially comfort food season! From now until spring, we’ll be cooking up hearty stews, roasting veggies and baking until even our mixers are tired, and we want you to do the same! But comfort food doesn’t mean you need to slave away in the kitchen all day. These five dinners are quick enough for a weeknight but cozy enough for a relaxing evening by the fire. Get ready to bundle up!

A bubbly, warm, saucy Italian dish on a cold, winter night? Now that’s amore! Save the caprese salads and basil pesto for the summer–this winter, we want the hearty baked dishes, crunchy baguettes and creamy desserts that Italy is known for. So take your pick at a cheesy, sausage-laden pizza bread, a rich and smoky sauteed chicken or a creamy, gooey, this-is-what-dreams-are-made-of baked pasta dish. Finish it off with a riff on Tiramisu and you’ve got yourself an Italian grandmother’s hug for your taste buds.
Soups, stews, casseroles and pasta bakes; we just can’t get enough of fall comfort foods. But here’s a spin we haven’t explored yet: adding some sweetness and spice to otherwise hearty and rich dishes. A dash of teriyaki sauce, a sprinkling of chile pepper or even a chopped apple can add a ton of flavor and personality to a dish that will keep your family on their toes. Try making these dishes this week to spice (and sweeten!) up dinner time:
