Topped with the toasty texture and flavor of hazelnuts, this pasta makes an easy, earthy weeknight dinner. I serve it with an herb lettuce salad and white wine. —Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida
I love to cook and come up with new recipes. I serve this dish at least once a month and sometimes more. For a different twist, I'll occasionally add a scrambled egg or use soy sauce instead of the rice vinegar. —Sonya Labbe, Santa Monica, California
"I make this dish often because it is so quick and easy to prepare," writes Darlene Brenden from Salem, Oregon. "My family likes the flavor the sugar snap peas and almonds add. Sometimes I top it with chow mein noodles for extra crunch."
All it takes is four ingredients and 20 minutes to have this hearty dish from Anne Nock of Avon Lake, OH ready for the table. Chicken, snap peas and pasta star in this dish, and the garlicky sauce ties it all together nicely.
We grow pea pods, and I wanted to use them in something other than stir-fries...this fit the bill! I've carried it to church potlucks and received compliments on its pretty orange glaze and fresh taste.
-Josie Smith of Winamac, Indiana
My friends thought it was a little strange that I packed a wok when I came to visit them. That was, until I prepared this wonderful shrimp and scallop pasta. It makes supper with those I care about a special occasion now. —Debbie Campbell, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Complement the sauce-topped steaks with this vibrant side dish that cooks in the microwave in mere minutes. Fresh sugar snap peas get extra color from a jar of pimientos, which eliminates the need to chop sweet red pepper.
For a deliciously different salad, I suggest this lightly dressed version without lettuce. It's especially good when I use fresh bounty from our garden. My friends and family love vegetables, so when I serve this colorful salad, it goes fast!
“I got this good-for-you recipe about 10 years ago from a friend,” says Caroline Elliott of Grants Pass, Oregon. The tender shrimp and crisp-tender veggies are coated with a mild, lemony sauce that makes this dish a colorful keeper.
“I found this recipe years ago in a magazine and just had to try it that same night," recalls Buffy Sias of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. "Now, it's become a family favorite, and even my toddler cleans her plate and asks for seconds!”
