What family doesn’t like pasta and meatballs? Frozen angus beef meatballs beat making home-made on a busy night. Streamline the cooking time by making the tomato sauce while the meatballs cook in the oven.
Quick Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Meatballs
Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheesy Flatbread
Roasting tomatoes is a perfect use for over-ripe tomatoes that are too mushy to use any other way. You can use roasted tomatoes in a sandwich, in a pasta dish, or as here, in a home-made tomato soup. You can use smoked paprika in this soup, if you’d like. Tomatoes are a wonderful source of the anti-oxidant lycopene.
Skillet Baked Eggs & Beans
Baked beans make a great base for eggs in this easy, all-in-one pan breakfast. Perfect for weekend brunch.
Herbed Salmon with Roasted Asparagus
Make great use of your time with this delightful salmon dish for two- the asparagus and salmon bake at the same time. A quick lemony couscous makes the perfect side.
Indian Red Bean and Goat Cheese Naan
Naan bread is the base for this pizza-like snack, topped with beans, cumin and coriander for an Indian twist. In the summertime, you can also barbecue the naan breads on a greased grill over medium heat for a lovely grilled flavour.
Exploding Tuna, Broccoli and Cheddar Sweet Potato Skins
Always keep a few cans of tuna on hand- it’s a great source of protein, reasonably-priced and infinitely versatile. Try this baked sweet potato, stuffed to bursting.
Apple Berry Breakfast Crisp
Tart apples such as Northern Spy or Ida Red are ideal for crisps and crumbles. Dark berries add a boost of beneficial phytochemicals.
All the flavours you love in Mexican fast food on a pizza crust instead of a tortilla. If you have a pizza paddle, this is the time to use it! It makes transferring the assembled pizza to the oven rack a cinch.
Spicy and Cool Roasted Cauliflower
A delicious contrast between the spicy cauliflower and the cooling yogurt makes this a fabulous vegetable side dish to serve with your favourite curry.
Healthy Tuna Melt
A childhood favourite, re-imagined for a more health-conscious you. Out with the mushy white bread and processed cheese slices, in with the multigrain thin bagels and spinach! And really, not only is it better for you, but it TASTES better, too...
