Easy Dinner Ideas For October



This month I’m craving comfort food — in a big way! Lots of pastas and soups with a few healthy meals thrown in. And if you need more weeknight dinner inspiration you can see 20 more meal ideas here and my weekly meal plans here and here.

One Pan Salmon & Squash With Couscous: This is on my menu this week and I can’t wait to try it!

Chipotle Pumpkin Black Bean Soup: I’m always on the hunt for new soup recipes and this one sounds delicious, especially served with corn bread.

Butternut Squash Carbonara: If I wasn’t pregnant THIS would be at the top of my list!

Pesto Stuffed Shells: I’m planning to make a large batch of these so I can freeze some for when our baby arrives.

Chai Butternut Squash Soup: I have mastered butternut squash soup and make it far too frequently in the fall, I recently tried this recipe with apple cider and I really want to try this chai version!

5-Ingredient Green Curry: I love a good, quick curry!

Autumn Root Vegetable Gratin: This takes a while to bake (almost an hour) but the prep isn’t too labor intensive.

Pumpkin Polenta With Vegetables: If you haven’t made polenta you are missing out – it’s a great easy weeknight meal that you can top with veggies and meat.

Easy Lasagna Soup: An easy take on a classic comfort food.

10 Minute Quesadillas: I make quesadillas at least once a week and am always looking for new recipes!

Za’atar & Hummus Salmon Lentil Salad: A power food salad sounds like a good idea after all the indulging I’ve been doing lately.

Mac & Cheese With Greens: Always looking for ways to sneak in greens and this recipe sounds delicious!
