Put your garden-fresh summertime veggies to good use with a colorful side dish that gets a little heat from Cajun seasoning. It pairs well with any entree and is quick and easy to prepare. —Nancy Dentler, Greensboro, North Carolina
"These tender kabobs are full of savory rosemary flavor yet they're low in fat and sodium," says Elisabeth Corcimiglia of Byron, New York. "I found the original recipe in a magazine but adjusted it to better suit the tastes in my household."
Convenience foods make this hearty entree a snap to prepare. Purchased meatballs are easy to thread onto skewers. And since they're precooked, you just need to grill the kabobs until the fresh veggies are tender. Basting with bottled barbecue sauce adds fast flavor.
