Crisp-tender veggies and soy sauce are combined with linguine noodles in this colorful main dish. "I got this recipe from a radio program several years ago," recalls Sara Tatham of Plymouth, New Hampshire.
The colorful side dish shared by Mary Tallman of Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin features sweet pineapple, crunchy vegetables and refreshing cilantro in a tangy dressing with pasta. It requires just 15 minutes of prep time, so it’s perfect for a quick lunch or on-the-go dinner.

"In this delicious main-dish salad, savory strips of broiled streak are lightly dressed along the water chestnuts, mushrooms and onions, then tossed with crisp snow peas," details Janeen Kilpatrick of Fairbury, Illinois. "Ketchup and ginger add a bit of zip to the sweet dressing."
"We raise spaghetti squash in our garden, and I enjoy coming up with different ways to use it," writes Wanda Ivan of Salina, Kansas. "We like the colorful mix of tomatoes, carrot, broccoli and snow peas in this microwave dish."
If you crave Asian food or just want to add some excitement to suppertime, give this exotic pasta from our Test Kitchen a try. The linguine with crunchy veggies, peanut butter and sesame seeds can be served warm or cold. For more zip, stir in an extra splash of hot pepper sauce.
A tangy dressing makes this refreshing vegetable blend especially pleasing. You could serve it as an appetizer or a side dish. Sometimes I use thinly sliced carrots, zucchini or pearl onions.
