Here’s one of those no-fuss recipes you can toss together and cook in one skillet. Ideal for a busy weeknight, it’s also good with crumbled Italian chicken sausage if you need to please meat-lovers. —Julianne Meyers, Hinesville, Georgia
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.
Tradition has it that if you eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day, you'll enjoy prosperity all year through, but I serve this tasty combination of pasta, peas and tangy tomatoes sauce any time. —Marie Malsch, Bridgman, Michigan
