Complement the sauce-topped steaks with this vibrant side dish that cooks in the microwave in mere minutes. Fresh sugar snap peas get extra color from a jar of pimientos, which eliminates the need to chop sweet red pepper.

To accompany the main dish, serve Sesame Carrot Slices shared by Jacqueline Thompson Graves of Cumming, Georgia. The sweet carrot coins are cooked on the stovetop until crisp-tender and are dressed up with a mild mixture of butter, brown sugar and sesame seeds. "This carrot dish is a welcome change of pace," Jacqueline assures. "It can be made more or less spicy, whichever your taste dictates, by altering the amount of hot pepper sauce," she adds.

While this recipe's ginger sauce was designed for pasta, it's also good over green beans, pierogies or salmon. I've often tripled the sauce, then frozen the extra so I can whip this dish up even faster on busy nights.

My aunt once made potatoes like these for us. When I couldn't remember her exact recipe, I created this version. The lightly seasoned coating on the potatoes cooks to a pretty golden brown.
