"My husband and I love to grill," Michelle Armistead says of her low-fat and nearly carb-free entree. "This delicious recipe is quick enough for weeknight meals. Simply make a salad and side dish while the tuna steaks are marinating, and dinner is on the table in no time," she writes from Marlboro, New Jersey.
Tired of pasta weighted down by sauce? Opt for Linda Nichols' nutritious toss-up of marinated tomatoes, linguine and cheese. "This recipe comes from my husband's sister, Allison, and is in our family cookbook. It is one of our favorite summer meals," she says from Atlantic, Iowa. "The leftovers make a great cold pasta salad."
From Tigard, Oregon, Janelle Inkens writes, "These venison steaks are so tender and tasty, they're even a hit with my kids, ages 3 and 4. Someone who tried this dish once said, 'Wow, if I could make venison taste like this, I'd make it all the time.'"
"My husband is a real fish lover," reports Erna Farnham of Marengo, Illinois. "This buttery treatment is his favorite way to prepare sole, perch or halibut." It cooks quickly in the microwave, so it's perfect for a busy weekday.
I created this dish to make the most of an overabundance of yellow squash and zucchini from our garden. It was a hit with the whole family. It's so easy to ladle the homemade sauce over quick-cooking frozen ravioli for a satisfying dinner.

When it's time to fix dinner, Nancy and John Mueller of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin head to the kitchen together. Married 48 years, they find that dividing up the work is fun, saves time and yields delicious results.
John, a retired elementary school principal and teacher, usually prepares the entree, "He especially likes to grill seafood like Garlic-Herb Red Snapper," says Nancy. "He started cooking 29 years ago when I went to work full time."
