Had a full day of sledding, shopping or decorating? Settle in for a family-pleasing meal of homemade pizza. With a prebaked crust and simple Alfredo sauce, it’s easy and delicious. —Tammy Hanks, Gainsville, Florida
Everyone in my family loves when I make this dinner...even my kids! What's great about this recipe is that you can add vegetables you have on hand to make it heartier, such as corn, peas, or diced red bell pepper.—Monica Werner, Temecula, California
This easy recipe is elegant enough for company, writes Bridgette Monaghan from Masonville, Iowa. “I've served it often, and everyone comments on its rich flavor. I love the fact that it can be made ahead.”
"I especially like to use frozen California-blend veggies when making this dish. If you prefer, you can substitute fresh garden vegetables, but it will add a little time. Simply start them in boiling water before adding the pasta. Then add the pasta during the last 3 minutes of cooking the veggies. This makes an easy, colorful and delicious entree!"

"I had a rich pasta dish similar to this at a restaurant," recalls Dana Simmons of Lancaster, Ohio. " It was so unique that i tried to duplicate it at home a few days later. This is remarkably close, but not as fussy because it uses ready-made ingredients rather than being made from scratch."
