What to Cook This Week

I hope that your 2020 is off to a lovely start. In terms of catching up, I am still paying mightily for the one-week vacation I took with the fam over New Year’s, dashing around Europe like we were in some sort of weird reality show (we always bite off too much). But it was worth it.
Here’s a proposal for all of us (hear me out . . . ): What if we ALL took a one-week break and promised each other that we would not instigate any new projects, have any parties, create any new deadlines, etc., and we all agreed that for one week we would just clean up the miscellaneous backlog in our lives? See, no one would miss anything or fall behind because we would all be complying with the one-week hiatus/sabbatical/what have you. If I ruled the world, I would implement such a plan. 
But for now, we are all dealing with the same 24/7 schedule, so we just continue to dance as fast as we can.
Maybe I can make dinnertime a little less formidable. Here are five dishes that will get themselves on the table in less time than it takes to watch an episode of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.
This is pure Italian comfort food: Chicken Parmesan translated into a pasta casserole.

A handful of ingredients turns a pound of shrimp into a terrific, quick, and easy weeknight dinner in under thirty minutes.

Vegetarian quesadillas are a very helpful addition to the weekday repertoire. They're a great way to use up leftover vegetables, and super versatile. Appetizers, snacks, and—with a salad—dinner. My favorite way to make quesadillas is in a pan on the stove, and once you get comfortable by making a few, you will see that it’s quite easy to make two in a pan at one time.

This filled pasta recipe is colorful with spinach and tomatoes, and lush with a nice pour of cream. It's a one-dish dinner.

This is a truly pretty and flavorful fish dish, with a kind of olive tapenade-like topping. My family is a full-on olive family, so that's always a hit. Serve with a pile of quinoa or rice, or maybe cheesy mashed potatoes. Or maybe Roasted Butternut Squash with Creamy Sauce.
