Cooking projects for people who'd like nothing more than to spend a sunday afternoon surrounded by the wonderful aromas of the kitchen.

Editor's note: Each Saturday afternoon we bring you a Sunday Supper recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.

Fragrant loukaniko, headily spiced Greek sausage flecked with orange zest, is pretty hard to resist. Instead of making encased meat from scratch, though, this meatloaf recipe embraces its flavors—in meatloaf form.

It's then served with potatoes that are partly pre-cooked, set atop herbs with citrus peels and enclosed in a foil packet for grilling. Finishing the dish are grilled red onions, feta, and grilled lemon halves, the latter's flavor intensified by heat. Thankfully, this boldly flavored meal is fairly effortless to prepare.

Note: If you prefer to make this in the oven, feel free to. The cooking times will be roughly the same when the oven is set to 350°F. As for the potatoes, you can skip the microwave cooking, in which case they'll need 30 to 40 minutes of oven time depending on size.
