Here are five recipes that won’t break the bank and are kid-friendly! One of them even lasts for two nights, which means you have an entire week of meals (plus one night for eating out!) right here. These are all tried and true from moms and grandmas. Enjoy!
Copycat Chick-fil-A Night
-Coleslaw for the side
Cook the ground beef with one pack of ramen seasoning mixed in, then drain. Put the ramen noodles, veggies, and other seasoning pack in a pot with the 2 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Cook until most of the water boils off. Add the meat to the noodle veggie mixture.
Pesto Gnocchi and Sausage
The beauty of this recipe is that it’s customizable! Use whole wheat gnocchi or pasta instead, or sub out for any kind of meat or vegetable that sounds good to you. You can even use sun dried tomato pesto instead of basil pesto. And the whole meal goes in one bowl with no need for sides, although garlic bread is always a favorite!
Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix chicken, chicken soup, and mushroom soup in a bowl. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. In a second bowl, mix the stuffing, butter, and chicken broth. Layer over the chicken mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.
