As a salesperson in the medical field, I'm often in hospitals during the lunch hour. One day, I was fortunate to sample this great dish. The chef wouldn't share the recipe, so I came up with my own tasty version.—Bibi Gromling, Flagler Beach, Florida
The nutty taste of this simple coating complements flaky fish fillets quite nicely. Complete the meal with parsley new potatoes and corn on the cob in season. Or, for a faster finish, serve with frozen French fries and mixed vegetables.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
We're so pleased to have finally gotten an asparagus bed established! Now when I have a bounty of those tender spears, I pull out this recipe. Orange and pistachios complement the asparagus beautifully. —Janice Mitchell
“This recipe was originally an entree with chicken and linguini,” notes Barbara Spitzer of Lodi, California. “I keep changing the ingredients to go with whatever else I’m serving for dinner, but my husband prefers this recipe.”
"This crunchy nut brittle is a favorite of my family," reports Cheryl Brungardt of Wheat Ridge Colorado. "It's a snap to prepare as a last-minute holiday gift. Be careful moving it in and out of the microwave, though, because the syrup gets very hot," she cautions.
It's impressive on a buffet, but this dish is not as complicated as it looks. Thin sweet corn pancakes are wrapped around fresh asparagus and topped with an easy cream cheese sauce and pistachios. The flavors blend so well!

Red cranberries and green pistachios in this ice cream cake delightfully showcase the colors of the season. My family prefers this refreshing homemade ice cream cake to store-bought desserts.
