 Looking for new supper ideas for a busy evening? Here are 20 one dish recipes perfect for school nights from cookingmimi.com

It’s hard to believe but school starts up here very soon. The Phineas and Ferb theme song is wrong, there aren’t 104 days of Summer vacation. In fact for my local system I think it’s about an eighty day break.

School nights are incredibly busy, especially for working parents. Between homework, clubs, sports, church and volunteer activities evenings can be chaotic. It becomes tempting to head to the drive thru or order pizza.

This collection of one dish recipes contain slow cooker recipes, stove top recipes, and even an oven recipe or two. Whether you like pasta, rice, meatless dishes, or fish and seafood there is a recipe for nearly all tastebuds.
