There’s no question that chicken is a go-to pick for weeknight dinners and dressed-up meals alike. But sometimes the beloved grilled chicken breast just doesn’t cut it, and when that happens, it’s time to inject bold flavors, as Giada De Laurentiis does in this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Quick to prepare and healthy to boot, these chicken roll-ups feature a savory filling of prosciutto and spinach, plus a sprinkle of nutty Parmesan cheese for a welcome bite. Round out the chicken with a lemony sauce for an impressive finish.

With Labor Day weekend in full swing, you’re likely heading outdoors to grill up an alfresco dinner. For dessert, look no further than the grill yet again — well, kind of. This week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week is a cake that looks just like a grill, but features sweet-treat toppings and a chocolate cake base. Hot dogs made from taffy, kebabs made from candy fruits, and corn made from sponge cake and jelly beans — it’s all here. The base of the cake is made using a simple boxed chocolate cake mix, and charred marshmallows and red candies are layered upon the cake to create the “coals.” Place a round cooling rack over the coals as a grate, and top it with the “grilled foods” to complete the scene.

It’s just as easy to make a fresh pasta sauce as it is to boil water, thanks to the one-pot method in this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. All the ingredients for a simple tomato sauce — think garlic, fresh basil and chopped tomatoes — are cooked at the same time and in the same pot as dried pasta and water, allowing the flavors to blend seamlessly and quickly. The water acts as both a cooking liquid for the noodles and the base of the sauce, while the addition of nutty Parmesan cheese at the end of cooking helps thicken the mix. Bonus: This fuss-free dinner is ready to eat in only 20 minutes.

This week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, a top-rated recipe from Tyler Florence, brings the mouthwatering aromas of Spanish saffron to your dining room table.
