I first taste the wonderful combination of Alfredo sauce and pesto at a restaurant, and that inspired me to add all kinds of different flavors to Alfredo sauce. The basil pesto is still my favorite and I've used that combination in this amazing dinner. Let your company be impressed and don't tell them how easy it was to make.Kelly Williams, Forked River, New Jersey
Rita Brooks of Norman, Oklahoma loved this recipe so much, she spent weeks tracking it down after trying it at a meeting. “I’ve been making it for years and have shared it with friends and family. Hope you enjoy it, too!”
This zippy entree from Athena Russell of Florence, South Carolina looks and tastes special, but it’s a cinch to make. “When I get home from work, I like to prepare quick dishes, and this is one of our favorites,” Athena says.
Pretty and healthy, this looks like it came from an Italian restaurant. When I’m in a rush, I use a jarred tomato sauce and omit the tomatoes and seasonings. You can also fix this ahead and reheat it for convenience. —Nancy Deans, Acton, ME
This refreshing, colorful salad is my mother's recipe. It features an uncommon but tempting mixture of vegetables. Mother always cooks with wonderful flair, and everything she makes is delicious as well as lovely on the table.

“My mother-in-law created this recipe after enjoying a similar dish on a trip to Denver,” writes Winnie Struse of Hereford, Arizona. A medley of artichokes, red pepper and chicken create a lovely entree when paired with pasta and a creamy sauce.
"One day, I needed to have dinner ready when we walked in the door after work and school. So I altered a skillet dish that my family likes into this delicious slow cooker meal, and it was ready and waiting when we got home. It's perfect for a weeknight meal but is nice enough for company, too." —Judy Armstrong, Prairieville, Louisiana
