I'm a working mother with two young boys. Our family leads a very active life, so I make a lot of casseroles. It's so nice to have a hearty, nutritious side dish the kids will eat. Topped with cheese and french-fried onions, this tasty casserole is a hit at our house.

Who says rice has to be plain? Everyone will rave about the subtle flavors in this easy-to-assemble casserole. Fresh parsley and cheddar cheese lend to its terrific color, while celery salt makes it taste great.—Mary Alice Stefancik, Westlake, Ohio
With sausage, mushrooms, celery and the perfect blend of seasonings, this moist dressing is irresistible. I like to call it "Unstuffing" since it bakes separately from the turkey, which I do on the grill.

If you're looking for a filling side dish, this recipe fits the bill. It combines nutritious vegetables and hearty noodles in a delectable cream sauce. Whenever I serve this dish, it gets passed around until the pan is scraped clean.

I prepare this sweet potato dish mostly around the holidays, but it's good anytime. For added convenience, you can prepare it the night before and just pop it in the oven the next day. It's a joy to serve this delicious fluffy casserole to my five children and their families.—Fay Miller, Denham Springs, Louisiana
Our children would never eat carrots, and I could never find a recipe to please their taste buds. Then a friend shared this recipe, and sure enough...they loved it! Now they request this dish.—Sherry Johnson, Glenfield, North Dakota
As much as my family loves mashed potatoes, once in a while I'll want to dress them up by preparing this recipe. Spinach and chive give this potato dish wonderful flavor, not to mention terrific color.—Mary Allen, Orange, California
Compliments crop us as fast as zucchini vines when folks sample this casserole. Even those who generally don't like zucchini find they enjoy it in this savory side dish.

A neighbor passed this recipe on to me. I make the vegetable casserole for family dinners, reunions and potlucks, and the response is almost always the same when people taste it: "Can I have the recipe?" —Leora Clark, Lincoln, Nebraska
