In the past few years, I’ve been trying to incorporate more whole grains in our dinners. Bulgur is one of my favorite grains to work with because of its quick cooking time. Besides being high in fiber and rich in minerals, it has a mild, nutty flavor that my kids enjoy. —Maria Vasseur, Valencia, California
I do a lot of catering, and this easy rice casserole always gets rave reviews from clients as well as friends and family. It is loaded with turkey, broccoli and water chestnuts. I'm asked for the recipe over and over.

I'm a health fitness specialist and personal trainer, so I know how important it is to make smart food choices to fuel my day. These fast and filling tostadas are packed with lean protein, fiber and a good dose of veggies. Have them any night of the week. —Julie Huntington, Memphis, Tennessee
I came up with this "short-cut" lasagna one day when the dinner hour was fast approaching and all I had in the freezer was some frozen ravioli. Now I make it often, and my husband and son devour it.

My family likes these enchiladas so much that they request a turkey dinner several times a year just so I'll make this dish with the leftovers. I usually double it because I feed three growing boys—two teenagers and my husband! —Beverly Matthews, Pasco, Washington
You don't need to cook the tender homemade meatballs or boil the egg noodles separately, so you can easily stir up this savory soup in no time. I usually double the recipe for our family of seven. —Carol Losier
