With the delectable combination of basil, tomatoes and mozzarella, this warm pasta medley makes a wonderful meatless side or main course. From Avon Lake, Ohio, Sandy Jenkins writes, “Everyone in our family loves this recipe, and it’s such a great way to use fresh tomatoes from your garden.”
I like to top this wonderful meatless meal with lettuce and serve it with extra picante sauce. It's quick, easy, filled with fresh flavor and definitely satisfying! —Lesley Tragesser, Charleston, Missouri
Asparagus is in season, so celebrate with this satisfying meatless dish from Genise Krause of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The tender spears pair beautifully with the creamy white sauce, which is tossed with fettuccine right in the skillet.
My son encouraged me to come up with a good veggie burger for him, and he gave this recipe a triple A+! Not only are they moist and flavorful, but they’re very easy to freeze. Now, like my son, I prefer them over meat burgers.

When pasta and veggies are on the menu, my sons get to the table fast. The frozen medley is so convenient, but sometimes I throw in peas, corn, broccoli or zucchini instead. —Amy Burns, Charleston, Illinois
My husband plants the garden and I harvest and cook the fruits of his labor. My favorite way to use plum tomatoes is this easy Margherita Pita Pizza. It is so good! —Rosemarie Weleski, Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania
A friend gave me an awesome recipe for manicotti...and I set out to make it a little healthier. Now, whether we have company, my husband asks me to serve this. Even our 2-year-old son loves it!
