I enjoy cold pasta salads and rice salads, so I decided to make one with orzo, a rice-shaped pasta. Feel free to add other favorite veggies—like asparagus and green beans—and serve with rolls or pita bread.—Valonda Seward, Coarsegold, California
Once when expecting a visit from a college friend, I wanted to serve something a little different. So I came up with this lasagna. It's perfect for company because it can be assembled in advance.

Carole Floyd from Exmore, Virginia can just about guarantee rave reviews for this creamy seafood dish! “To dress up the meal, I like to serve it with steamed fresh asparagus or a tossed salad and French bread,” she adds.
Carole’s seafood dish also works well with cubes of flounder, salmon or some other tasty fish, she says.
Effortless and delicious: That’s exactly how we like Monday-through-Friday meals to be, and this one fits the bill perfectly. The lightly coated pasta and veggie mixture tastes like it came from an Italian restaurant, but it’s ready in no time for just a few dollars a serving. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen
"I received this recipe from a friend," explains Heather Richardson. "It can even be served as a light dinner with toasted garlic bread." The St. Paul, Virginia reader serves the low-fat salad on a bed of fresh greens.
