With the hectic back-to-school season behind us you’re probably (hopefully!) in a groove with school lunch. But what about dinner?! I find that I get so wrapped up in preparing to pack lunches and getting my healthy snack game on that I forget—completely—about how hard it is to get healthy dinners on the table come fall.

These are my top 5 busy weeknight dinner recipes that save me. One is a hearty salad, the parts of which you can make ahead of time. The other is the easiest vegetarian recipe in my repertoire—it’s unexpectedly delicious. The third is a kid favorite and a recipe that can be easily stored in the freezer for a hail mary on the day that kicks your butt. The fourth is a super versatile approach to using made-ahead or leftover rice and grains. And the last is the easiest, fastest, cheesiest pasta that won’t break your calorie bank. Really.

Add these dinners to your weekly rotation: I promise you’ll be happy you did.
