Our family adores autumn and anything to do with pumpkins! We all love this recipe because it is warm and comforting. It's so easy to put together on a cool fall evening after a day of work or raking leaves. —Mandy Howison, Renfrew Pennsylvania
If you want your kids to happily eat their eggplant, serve it in this lovely layered casserole. Our whole family enjoys it. Always a popular potluck item, it's a great company dish, as well. —Carol Mieske, Red Bluff, California
Tasty and filling, this potpie is a perfect way to use up leftover chicken or turkey. It takes some time to prepare, but luckily, I have five children at home to help me. This dish travels well and is ideal to take to a potluck or family reunion.
My son-who is now 27-brought home this recipe for moussaka (a classic Greek entree) when he had a sixth-grade assignment about Greece. It earned high marks when we made it for his class. Men love the hearty meat-and-potatoes combination.
On cool nights, nothing hits the spot like a steaming homemade potpie—especially ones you can get on the table fast. The pinwheel crust on top has become my signature. —Kristin Shaw, Castleton, New York
It's almost hard to believe that this traditional, mouthwatering dish comes from the microwave. While the lasagna cooks, use your oven to bake some rolls or bread to complete the meal.—Betty Ruenholl, Syracuse, Nebraska
If you like Mexican food but are watching your diet, try this tasty bake. It takes advantage of ground turkey and reduced-fat cheese without sacrificing flavor.—Mrs. Gertrudis C. Miller, Evansville, Indiana
"We really like the spicy flavor of this seafood dish," notes Collette Conlan of Burleson, Texas. "You can give it even more zip by increasing the amount of hot pepper sauce. If your family doesn't like the taste of curry, try substituting paprika instead."
