We've got three meals that require no sides so you can whip up a quick and tasty meal that doesn't heat up your whole house and get back to having summer fun. You'll make each of these three meals, so you definitely won't go home hungry, and you'll probably even have leftovers.
First up, we've got a very summery, and kind of fancy, version of grilled cheese made with sourdough, fresh mozzarella, basil pesto, and the best tomatoes we can find at the market.
Next, we'll make a salad that is entree-worthy. This is a northern Thai meal that will make you rethink salads. It's got a bunch of summery herbs and greens, a garlic, pepper, and lime dressing, then gets topped of with marinated grilled skirt or flank steak. Super delicious.
Finally, we'll make an Italian classic, Pasta Primavera. Primavera actually means springtime in Italian, but it makes a great summer dish too, because it's pasta with a LOT of fresh veggies and a LOT of parmesan cheese, made lighter and brighter with the addition of lemon juice and fresh herbs.
