Basil, marjoram and Parmesan cheese nicely season this satisfying main dish from Polly Lynam of Mequon, Wisconsin. "I saute the meat while the pasta is cooking, so it takes just minutes to make," she says. "My family likes it with tender strips of pork, but chicken is an easy alternative."
“This is a delicious stew,” says Carma Blosser of Livermore, Colorado. “The sausage and turnips give it really special flavor.” A slice of crusty bread makes a great mop to clean up any remaining broth!
With fresh sage and apple, this dish is tasty, easy and done in a flash. The recipe says garlic butter, but I keep a jar with three cloves of garlic covered in olive oil and use that instead. The garlic oil is delicious for salads also. —Lorraine Caland, SHUNIAH, Ontario
