Meal Plan // Week 1: New Year Beginnings | 31Daily.com

“One of our most popular dinners this year was this easy traybake. The most influential ingredient here is frozen peas—quite a lot of them, still completely frozen. The steam they produce as they bake makes the chicken beautifully tender, its skin crackly and crisp on top.”

Long a tradition in our house, New Year’s Day is all about football, resolutions — if we didn’t make them the night before, and soup. Usually Country Style Minestrone Soup, but here are some healthy and cozy New Year’s Day soup recipes to choose from. Of course, it’s almost a requirement to have a large crusty loaf of bread too! Whether you can stay out of the leftover Christmas cookies is debatable! Happy 2020 everyone!

Thursday: Sausage and Leek Pasta

“It’s loaded with kale, tons of leeks which are literally my currently favorite vegetable, a bit of savory sausage, cheese, red pepper flakes, and more! I used my favorite little Orecchiette pasta because they look like little ears, but feel free to use whatever kind of pasta you prefer!”
