My mother inspired me to develop my first pasta sauce. It's tangy, simple and really satisfying. The longer it simmers, the better it gets, so keep that in mind if you have time to spare. —Danielle Grochowski, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Combining an Italian pasta and Mexican ingredients created an exceptional dish for Mrs. Larry Phillips from Shreveport, Louisiana. She writes, "This recipe is well-liked even in Cajun Country Louisiana!"
“This dish was a favorite of mine at a local restaurant, but when I saw the recipe, I knew it was too rich for my family's diet,” writes Lynn Skilsky of Oro Valley, Arizona. “I made some healthy changes, and now it's one of my favorites.”
I had a bunch of fresh veggies and combined them with sausage, gnocchi and goat cheese when I needed a quick dinner. Mix and match your own ingredients for unique results. —Dahlia Abrams, Detroit, Michigan
I'm tired at the end of the workday, so fast meals are always appreciated. I came up with this pasta dish one night using ingredients we happened to have on hand. I knew it was a success when my husband, who doesn't even like chicken, couldn't stop eating it!
Fresh basil (which is available in grocery stores year round) lends terrific flavor to these tasty chicken rolls. As the fantastic finishing touch, toss the pasta with purchased or homemade pesto just before serving.
