This is so easy to toss together on a busy weeknight, and I usually have the ingredients on hand. I start sauteing the onion and pepper first, then I prepare the instant rice. If you like, top it with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
I'm always looking for dinners that I can put together quickly. I re-created a favorite pasta dish from an Italian restaurant by using grocery store convenience products. Add crusty bread and a salad for a complete meal.
Just three ingredients are needed for this speedy appetizer from Christine Smoot of Childress, Texas. “These meatballs are so different from all the others…you will never carry any leftovers home,” she assures. “I catered my daughter’s wedding and served them as appetizers.” TIP: “You can also serve over rice for a main dish,” Christine suggests.
My family loves fish, and this super-fast and delicious dish is very popular at my house. Though it tastes like it takes a long time, it cooks in minutes under the broiler. We like it garnished with lemon wedges with couscous on the side.
“I’m not a big fan of fish unless it’s fried,“ confides Sherry Fletcher from Highland, Illinois. “But this recipe is so simple and good that it’s become a favorite! It’s also low in fat and packed with vitamin-rich veggies and Italian flavor.“
“I never liked salmon until my husband, Jim, created this healthy, delicious entrée,” confesses Pat Ockerman. “Now, all we have to do is mention to friends we're having salmon for dinner and we have happy guests!”
"Collecting cookbooks from area churches is my hobby, and this recipe was one of my discoveries," says Rena Laska of Bancroft, Wisconsin. "I made some changes to suit my family's tastes." The cheesy chicken dish comes together easily with a tube of refrigerated rolls.
"After enjoying a similar Italian dish at a restaurant, I decided to crate this recipe," says Michele Salazar. "My husband loves it." In her Plain City, Ohio kitchen she smothers a salmon fillet with artichoke hearts, olives and diced tomatoes.
