This week I am rounding up the best Midweek Meal Ideas to try. There are healthy dishes, delicious pastas, seafood and of course they are all easy to make at home.
Welcome to Week 7 of #CookBlogShare. Last week we were treated to a round of Flipping Good Pancakes hosted by Karen at Lavender and Lovage.
This week I have had the not-so-hard job of looking through the incredibly gorgeous entries from last week’s linky party to pick this weeks theme. So this week we have a lovely round-up of tasty Midweek Meal Ideas.
With the never-ending lockdown, I am so in need of something new to cook, having exhausted all my usual favourites.
Midweek Meal Ideas – Pasta Ideas
This gorgeous and fresh linguine with king prawn, chilli and tomato is not only quick and easy to make for a midweek meal. However, it also makes a super stylish meal for Date Night or entertaining. It looks fancy but is really simple to prepare at home. The light yet decadent sauce comes together in the time it takes to cook the linguine!
This Baked Feta Pasta is a super simple hands off dish made from only 5 ingredients! The yummy Feta is roasted in the oven with cherry tomatoes to create an unbelievably good creamy tomato sauce. As simple dishes go this is a recipe you will make time and time again. I can imagine enjoying this outside in the sunshine when we finally have summer.
If you want a new dish that the kids will love, has loads of flavour, that is easy to make and makes enough so that you have a super quick meal another day, then this is the recipe for you. This meal is the ultimate in comfort food and home cooking. I love a rich yet simple tomato sauce with meatballs. You really can’t beat it.

Midweek Meal Ideas – Comfort food
This Chicken and chorizo in a rich tomato sauce with a subtle warmth is calling to me for dinner. This Slow Cooker Chicken & Chorizo Stew is perfect for a cold winter night served with rice or tortillas and salad and a dollop of soured cream. I also love the addition of fresh herbs to add that extra sprinkling of flavour.
This vegetable stew is a delicious one-pot dinner that practically makes itself! Simply pop everything in the pot and let it cook in the oven while you relax. I love a dinner where it is as simple as popping all the ingredients into a pot, pop it in the oven, and come back a while later when everything is cooked and ready to serve.
Struggling with Tofu? Want to make it more appetizing or you think whatever you make with it it is going to be bland? Well, then you must try these Pan-Fried Crispy Tofu Bowl by Cook with Renu. It is a delicious dish and every bite has that burst of flavours. It has a hint of chilli, some sweetness and a hint of sour taste from the sauces.
