Can't decide whether to cook vegetables or pasta for a side dish? Try combining them in this medley. It received rave reviews at our volunteer fire department meeting. Now, I make it for other covered-dish suppers.
Meet the Cook: As a pastor's wife, I cook for crowds often. This dish's always a hit. My own family - we have a daughter, 11, and a son, 10 - thinks the potatoes are a must with London broil or marinated grill chicken breasts. I frequently prepare them for guests, too. The recipe is very adaptable, and the results disappear.

Whenever I serve my Corn Balls, it's just about certain someone will ask for the recipe—I've gotten more requests for it than any other I've ever tried.
I usually make them when we have company as a nice change-of-pace side dish. They're great with ham, steak or roast beef.
My husband and I have two young children, 3 and not quite 1. I grew up on a dairy farm. Today, we live on a small farm where I tend to chickens.
These scrumptious spuds have pounds of meal appeal! Stirred together with sour cream, cottage cheese , onion and almonds, they offer a rich texture and nutty taste that will have folks coming back for more, assures Veronica Teipel of Manchester, Missouri.
Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before!
My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.
You’ll have a healthy red and green holiday with this full-flavored side dish. Bright, roasted tomatoes top crisp-tender beans with sweetness. Grated cheese adds protein and taste.—Michaela Rosenthal, Woodland Hills, CA
Even my kids eat their veggies when I serve this nicely spiced skillet. It's pretty and absolutely scrumptious. Sometimes, I turn it into a main dish by stirring in cubes of cooked chicken. —Jennifer Schmidt, Dickens, Texas
