I make this recipe for almost every holiday and often take it to potlucks. Usually, I make the pilaf ahead to allow the flavors to blend and then reheat it in the microwave before serving. This also makes for more room in the oven and less chaos when you are putting out a big holiday meal. —Dianne Bettin, Truman, Minnesota
“These stuffed cabbage bundles make a delicious alternative for the real thing, especially during meatless holidays,” writes Linda Evancoe-Coble of Leola, Pennsylvania. “They’re also a good source of fiber.”
A cozy comforting home-cooked meal doesn't have to take hours to make, writes Linda Humphreys of Buchanan, Michigan. "I've had this recipe for 30 years. Since my kids, grandkids and guests of all ages request it often and it takes only about 30 minutes to make, I have it at least once every other month!"
"This microwave dish is great when time is short," writes Joan Hallford of North Richland Hills, Texas. "I sometimes use cooked wild rice instead. Add a vegetable and crusty rolls for a delicious dinner."
This hot dish is convenient because it's made in the microwave. It has nice flavor and looks good, too. Even though I've been making it for more than 10 years, I still get requests for it.—Mary Bondegard, Brooksville, Florida
This creamy casserole is always one of the first to go in a buffet line. When I want to indicate serving size, I use sliced cheese squares on the top rather than shredded cheese.—Ferne Carter Chapman, Tacoma, Washington
