When I make more pasta than my husband and I can eat, I freeze the leftovers. It’s simple to put the frozen pasta in boiling water for just a few minutes to heat through. —Sandy L., Butler, Pennsylvania
“My husband is usually a meat and potatoes guy. But after I made this simple sauteed chicken and penne salad for him, he added it to his list of most-requested dinners.” —Janet Reimer, Armstrong, British Columbia
"I use chicken breasts as a base for building a variety of interesting meals," related Bill Hilbrich of St. Cloud, Minnesota. "This quick meal requires only on skillet plus a pan for the rice or pasta. Sometimes I change the recipe by adding a half cup of uncooked rice after the chicken and veggies have been sauteed."
My gang likes the taste of chicken cordon bleu, but I don't like the time required to make it. This skillet sensation, with the addition of broccoli, gives my family the flavors they crave with only a fraction of the work.
