Noodles and Pasta
If you're looking for something relatively easy meal for two, try these pasta and noodle dishes. Noodles are classic comfort food that can be on the dinner table in no time.
My best Sunday dinner ideas generally start with a protein like chicken breasts or ground turkey. Then I'll consider tasty side dishes like fresh green beans and garlic bread. Then you have a complete meal!
For a super easy recipe, try sheet pan dinners. If you want to make a whole chicken, try a cornish hen made in an air fryer.
Beef and Lamb
While ground beef is always in my meal rotation, Sunday dinner recipes call for ribeye steak or lamb chops. You don't need a special occasion for these Sunday dinner recipes.
You have to try the Normandy pork chops with a creamy sauce. The creme fraiche is the best part.
Seafood and Fish
If you don't want leftovers the next day, try one of these two-serving fish recipes. A Sunday fish dinner is a great way to end the week.
Go meatless with these vegetarian recipes. Ricotta pesto pasta is a family favorite.
