I've been part of the Food Services staff at Appalachian State University for 33 years. One summer we created this flavorful sandwich that combines seasoned grilled chicken, Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms and onions. Thousands of students have enjoyed this wonderful sub since then.

I've been pleasing dinner guests with this delicious pasta dish that was based on one I found in a favorite Italian cookbook. The delicate cream sauce blends well with the colorful and hearty mix of vegetables. I chop the vegetables ahead and later prepare this dish in a snap.—Kerry Kerr McAvoy, Rockford, Michigan
