Whether you were taking taco night to a whole new level with Rachael's Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas, or getting excited for the return of 30 Minute Meals by making her Charred Eggplant and Meat Sauce with Paccheri, you weren't afraid to pile on the protein.
Even feeding your pasta craving came with a side of meat — just ask Rachael's Beef 'n' Queso Macaroni or her Bucatini with Meatball Dumplings (which made your top 10 list for the third month in a row!).
