February Healthy Dinners: What to Cook (Feb 15)

Weeknight Dinner Meal Plan: It’s mid-February and there’s a lot to celebrate. This week we’re planning February Healthy Dinners to observe both Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, and the beginning of Lent. 

Tuna Penne Pasta for February Healthy Dinners: What to Cook (Feb 15)

Celebrating Valentine’s Day over the weekend, there were treats aplenty! But chocolate is healthy, right? That’s what I told myself all weekend.

And right on it’s heels, the celebrations continue into this week as we celebrate Mardi Gras or Shrove Tuesday, and the beginning of the Lent season on Ash Wednesday. 

Hopefully, there are plenty of weeknight dinner options, no matter how you celebrate!

February Healthy Dinners Dinner Plan

On Monday, we’re planning a Vegetarian Spring Egg Casserole, because while it’s been snowing all weekend in my neck of the woods, spring is just around the corner. This dish is a Mediterranean Diet classic.

For Tuesday, I’ve jotted down two options. And honestly, I will be making both. Shrove Tuesday Pancakes (you can read about its history in the post) in the morning. And Instant Pot Jambalaya for dinner. That’s one I get requests for all year long. It’s SO good.

While many fast on Ash Wednesday if they’re observing Lent, I’m planning an Italian Penne with Tuna pasta. I’ll serve it with a mixed greens salad.

With snowflakes fluttering all weekend, I’m still craving soup. But my favorite cabbage soup spans both winter and spring… with makes it perfect for mid-February.

For Friday, we’re making a Sheet Pan Greek Roasted Fish. Depending on what is most fresh at the market, I will probably make salmon.

Have a wonderful week!
