What to cook this week

This ingenious mash-up is what happens when you stuff all of the best parts of a cheeseburger (ground beef, cheese and all the fixings) into jumbo pasta shells, top them with tomato sauce and even more cheese, then bake it all up. Think Hamburger Helper, but kicked up a notch. The crowd (ahem, your family) will go wild.

Easy recipe alert! This make-ahead enchilada recipe calls for just 5 ingredients — including a rotisserie chicken. Do your future self a favor and prep these in advance so that all you have to do is pop the casserole dish in the oven once you’re ready to eat it.

Now here’s one way to start your morning off right: Scramble eggs with spinach for a quick and easy breakfast taco filling. Top with diced avocados and your favorite hot sauce for a protein-packed start to your day.

Ever think you’d see the words “easy” and “scallops” in the same sentence? No? Well, think again! You’ll feel like a restaurant chef once you master this simple method for making perfectly seared scallops in less than 10 minutes.

You didn’t think we’d forget about dessert, did you? If you’re a Nutella fan, these no-bake cookies, which are loaded with rolled oats and chocolate hazelnut spread, are the stuff of dreams. Plus, you don’t even have to turn on your oven.
