You might just have to trust the process on this one—but we have nearly 100 5-star reviewers to back us up. First, you’ll warm your frozen meatballs in a pizza sauce, apple jelly, and Italian seasoning sauce before adding them to buns and toasting the sub with mozzarella cheese in the oven. “This sauce certainly is outside-the-box and outrageously good,” says Allrecipes Allstar lutzflcat.

Chef John’s One-Pan Orecchiette Pasta is loaded with spicy Italian sausage, arugula, and cheese in a lightly flavored chicken broth sauce. The only change reviewers make is using spinach instead of arugula if that’s what they have on hand.

This 30-minute meal is made with just seven ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. It’s a great option when you want a tuna noodle casserole, but don’t have time time to bake one, since this is made entirely on your stovetop. You can even add French-fried onions as a garnish for that crispy, baked texture.

If you’ve never tried this unique chili that hails from Ohio, you’re truly missing out. The chili, seasoned with Worcestershire sauce, chocolate, cinnamon, cayenne, and cloves, is delicious on its own—but, to keep it authentic, serve the chili as a “sauce” over spaghetti with cheese, diced onions, and kidney beans.

Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs

It doesn’t get much easier than these one-pot, crispy, glazed Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs. Be sure to deglaze your pan and save the delicious leftover onions, garlic, and sauce to dress your chicken or any rice and vegetables you serve it with.

“My cabbage roll casserole has all the ingredients of stuffed cabbage rolls but is a lot easier to make! This basic recipe will appeal to everyone but if you prefer more flavor, consider adding crushed garlic, paprika, thyme, or cayenne pepper,” says recipe creator BUCHKO.
