In Hemet, California, Margaret W. keeps taste buds watering with Chicken Pasta Primavera. The classic entree is perfect when time is tight because it’s ready in less than half an hour.
Cathy Y. of Cicero, New York has an ultra fast finale to dinner. Fruit-Filled Quesadillas sandwich warm apricots and strawberries between crispy cinnamon-topped tortillas.
- Mixed greens salad
- Garden vegetable soup
- The main course calls for 4 cups cubed cooked chicken breasts. If you don’t have cooked chicken on hand, you’ll need to cook about 2 pounds of chicken in order to yield 4 cups.
- If there is any extra turkey from Wednesday’s sandwiches or leftover pork from Monday’s supper, feel free to cube it and use it in place of the chicken in the pasta dish.
- You’ll find cans of apricot nectar for the dessert wedges in the juice aisle of most supermarkets. Or you can replace it with orange juice.
- Substitute a dollop of fat-free whipped topping for the dessert’s ice cream…or cut calories by enjoying the fruity sensation on its own.
