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
"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."
"We really like the spicy flavor of this seafood dish," notes Collette Conlan of Burleson, Texas. "You can give it even more zip by increasing the amount of hot pepper sauce. If your family doesn't like the taste of curry, try substituting paprika instead."
SINCE I eat very little meat, I'm always on the lookout for vegetarian and low-fat recipes.
I came up with this recipe after a lot of experimenting. I used tomatoes as a base for the sauce, and my version of pasta primavera has been enjoyed by both family and friends.—Clara DelVitto, Midlothian, Virginia
