Weeknight Winners®

These aren't 30-or-fewer-minute meals, although many of them take no time at all. These are dishes that real cooks make. None of those dump 'n stir ditties that use 90% store-bought ingredients. Bottom line: They're just as quick but infinitely more tasty.

Two bowls filled with tortellini, peas, and spinach.
