So what do you do when you've got a hungry family to feed and nothing planned in advance? Fear not! We've got you covered with these top 10, foolproof 30-minute dinner recipes!
When you're scrambling for a quick and tasty dinner, nothing pleases a hungry crowd like pasta. And this delicious Roasted Red Pepper Pasta is an easy meal-in-a-bowl the whole family will love. We've taken fusilli coated in a creamy (yet cream-free) pesto-like sauce of roasted red pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, Parmesan, almonds and olive oil, mixed it with fresh green peas and topped it with ricotta and basil. Who could resist?
Looking for an excuse to dig in? These scrumptious Italian Sloppy Joes might be a mess-of-a-meal (three napkins required), but they're also chock full of richly flavoured beef that's sandwiched between crisp garlic buns and topped with cheese (three kinds!) and basil. Yes, this Italian twist on the American classic is guaranteed to serve up (sloppy) smiles!
Kids and kids at heart will love these crunchy, golden-brown Parmesan Chicken Fingers coated in a Parmesan-panko crust. Easy and family friendly, they are served up with a trio of delectable dipping sauces: honey mustard, creamy Parmesan and sweet ketchup. Something to satisfy everyone's tastebuds.
