I, like most people in Sonoma, love an elaborate dinner, made with time and care (maybe using a recipe!) and local ingredients.
But, between my somewhat time consuming job and other personal obligations, most days dinner is perfunctorty; I rarely have time to cook something new and inventive.
That's why, most weeknights, you can find me resorting back to my old standby: pesto veggie rice. It's adapted from this recipe, and is perfect for a number of reasons: It's got enough veggies to feel healthy, enough cheese to make me happy and with a little prep, it's on the table in under ten minutes.
But there's gotta be better weeknight cooking going on, so we're putting it to a crowd: What's your favorite quick and easy dinner. Share the recipe in the comments and/or upload a photo to the article by clicking 'add.' Or, e-mail the recipe and photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll feature all our favorites in an upcoming column on easy dinners, so you'll leave with a bunch of great options.
