zucchini skillet lasagna

I’ve decided that this zucchini skillet lasagna is how I’m going to ease into comfort food for the fall. It’s such a satisfying, comforting recipe that you can make all month with the zucchini growing in your garden. It’s super delicious and makes for the most satisfying meal.

sliced zucchini

Last year I shared this zucchini lasagna bolognese and WOW. Oh my gosh, I think about it every single week. I want to make it every week! It is so absolutely delicious – so satisfying and hearty at the same time. 

While it’s amazing, the only downside is that it’s a bit high maintenance. I mean, isn’t all lasagna? Yes, the answer to that is yes.

When it comes to zucchini lasagna, instead of taking the time to boil noodles (or, uh, use no boil!), you salt the slices and let them sweat out all the water. It takes some time, but you can use that time to prep the rest of the dish.

burst tomatoes in a skillet

I love zucchini lasagna so much and I was just dying to create an easier version. And zucchini skillet lasagna was born!

Initially, I had no idea how to make it happen. I really wanted to make a lattice zucchini topping, but I was afraid it would be too much work for a weeknight meal. I also didn’t know if it would end up being soft enough to slice through. So zucchini ribbons to the rescue!

The zucchini ribbons are PERFECT. They really resemble noodles. At least I think so. No, I will never think that spiralized vegetables are just like pasta noodles, but they are their own kind of noodles! I love how light and refreshing they can be – and that carries over into the entire dish. It’s really good.

While I love the zucchini ribbons, they aren’t the only star of this dish. Burst, saucy cherry tomatoes make an appearance too. And they are a total game changer.

Right now tomatoes are SO good and so sweet since it’s summer. However, you could totally make this in the cooler months too, because allowing the tomatoes to burst in a skillet gives them a lot more flavor.

The result is this garlicky, cherry tomato base that is incredible. I brown ground beef or turkey and then combine that with the burst tomatoes. Add in the zucchini ribbons, top with lots of ricotta and parmesan. Bake the baby and shower with crushed red pepper.

It’s phenomenal!  (more…)

This grilled steak salad is drizzled with blue cheese vinaigrette and loaded with tons of satisfying ingredients. Avocado! Pickled red onion! Pepitas! It’s a weeknight go-to that we love so much.

Dinner tonight is going to be gooooood. 

everyday steak salad with blue cheese vinaigrette

This salad is one of our go-do weeknight recipes. I make it when I have all the ingredients. I make it when I have leftover steak from another recipe or an abundance of blue cheese or  pickled onions. Basically, it’s the recipe I make when we want steak salads!

Sometimes I might make fries on the side too. That’s neither here nor there.

(EXCEPT TRY IT!)

grilled filet

When we make salads for dinner, it’s always my goal to make sure they taste restaurant-worthy. You know? Like how salads taste so amazing in restaurants but then you try to make them at home and you’re just… disappointed? 

I usually start with a base like my house salad and go from there. I may take bits and pieces of what I love from my house salads, ultimately ending up with a base that suits the protein that I’m going to put on top. 

blue cheese vinaigrette

There are also must haves for me: lots of seasoning, tons of texture and crunch. Those are non-negotiables in my salads! 

We probably do chicken salads the most often. Or even leftover burger salads. But when we want a good steak-salad, this is how I do it.

First, the most important part.

The vinaigrette!

This blue cheese vinaigrette is a sneak peek of one of the recipes in Everyday Dinners and it is a DREAM. If you love blue cheese AND love briney, tangy vinaigrettes, you will love it.

Our local grocery store used to have a blue cheese vinaigrette that I loved. When I was no longer able to find it, I decided to create my own and then throw the recipe in Everyday Dinners. I make it ALL the time. The recipe is part of the sauces and dressings chapter (which is pure GOLD!) but it goes on the grilled steakhouse salad in the book. The flavor combo is just out of this world.

The vinaigrette is a way to bring the blue cheese flavor to the steak without coating it in it. The blue cheese also “marinates” as it sits in the dressing, which is pretty fantastic too.

For the steaks, our favorite are filets (of course!) but occasionally I’ll do strip steaks too. Just lots of salt and pepper, high heat on the grill and a good rest before slicing. They are perfect that way. 

The rest of the salad is fairly basic. (more…)
