Earlene Ertelt of Woodburn, Oregon found the recipe for Pasta with Tomatoes in the newspaper a few years ago and has used it frequently ever since. "My husband, Charles, and I are busy on our farm and with other activities, so quick and easy dishes like this one are very important to me," Earlene asserts.
My husband and I have two young daughters, but we often eat breakfast before they get up. This meal is one of our favorite "breakfasts for two". It's tasty and fun and looks great on the table.Kathy Scott, Lingle, Wyoming
These cheesy, hearty potatoes are a super morning side dish. Because they take no time to fix, I prepare them often for me and my husband. They go great with just about any type of entree.Judy Dupree, Thief River Falls, Minnesota
I CREATED this recipe because my family is so fond of corn. I tried to add a little zip to it with the marinade and I think I succeeded.
I double or triple the recipe for potlucks or when we have dinner guests. In either case, someone's always sure to ask for the recipe.

MY NIECE suggested I try cooking squash and potatoes together. I found that potatoes really do enhance the flavor of squash.
I made up this recipe, and it turned out to be a keepera great side dish for any entree and a complement to other vegetables as well.
MY SISTER introduced me to this recipe several years ago because she knows I love blue cheese.
This dish is a simple way to dress up asparagus, giving it a tangy taste altogether different from the usual cheese sauce. I make it every spring when we have fresh homegrown asparagus. Leona Luecking

I LOVE POTATOES prepared in any way. I came up with this recipe by combining two recipes for broccoli and potato "latkes".
These are easy to prepare and make a delicious side dish.

IF YOU like carrots, here's a great recipe. It's easy to prepare and healthy. My mother made it every holiday, using either regular or golden raisins.
This was one of the first recipes I tried on my husband when we were newlyweds. He was skeptical because he didn't like raisins, but now this is one of his favorite salads.
