These meals are so quick, you'll have them on the table before you can say "six o'clock."

Don't surrender to expensive take-out food. Consider these fresh and speedy menu ideas instead. We offer four effortless entrées--complete with easy side dishes--that will change the way you think about fast food. Most can be prepared in 20 minutes or less, allowing you to walk away from the kitchen as they bake and simmer. Plus, our online shopping list provides everything you'll need for a week of scrumptious meals. (We've even included two bonus recipes so no ingredients go to waste.) With these family-approved favorites, your weeknight meals will practically prepare themselves.
