This week is about comfort-food classics that will make you forget all about the nosedive the weather has taken (winter-coat weather is here). From a decadently cheesy pasta to a new take on the cabbage roll to a saucy, warm chocolate pudding for Friday-night dessert, this week, dinner's taken care of.

Find some mealtime inspiration in the gallery below, starting with our Swiss fondue mac and cheese:

Monday: Swiss fondue mac & cheese

Ready in: 25 min. Serves: 4.
One of the most addictive pastas we’ve ever developed. It’s super-cheesy, with a quick hit of acidity from the pickles (they balance out the richness perfectly). And did we mention that there are crunchy bread crumbs on top? Get our Swiss fondue mac & cheese recipe.

Tuesday: Vegetarian haggis cottage pie

Ready in: 40 min. Serves: 4.
A hearty one-dish meal packed with plant-based protein and vegetables. Topped with fluffy mashed potatoes, it’s a comforting cold-weather meal for everyone. Get our vegetarian haggis cottage pie recipe.

Wednesday: Cabbage roll casserole

Ready in: 45 min. Serves: 4.
Cabbage rolls are highly underrated, so we put together a simple (and delicious) version for people to add to their dinner rotation. Tender leaves are layered in between a hearty rice and sausage filling, and simmered in a fresh sauce so all the flavours can meld together. Get our cabbage roll casserole recipe.

Thursday: Stuffed portobello mushroom parmigiana

Ready in: 35 min. Serves: 4.
Cheesy, saucy and meaty (thanks to the portobellos), this parmigiana is a must-try for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Get our stuffed portobello mushroom parmigiana recipe.

Friday: Beef tostadas

Ready in: 30 min. Serves: 4.
These crispy corn tostadas are topped with juicy strips of steak, fresh lettuce, tomato, jalapenos and feta cheese — and are ready in a half hour or less. (Easy and delicious, the perfect combination.) Get our beef tostadas recipe.

Dessert: Chocolate pudding cake

Ready in: 40 min. Serves: 6.
This cozy confection — decadent cake enrobed in a silken sauce — provides a delicious excuse to stay in this Valentine’s Day. But when you serve it, have your spoon at the ready: It won’t last long. Serve it up in individual dishes or dig right in. Get our chocolate pudding cake recipe.
