If you want spaghetti, but are eating gluten-free or trying to keep a lid on carbs, there's always spaghetti squash as a flavorful alternative. Subtly sweet, tender and satisfying, this is one colorful dish. —Clara M. Coulson, Washington Court House, Ohio
My kids invented this recipe by throwing some taco spice on leftover sloppy joes. I have to admit, they are delicious. Though they're excellent after school, we also love them as a tasty yet timely weekend lunch. -Darlene King, Estevan, Saskatchewan
In her kitchen in Ponca City, Oklahoma, LaDonna Reed spreads chicken breasts with a creamy filling, rolls them up, wraps them in bacon and bakes them. For a spicier version, she suggests that you try using sliced jalapeno peppers instead of green chilies.
"I adapted this recipe to suit our taste for spicy food," writes Debbie Purdue of Freeland, Michigan. "The ravioli taste like mini enchiladas. I serve them with a Mexican-inspired salad and pineapple sherbet for dessert."
“I love to cook and eat all types of food,” writes Barbara Willmitch from Younstown, Ohio. “But this tasty dish is a real hit with my daughter and her friends. It has a mildly Mexican-style flavor that both young and old can enjoy.”
