25 Quick Dinner Recipes in 20 Minutes or Less

Every weeknight here our Dinner Tonight column serves up a different supper recipe. We understand, however, that not everybody is in a position to devote an hour on a weeknight to prepare soups or slower-cooked meats. That's why we've ventured into Dinner Tonight's archives to find meals that are both seriously quick and seriously tasty.

In this collection, you'll find 25 dishes that you can prepare in 20 minutes or less. That's faster than take-out! Dan dan noodles, Ferran Adria's Caesar salad, and more speedy dinners in this collection. See them all in the slideshow »
