Butternut Squash Casserole
Scoop up a bowl of comfort with this recipe for a noodle casserole filled with ricotta cheese and roasted butternut squash. It unquestionably calms nerves while sending cheesy goodness straight through your system.
Slow Cooker Meatballs
OK, these meatballs are out of control. Not only are they deliciously delicate, but they're also filled with layers of parmesan cheese — and you can make the meatballs in your slow cooker. Add the noodles in the final minutes of cooking for a comforting main dish.
Pesto Stuffed Red Peppers
Elevate basic stuffed peppers with this recipe that coats noodles with pesto and then gets topped with melted fresh mozzarella and toasted pine nuts. It's a touch sophisticated but still totally comforting.
Baked Zucchini Parmesan
I love eggplant parmesan, but the thought of all that frying and layering makes me tired. Instead, bake zucchini and then layer over it noodles and tomato sauce for a dish that's so good — and didn't take hours to make.
Spicy Ginger Shrimp
It's super easy to stop for takeout on the way home, but this dish comes together in minutes — and is seriously deicious. The spicy ginger shrimp sit atop a flavorful bed of Napa cabbage and noodles, literally elevating your mood bite by bite.
