3 Cozy Fall Meal Prep Recipes – Perfect for Back to School

Fall is upon us and that means eating lots of cozy and comforting meals! Today, I’m sharing three fall recipes: Traditional Shepherd’s Pie, Garden Tomato Soup, and Butternut Squash & Sage Pasta!

While some of these recipes may take a bit of time, it’s nothing a little meal prepping can’t solve! I love to meal prep this time fo year since I’m often really busy and it helps me make good choices, especially when it comes to dinner. If you have not tried meal prepping before, give it a go with these recipes! This way, you can enjoy these three comforting fall recipes any time this season! 🍂 🍁

Traditional Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is the comfort food of all comfort foods! I went super traditional and used ground lamb in this recipe, but if you aren’t a fan of lamb, you can substitute it with ground beef.

I think this recipe is super comforting because it has all the elements of a traditional Sunday dinner– just in pie form. You have your meat, your vegetables, and your potatoes all wrapped into one! 

This recipe is excellent for meal prepping since it is a bit of a tedious recipe. But you can assemble your Shepherd’s Pie and then freeze it so that you have it on hand for when you need it on a busy night during the week. You can also make this recipe in individual ramekins like I did,or you can make it in a large baking dish so that it can feed a family.

Garden Tomato Soup

This Garden Tomato Soup recipe is the perfect way to use up and/or preserve those delicious end-of-summer tomatoes!

If you have lots of tomatoes on hand, you can make a really large batch of this soup and then freeze it so that you can keep that fresh delicious summer tomato flavour throughout the winter. I did this last year and I was eating a delicious tomato soup in mid-February thinking that this was the best idea I’ve ever had.

Whether you eat this fresh or in a few months after freezing it, don’t forget to serve it with a side of grilled cheese for dipping!

Butternut Squash & Sage Pasta

Butternut squash and sage are a classic fall flavour pairing! These two ingredients go extremely well with pasta, but sometimes your everyday butternut squash pasta can get a bit mushy and a bit boring.

My recipe has a surprising crunch from the addition of toasted walnuts, crispy sage leaves, and pasta that has been fried until it is brown and crispy!
