Meal prepping can be tough—planning dinners, cooking multiple meals, portioning everything perfectly and finding a place in your fridge for all those containers can feel overwhelming. Though this practice will save you time on busy weeknights, there's a better, less time-consuming meal prep option: big-batch cooking.

Big-batch meal prepping lets you cook a dinner staple, like roasted chicken or turkey, in bulk and then repurpose them throughout the week. This takes the pressure off having to meticulously plan and cook a week's worth of meals and gives you a handy shortcut you can reuse all week long. To get started,  we've rounded up four weeks of big-batch mains and weeknight dinner suggestions that'll turn you into a pro in no time.

Feel like your back in your grandma's kitchen with a dozen or two of these tasty meatballs. For your first meal, have a classic dinner with a mountain of spaghetti, a loaf of this herby chive garlic bread and this super simple spaghetti sauce. Be sure to serve the meatballs and sauce separately so you're able to cook non-Italian dishes during the week, too.
