Getting back on track...

As kids are heading back to school, if you’re wondering how to answer ‘what’s for dinner, especially when things are a little hectic. We’ve got you! We’ve cooked up our top recommendations for easy kid-friendly dinner ideas. These recipes have minimum prep times and will help you save time while knowing you’ll have a delicious dinner on the table for all the family in no time.

If you’re in the mood for chicken, our Mediterranean Chicken Traybake is a must-try. We created this recipe with busy families in mind. With only 10 minutes of hands-on prep, let the oven do the hard work. You could even mix everything together, leave the tray in the fridge, and when you’re ready, pop it in the oven! Plus it's a great tasty way to get some veggies into your diet!

Pasta is always on our go to list for a quick and easy midweek meal. Our Tuna & Tomato Pasta Bake features a simple tomato sauce made with store cupboard ingredients and tinned tuna. Tinned tuna is a great one to have on standby for an easy midweek meal, whilst tapping into the tinned fish trend too. This recipe is great for leftovers too for a tasty lunch!

If you are looking for a quick and tasty fix then this rapid 15 minute Sausage & Pesto Gnocchi by James Wythe is great to have up your sleeve. Using only 5 core ingredients, this gluten free and vegan dish is also a one pan wonder! Packed with green vegetables it’s a great way to up your veg intake. If you prefer you can use regular gnocchi and meat sausages instead. 

Last but by no means least, we have this game changing Cheat’s Lasagne recipe. This clever rift on a lasagne uses ready made filled tortelloni pasta to build a speedy traybake. Tortelloni layered with a quick tomato sauce, baby spinach and creamy mozzarella, all baked in one dish. We think this one will get full marks from all the family!
