I came up with the recipe for this creamy and satisfying macaroni and cheese, which has a special twist. My husband requests it often - it's hearty enough to serve as a main dish.

Hold the pepperoni! From North Tonawanda, New York, Barbara Nowakowski shares a change-of-pace pizza that's big on veggie flavor. Topped with black beans, red tomato, golden corn and green pepper, it's as colorful as it is tasty. She suggests spicing up you next party light lunch or dinner with zesty slices.
Italian-seasoned veggies are served over pasta and topped with two types of cheese in this fast meal from Rachel Schmeckenbecher of Whitehall, Pennsylvania. She writes, “It's so quick to prepare and so flavorful, but low-fat!”
Chock-full of garden freshness, this colorful toss makes an excellent side dish or meatless entree. "Sometime I substitute penne pasta and add cooked chicken for a heartier main meal," says Rosemary Averkamp of Genoa, Wisconsin. "Using garlic-flavored feta cheese is a great touch."
"My neighbor and I discovered these delicious low-fat burritos a few years ago," writes Angela Studebaker of Goshen, Indiana. "On nights my husband or I have a meeting, we can have a satisfying supper on the table in minutes."
"I make this family favorite at least two or three times a month," remarks Jackie Messina of Chardon, Ohio. "It's wonderful with a salad and fresh Italian bread." Besides being easy to prepare, this meatless main dish is easy on the pocketbook at just 61 cents per serving.
