With three hungry boys in my house, dinners need to be quick, filling and it helps to get in some veggies, too. This one is a favorite because it's hearty and fun to tweak with different ingredients. mdash;Kim Van Dunk, Caldwell, NJ

"A perfect meatless weeknight dinner. My kids (7,4, and 1) gobbled it down, and I think I'll make a double batch next time so we can have leftovers. My husband and I liked it with extra chili sauce on top but I left that off for my youngest two."
