18 Quick & Easy Meals Perfect for Busy Weeknights
During the week, making dinner can be so time consuming. After you come home from work, the idea of chopping, dicing, grilling, or searing is sometimes just too much to bear. Make your weeknights a little easier with recipes that are quick and easy and can be on the table in about 30 minutes. You can use store-bought pesto and toss it with pasta and chicken or you can quickly grill shrimp and serve it with pomegranate salsa. There are so many quick and simple options to make during the week, which is the reason why we made it the theme of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

Lemon Goat Cheese Pasta With Rotisserie Chicken
Rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite secret ingredients. It is a delicious time-saver, and it is the reason why this recipe can be prepared in less than 20 minutes. This pasta combines diced rotisserie chicken and broccoli with a creamy lemon and goat cheese sauce. It’s cheesy without tasting heavy, and the chicken and broccoli turn the dish into a complete meal. — The Kittchen
I've learned that fresh, wild-caught fish is most delicious when it's romanced with simple ingredients. This sole meunière is the perfect example of that. A light dredge in flour, then the fish is off to a pan of brown butter to become succulent and moist beyond belief. This easy fish recipe is then finished off with a drizzle of lemon butter sauce and a garnish of parsley. — Mon Petit Four

20-Minute One-Pot Meal
This is a low-calorie dinner that is still very comforting. This recipe is comfort food meets healthy in one pot.
Zucchini Noodles With Olives and Tomato Sauce
The sauce used to cook the zucchini noodles in this recipe is somewhat akin to puttanesca, minus the anchovies and capers. I love the brininess that the olives add to the tomato sauce, and they also add a meaty texture to this vegetarian recipe. (It’s actually vegan if you decide to leave off the cheese.) — The Hungry Hutch
