Weekday go-to dinners

SoCal Mother | Feb 24, 2011 01:24 PM

I am trying to come up with some new ideas for fast, healthy and relatively inexpensive weekday dinners. Yeah, I know, choose 2...

I'll start:

Spinach Squares (modified from Recipes for a Small Planet)
2-3 eggs
6 Tbs. flour
1 lb. cottage cheese
1/2 lb. grated yellow cheese (I use about half that!)
pinch salt (I omit)
1 pkg. fresh spinach (I use Trader Joe's frozen)
wheat germ - optional (I don't like the sweet taste)
1/3 cup milk

Beat flour and eggs in a VERY large bowl. Mix in everything else. Sprinkle w/wheat germ and pour into greased (I use pan spray) baking dish. (I double the recipe and use a disposable half-steam pan.)

Bake at 350 for 45 min. Needs more like an hour to 1:15 if doubled.

The doubled recipe served with a pot of rice fed 3 teenage boys and 2 adults last night. That translates to 8-10 portions.
