A good friend shared this recipe with me years ago, and I've used it often. With the creamy sauce and lovely look of this dish, even people who aren't very fond of spinach seem to enjoy it served this way.

I love to serve this dressed-up version of a tuna casserole. The green beans add nice texture, color and flavor. The first time I made this dish, my uncle asked for seconds even though tuna casseroles are not usually his favorite.

Our pasta began as a special, but due to its overwhelming popularity, we made it a permanent part of our menu. In the 9 years we've been open, we have become a favorite restaurant with locals and travelers alike because our food is not typical hotel fare.—Monroe Street Grille, Tallahassee, Florida
We grow herbs and vegetables in our garden, so I incorporate them into recipes whenever possible. This creation has tender turkey and mushrooms, onions and green pepper covered in a zippy tomato sauce. It's become a real favorite among our family and friends.

Whenever I serve this succulent golden turkey and delectable dressing, guests fill their plates and I'm buried in compliments. This recipe always makes a holiday dinner one to remember. It's well worth the time.

People are always surprised to hear that the "secret" ingredient in this special sauce is to add a touch of anise. The herb nicely complements the zippy Italian sausage and chunky tomatoes.—Margaret Allen, Abingdon, Virginia
While living in Canada, I sampled this colorful dish at a neighbor's. The following Christmas, I served it instead of my traditional turkey, and I received numerous compliments on it. I frequently substitute shrimp or sausage for the chicken...or add all three.

Even though I'm a "city boy", my co-workers have said I'm the most country city boy they have ever run across. Maybe that's because of the comforting, hearty recipes I share, like this ground beef dish.

Our three boys don't seem to mind the flavor mushrooms, green peppers and onions in my spaghetti sauce as much as the chunks. Through the years, I've learned to chop the vegetables very fine so there's nothing for them to search for and pick out.—LaVonne Hegland, St. Michael, Minnesota
My family has always enjoyed this dish. Mushrooms and red and green peppers add color and flavor to the chicken pieces in a creamy paprika sauce. Served over noodles, it looks and tastes delicious.

This is one of my favorite recipes. It features sirloin strips covered in a rich sour cream sauce with hints of caraway, mustard and tomato. It's a mouthwatering main dish for two people.—Robert Foust, Indianapolis, Indiana
