My husband and I really enjoy fresh asparagus. So we were thrilled when I found this recipe for asparagus and juicy pork slices smothered in a snappy ginger sauce. —Kathleen Purvis, Franklin, Tennessee
A colorful combination of vegetables, tender pork strips, flavorful seasonings and crunchy peanuts makes this main dish appealing even to kids. Over rice, it's a fresh-tasting complete meal.

A frozen pasta-vegetable blend and ramen noodles make Lois McAtee's specialty a cinch to toss together. "This filling meal is so easy to fix that teenagers can make it themselves," she writes from Oceanside, California.
This was a spur-of-the-moment experiment when we wanted something nice and filling, but also easy. I had steak, peppers and onion on hand, and this is what my mind created. We make it often. For something different, try it in tortillas for fajitas. —Rochelle M. Dickson, Potwin, Kansas
I like to serve this stir-fry over penne pasta, but feel free to use whatever variety you have on hand. The recipe also makes a filling meatless dish when you leave out the beef strips.—Elaine Norgaard, Penn Valley, California
