A colorful mix of zucchini, onion, celery, green pepper and tomato is at its tasty best in this simple side dish. Mom came up with this recipe as a way to use up her garden vegetables. It has the taste of summer.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
When your conventional oven is filled with the turkey and side dishes, these dressed-up brussels sprouts can be prepared in the microwave. I think you will agree the cheese topping makes these sprouts special enough to include in a holiday meal.

We're so pleased to have finally gotten an asparagus bed established! Now when I have a bounty of those tender spears, I pull out this recipe. Orange and pistachios complement the asparagus beautifully. —Janice Mitchell
The first time I tasted this casserole was at a church supper, and I immediately asked around to find out who made it. I asked the cook to share her recipe, and it has become one of my family's most-requested dishes.

My family especially enjoys this lovely, slightly sweet side dish. It looks so pretty with the harvest colors of chopped green and red peppers and orange slices tucked in with the rice.

The whole family loves Mom's tender beef and hearty noodles. Simmered in beef broth, the noodles taste wonderfully old-fashioned. Mom has to make a huge batch since even the grandchildren gobble them up.
