THE RECIPES
Spanakopita (Flaky Spinach and Feta Pie) by @nash1sh

This is the perfect recipe for a Sunday evening. Sure, it's sort of labor intensive, but the results are well worth the work!

Feedfeed Tip When working with phyllo dough, be sure keep it covered with plastic wrap and a tea towel at all times to prevent it from drying out. Also, you'll want to use a soft-bristled pastry brush to add the oil so you don't tear the delicate sheets.
Spicy Shakshuka Topped With Fresh Herbs And Feta by @hautesucre

This is one of our go-to meatless meals for busy weeknights. Feel free to add as much or as little spice as you like.

Cheesy Penne with Fennel and Pork Meatballs by @cheftaylorerickson

We called for jarred sauce in the ingredient list above to make this recipe weeknight friendly. Make the meatballs as written in the recipe, and just simmer your store bought marinara on the stove before adding cream and the browned meatballs.

Feedfeed Tip When rolling the meatballs, lightly coat your hands with oil. It will prevent the meat from sticking to your hands which will make it easier to avoid overworking the meat, which can result in tough and chewy meatballs.
Kale Caesar Salad with Paprika Croutons by @acouplecooks

The secret to the umami flavor in this vegetarian reinvented classic? Dill pickles. It gives the homemade dressing just the right amount of punch. @acouplecooks made this delicious salad from her new book Pretty Simple Cooking for us at Feedfeed a few weeks back, check it out here! Serve this salad with leftover pasta from the night before to round out the meal and reserve extra chickpeas for tomorrow night.

Crispy Chickpea and Garlic Yogurt Stuffed Baked Potato by @healthy_belly

It's hard to beat a loaded baked potato, especially when it's filled with crispy chickpeas and tangy garlic yogurt! Use the chickpeas leftover from the night before to make the crispy topping here.

Feedfeed Tip Use kitchen shears to get perfectly 'snipped' chives for topping these potatoes (and all your spring dishes!). Using shears is a more delicate way to handle herbs and will prevent them from bruising.
Potato, Kale, Onion and Ricotta Pizza by @familystylefood

We called for store bought pizza dough to give you more time to relax on Friday evening, but if you have a go-to homemade recipe, feel free to go that route instead.

Now that's how you kick off a weekend! Although they look decadent, these smoothie shakes are naturally sweetened with dates.
