To create a light main course, I borrowed bits from different recipes, including my mom's lasagna. No one suspects that the creamy filling is made with tofu. It's easy to prepare, and my toddlers love it. —Carolyn Diana of Scottsdale, Arizona
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!

Stroll the farmers market and you'll find veggies and cheeses you might not know what to do with. Why not pull them together in one harmonious bunch and make this go-to lasagna when you crave a twist on an Italian favorite? —Samantha Neal, Morgantown, West Virginia

Meat loaf will be wearing new accessories this year - spinach, carrots, zucchini and whole grains. Grind the nuts in a food processor but be sure to add a little flour so you don't end up with nut butter. —Susan Preston, Eagle Creek, Oregon
A bold, flavorful garlic and basil pesto sauce is an awesome change of pace from traditional tomato-based pizza sauce. Roasted vegetables are a fantastic topping. Whenever I serve it alongside a standard meat pizza, this one's always the first to go!
