meatless monday layered squash enchilada verde

Meatless Monday meets seasonal butternut squash. Hooked yet? This dinner was inspired by Real Simple’s October issue. Spicy jalapeños, smooth sour cream, and sweet squash with salsa verde provide a hearty dish good for the heart! I used less salsa and added more cheese (because everything is better with more cheese!) than the original recipe and it totally worked, ask my husband and his huge second plate!

A meatless Monday masterpiece!

speedy spanish weeknight paella

A few years ago I had the opportunity of a lifetime to study abroad in Spain. After staying in the capital of Madrid, we travelled up to the northern coast and landed in the seaside town of San Sebastian. A beautiful city not only known for its two unique beaches, tapas affectionately known as “pinxtos,” and ritzy neighborhoods, but also boasts some of the freshest seafood I’ve ever tasted.

This traditional Spanish dish may seem like a task, but Bon Appetit’s recipe is so simple, you’ll be enjoying a glass of sangria while you wait for it to practically cook itself! I added a little extra liquid while the paella was simmering and I stirred slightly midway through cooking, but other than that, here’s their unaltered beginners version of Weeknight Chorizo and Clam Paella!

An impressive weeknight dish that's simple!
