Comfort food recipes. The best choice for you.

  1. Satay chicken noodle soup with squash, Serve this warming bowl of spicy, nourishing chicken noodle soup whenever you fancy some comfort food. You can make the base a day or two before serving.
  2. These tender Honey Chipotle Ribs are grilled until they develop a wonderful char and are both sweet and spicy.
  3. Vegan Tuscan Pumpkin Pasta Sauce, Are you ready for a new way to enjoy pumpkin this season? This recipe is a fun Fall-inspired twist, with a hint of cinnamon and sage, and sticks to pasta much better than plain old marinara sauce.
  4. Hunter’s chicken, What could be more comforting than chicken breasts wrapped in bacon with BBQ sauce and cheese? Serve this easy chicken dish with mash or roast potatoes.
  5. Spaghetti with Creamy Meat Sauce, This simple meat sauce will persuade you to ditch the jarred stuff for good.
  6. Five-Cheese Ziti al Forno, After having the five-cheese ziti at Olive Garden, I tried to make my own version of it—and I think I got pretty close. I always double this when I’m making it and freeze the second one for another meal.
  7. Hearty red wine braised short ribs and creamy white cheddar mashed potatoes.
  8. Chicken, Spinach & Artichoke Lasagna, If you know spinach-artichoke dip is the best way to start a party, you can only guess what layering it in lasagna does: EVERYTHING. This is our go-to dinner for nights when you want something super-comforting, but also need to sneak in some greens, too.  The cream sauce is perfect.
