Dinner Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less

Easy weeknight meal ideas


Nothing is better than a quick weeknight dinner after a long day at work. Editors here at TDM couldn’t agree more, which is why we put together some of our favorite meals to make in 30 minutes or less.

While you could go with a tried-and-true pasta dish, try switching it up a little and instead pick a protein like pork chops or tilapia and create a quick meal around it, either with some vegetables or a lightly dressed salad.

To get you started, try the recipes below and please share any dinner ideas you may have with us!
