I always try to have my daughter, son-in-law and my grandchildren over for this supper. They make me so happy by saying, "That was so good!" or by just going to fill up their bowls. It's a good-for-you hit. —Pam Corder, Monroe, Louisiana
"This is without a doubt the yummiest stew I've ever tasted," informs Lorna Irving of Holberg, British Columbia. "My mom often made it for special occasions when I was growing up. It's been popular with our family for the past 40 years. You can make it ahead and reheat before serving."
With just 15-minutes of prep, you'll be out of the kitchen in no time. This deliciously low-fat dish gets even better served with reduced-fat sour cream and chopped cilantro. Brandi Castillo - Santa Maria, California
Nancy Cox of Martinsville, Indiana spices up autumn evenings with this zippy stew, a blend of Italian turkey sausage, seasoned tomato broth, pasta and veggies. "This reheats well and tastes even better the next day," she says.
Wine lends a warm background flavor for this satisfying take on a traditional French stew. Lynn Stein in Joseph, Oregon uses low-fat mashed beans to thicken her broth and boost nutrition. Serve with garlic bread and dinner's done!
I rely on my slow cooker to prepare this chili-like specialty. It's packed with turkey sausage, pasta and vegetables. My gang gobbles it up without realizing they're eating healthy. —Sarah Bowen of Upland, California
