Healthy Make-Ahead Dinners

Put those takeout menus down and opt for a homemade delicious dinner. We know, weeknights can get a little crazy, but preparing for busy nights with these make-ahead meals will help you get to super cook status in a flash. Our recipes bring delicious flavors to the table in a pinch and avoid the dreaded nutritional stats of most take-out joints. So, when you just can't find the time for meal prep, pop open a bottle of vino because dinner is coming right up.

There is no better recipe to start with than our meaty bolognese. It tastes like it has been cooking away on the stove all day even though its initial prep takes only about an hour. The fact that you just pulled it out of the fridge and reheated will be our secret.
