I developed this recipe one Saturday night when I wanted to make something a little nicer, but with minimal time in the kitchen. I'd tried something similar at a restaurant a few weeks earlier. It's a great way to use leftover grilled chicken...or you can use purchased grilled chicken strips.
This attractive savory stir-fry from Dot Christiansen of Bettendorf, Iowa stars succulent, quick-cooking scallops. "It may seem that timing is everything when you first try this recipe, but you'll soon realize you can pretty much just throw it together," she hints. "It's well worth it!"
Nothing beats the aroma of this speedy simmered pasta sauce...except its wonderful taste. To round out the meal, toss together a green salad and pop some garlic bread in the oven as shown in the photo at right. Or, steam asparagus for a swift side dish and pick up a chocolate cream pie from the supermarket.Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
Not only does this sauce freeze well, but it's a family favorite. I like to keep a few batches in the freezer. Then I simply cook the pasta, reheat the sauce and dinner is ready.Christi Gillentine, Tulsa, Oklahoma
My husband, Chet, and I both love sport fishingin fact, we even went fishing on our honeymoon! This tasty recipe is a favorite when we have leftover cooked salmon to use up. It's also great with canned salmon.Lisa Royston, Wasilla, Alaska
