From Rayville, Louisiana, Mrs. Johnnye Masters shares a speedy stovetop dish using cooked turkey. "The spicy sauce is so quick to stir together because it uses convenience foods such as mustard, ketchup and hot pepper sauce," she confides.
"This authentic Italian spaghetti sauce recipe is a longtime family favorite," relates Lillian Di Senso of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. "Very hearty with lots of meat and a zippy flavor, it's wonderful over a plateful of your favorite pasta."
Pretty parsley pinwheel top this hearty casserole filled with a saucy mixture of broccoli, ham and onion. "It also can be made with asparagus instead of broccoli," suggests Sharon White of Morden, Manitoba. "With a green salad, it's a satisfying supper."
"This zesty Italian soup is sure to become a favorite with your guests - just as it has with mine," promises Nancy Dyer of Grove, Oklahoma. "The spicier the seasoning in the sausage, the better the soup."
Try these tempting tacos when you're looking for a change of pace from regular tacos. A mild zing from the lime juice in the marinade for the chicken comes through after grilling. I like to serve them with salsa, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

This is a favorite dish in our family. I came up with this dish myself because the traditional version takes forever to make. I just throw a few ingredients together, pop the dish in the oven and forget it.Robin Stevens, Cadiz, Kentucky
Convenience items, including bottled barbecue sauce and canned pineapple and cranberry sauce, speed preparation of this sweet and tangy main dish. It's a snap to throw together, yet tastes like it took a lot of work. My family loves its Hawaiian flavor.

I've been making these spicy and satisfying sandwiches for more than a dozen years. On occasion, I substitute country sausage for the Italian sausage and they taste just as good. Served with a zesty sauce for dipping, they're my family's favorite.

In Bluffton, Indiana, Fancheon Resler reaches for bacon and canned corn to makes this subtly sweet stuffing that combines corn bread and white bread. The moist mixture is terrific with turkey but just as good served solo.
