Judy speeds up her mother-in-law’s tetrazzini by using jarred Alfredo sauce, canned mushrooms and
onion powder. We loved the peas’ pop of color, the hint of white wine and the creamy, tangy taste. —Judy Batson, Tampa, Florida
Topped with crushed corn chips, shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes, this marvelous meal-in-one is as pretty as it is tasty. I serve it to company along with bread and dessert, and it always gets compliments. Dana Wise
My mother has always been an avid cook, and my sister, two brothers and I were raised on this casserole. When I polled our family to see which recipe I should share, this fresh-tasting, well-seasoned chicken casserole came out on the top of the list. I know you'll enjoy is as much as we do.

This comforting casserole is made with leftover cooked chicken and canned soup. It's so easy to assemble. Once you pop the dish in the oven, you'll have some time to take care of other things.—Martha Sue Stroud, Clarksville, Texas
Mother frequently made this comforting casserole when I was growing up. Our family would scrape the pan clean. Chicken, cheese and zippy green chilies are a mouthwatering mix.Jerri Moror, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
This hearty stuffed pasta dish will feed a crowd. Tangy tomato sauce tops manicotti that's filled with a mouthwatering blend of Italian sausage, chicken, spinach and mozzarella cheese. Be prepared to share the recipe!Pat Schroeder, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
Meet the Cook: As a cattle rancher, my husband's a big fan of beef. For him to comment on a poultry dish is rare. But he always tells me, "I love this casserole!" I first tasted it at a potluck; now, I fix it for my family (we have a 3-year-old daughter) once or twice a month, and I'm asked to take it to most every get-together.

I'm usually in the kitchen most of the day making some kind of dish for my family, neighbors or the local fire department to pass around and try. My husband is a firefighter in our town, and this casserole is a favorite there. Krista Davis-Keith, New Castle, Indiana
My daughter, Lisa Sand, brought 10 pans of these yummy chicken enchiladas to my wedding reception and they were the biggest hit of all the food. So many guests wanted the recipe, we sent it out with our Christmas cards. —Pat Coffee, Kingston, Washington
