Use the collection of dinner ideas listed below to get your whole family crowding around the table. These dinner ideas are perfect for unexpected guests too.
1. No-Bake Summer Lasagna
Lasagna is a traditional and filling comfort food. Reserve your baked, cheesy versions for the winter months, and try your hand at a lighter, no-bake version when it’s hot outdoors.
With a few simple ingredients and minimal cooking time, you can serve lasagna in the warmest months of the year. Mix tasty ricotta with freshly grated parmesan, salt, pepper and olive oil to make the cheese filling. Cook the pasta al dente and create layers with zucchini, corn, basil, tomatoes and your cheese mixture.
