Eggplant Parmesan

One of the most delicious, wholesome and family friendly dishes you can add to your menu is eggplant parmesan. Much like a lasagna, but based with vegetables rather than ground beef, this dish is a crowd pleaser in every sense of the word. With crispy roasted eggplant, fresh basil and juicy tomatoes this eggplant parmesan recipe is certainly one you need to try sooner rather than later. Your family will love digging into this hearty dish and there may not even be leftovers for the next day!

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Who doesn’t love spaghetti and meatballs? This is another tomato-based dish that is a great family sharer that takes next to no time to cook. You can either cook your meatballs from scratch or buy them from the store; whichever way you choose to do it, it’s bound to be a winner for dinner.

Fish Pie

A mixture of salmon, cod and hake chunks with fresh parsley makes for the most exquisite fish pie combination ever. Top it off with some buttery mashed potato laced with sea salt and ground black pepper and your family will be asking for second helpings again and again. This is also a dish that you can serve with additional steamed vegetables or a summery salad for some additional goodness and crunch.

Beef Stroganoff

A beef stroganoff may not be something you’re used to cooking on a day to day basis, but it’s a brilliant dish to bring out when you’ve got the whole family together. Adding in sumptuous chestnut mushrooms makes this a filling and appetizing dish for the entire family. Adding more mushrooms into your day to day diet can also help enhance your immune system and decrease inflammation in the body, so it’s always a good idea to add these into your dishes when you can.

As you can see, there are so many classic dishes that you can cook and share with your family. Whether you’re trying out an eggplant parmesan for the first time or adding a beef stroganoff to your repertoire, there is so much fun to be had in the kitchen. Cooking for people you love is exciting, relaxing and hugely rewarding, so try these ideas out for yourself and enjoy the process!
