Spinach-Artichoke Stuffed Shells

Who doesn’t love a creamy, flavorful baked pasta dish? Bonus points if it’s extra cheesy. This recipe fits the bill in all the right ways, and gains nutritional value Popeye would be proud of! Chopped baby spinach combines with artichoke hearts, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, and garlic to form the “stuffing” for jumbo pasta shells. A rich and silky homemade Alfredo sauce brings the whole dish together. Bake it up in the oven until warm and melty and you’ve got a dinner that’s going to become a new family favorite.

Creamy Chicken & Rice Soup

When cool fall evenings have you craving a warm and satisfying meal, look to this soup inspired by a favorite classic dish. It’s easy to make in a single pot and is a warm and inviting way to end your day. Chicken, onions, carrots, and celery simmer together in a thyme- and garlic-infused broth made creamy with flour and heavy cream. Wild rice cooked right in the pan adds just the right texture and flavor. Make this soup any time you want to serve up a bowlful of comfort.

Chicken Quesadillas

It’s always the right time for South-of-the-Border fare, especially when it’s something as delicious as these Chicken Quesadillas. Mexican-spiced chicken, sautéed onions and peppers, a blend of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, and a few slices of avocado get sandwiched inside two fresh flour tortillas. Sear each quesadilla in a skillet until the cheese is gooey and both sides are a deep golden brown. Serve with sour cream on the side and enjoy this midweek pick-me-up.
