Looking for recipes perfect for two people? Sourced from the stylish web magazine The Kitchn, these three dishes look—and taste!—like they took all day to prepare, when, in fact, they're quite simple.
Thai Red Curry Mussels
Fit for a Friday night of lounging in front of the TV, this recipe swaps utensils for pieces of crusty bread, which is ideal for sopping up the mussels' coconut milk-curry broth.
Penne alla Vodka
With just a hint of vodka, a creamy tomato sauce coats penne pasta in this easy recipe. Red pepper flakes, salty parmesan cheese, and fresh basil provide the garnish. Because this recipe serves four to six people, you'll likely have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.
30-Minute Coq Au Vin
This recipe for coq au vin can rival that of any fancy French restaurant, and it can go from start to finish in under an hour. Serve this one-pot meal with crusty French bread, egg noodles, roasted potatoes, and, of course, a glass of red wine.
