Easy Weeknight 30-Minute Meals
Here are delicious and simple weeknight dinners to be thankful for: steak, chicken and -- Rachael's fave, of course! -- pasta.
Sliced Steak BLTs
Rach says: "Try chimichurri, the herby condiment of choice in Argentina, on chicken or fish as well as steak." Rach recommends topping this steak sammie with jalapeño chimichurri.

Merguez, a spicy sausage, and eggplant add tons of flavor to this hearty red beans and rice-based dinner.
Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Cutlets with Sweet & Salty Stuffing
Fancy up your go-to chicken cutlets with prosciutto and stuffing. Tip: Arugula and tomato wedges or another simple salad makes a nice side.
Creamy Dijon-Terragon Chicken
Creamy dijon and terrago sauce packs serious flavor. Balance out the dish by pairing it with rice pilaf.
Fennel & Tarragon Penne alla Vodka
Toss fennel and tarragon on top of this classic Italian pasta dish.

Remember the shells with cheese sauce you ate as a kid? Here's Rach's grown up version! Salty cheese, olives and anchovies pump up this pasta to a whole new level.
Spinach Tagliatelle with Ham-Mushroom Sauce
Here's a pasta sauce you'll make over and over again. After all, who can resist a good ham and mushroom topper?
