Zucchini are big and plentiful here, and people often joke about using them up before they multiply! Sharing zucchini—and zucchini recipes—is a good neighbor policy. This colorful and easy recipe wins raves at church and school gatherings. —Martha Fehl, Brookville, Indiana
This hearty side dish will bring good taste and a dash of holiday color to any table, promises Mary Bauer in Wichita, Kansas. “It’s great with almost any entree.”
TIP: Adding a cup of leftover diced chicken to the vegetables makes this a quick lunch or meal-in-itself, suggests Mary.

For years, my mother made this savory-sweet bean dish. I was always thrilled when it was on the menu, and now I serve it often to my own family. You can vary the types of beans used, if you wish.
This is the only stuffing my family will permit on our holiday table. With Italian sausage and a blend of so many great flavors, it's almost a meal in itself. No wonder it won first prize in a local recipe contest!
