It’s the night before Christmas…and you’ve got a ton of sh** to do. Here, nine Christmas Eve dinner ideas that are special and low-maintenance.
Cacio E Pepe
Start to finish, this decadent (and six-ingredient) dish takes 20 minutes. You can’t go wrong.
Sure, it sounds ambitious, but not if you chop the veggies in advance.
Baked Zucchini “Ziti” Spirals with Mozzarella
Keep the kids busy (and away from the gifts) by asking them to help roll the spirals.
Slow-Cooker Chicken Teriyaki
Easier (and tastier) than takeout.
Brussels Sprouts Pizza With Balsamic Red Onions
It takes 35 minutes from start to finish. (Not bad.)
Chicken Enchilada Casserole
It’s all about the layers. (Did we mention it’s gluten-free?)
Easy Bacon Butternut Squash Risotto
White wine—and only an hour of cook time—required.
Kale Minestrone Soup
Think of all the things you can get done while the soup simmers (sipping mulled wine included).
One-Pan Roasted Salmon with Potatoes and Romaine
Don’t forget to save a few bites for Santa.
