My mother has always been an avid cook, and my sister, two brothers and I were raised on this casserole.

I'm an old-fashioned country cook and love preparing recipes like this one that uses staples I normally keep on hand. Unlike most lasagnas, this one doesn't call for precooking the noodles. It's so simple my children sometimes make it after school and have it ready when I get home from work. -Angie Price, Bradford, Tennessee

My mother always prepared a holiday turkey much larger than our family could ever eat in one meal so there'd be plenty of leftovers. That's one tradition I've kept up. This hearty soup uses a lot of turkey and is great after watching football games and raking leaves. -Kathleen Harris, Galesburg, Illinois

Family and guests rave about this hearty, comforting potpie and its light flaky crust. The "secret" crust ingredients are Parmesan cheese and instant mashed potato flakes. It's a great make-ahead dish. On busy days, I prepare this entree in the morning and just bake it in the evening. -Cheryl Arnold, Lake Zurich, Illinois
