Glenda Holmes of Riley, Kansas gets this satisfying sausage-and-bean stew started in the slow cooker, then spends the afternoon curled up with a good book. "It's an effortless meal that tastes great," she relates.
"This is an extremely quick and very tasty pizza that my family loves," says Jennifer Zukiwsky of Glendon, Alberta. "It's a bit different because you use buttermilk biscuits instead of pizza dough. It makes enough for a large family and is great for company."
SERVED WITH buttered noodles and some fruit, this delicious, satisfying "meal in one" is easy to prepare.
The green of the squash remains true to color through the cooking process, so it's pretty on the plate. It's a favorite when I'm cooking for just the two of us. —Linda Gaido

One day when I was preparing Italian sausages, I decided to do something different. After browning them, I put the sausages in a pot and added other ingredients, ending up with this stew that my husband and I like very much. We have four grown children and will soon celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary!
"No one can believe you don't cook the spaghetti before adding it to this family-pleasing fare," comments Margery Bryan of Royal City, Washington. "I love to make it for company to show them how easy it is."
I received this recipe from my sister-in-law and use it all the time. The addition of pepperoni and cinnamon makes it extra special. My family says it's the best spaghetti sauce ever! —Wendy Prevost, Cody, Wyoming
“This is a delicious stew,” says Carma Blosser of Livermore, Colorado. “The sausage and turnips give it really special flavor.” A slice of crusty bread makes a great mop to clean up any remaining broth!
