From Sequim, Washington, Marian Platt suggests her tasty burritos for a meatless but filling meal in minutes. “They're so easy to make and great for lunch. Or top with salsa, add a side of refried beans and call it dinner!”
My children liked to eat pizza with a lot of toppings, so I developed this recipe. With fresh tomatoes available year-round here, we still make it often, even though the kids are grown. It's a delightful change from usual meat-topped pizza.
My family goes meatless several nights a week, and this recipe is one of our favorites.
I usually puree a can or two of chipotles in adobo and freeze in ice cube trays so I can use a small amount when I need it. —Amy Bravo, Ames, Iowa
"Out of all our recipes for pasta, this simple meatless main dish is our favorite," writes Christa and Holley Hageman from Telford, Pennsylvania. "We can hardly wait for summer to arrive so we can use our garden-fresh tomatoes and minced basil in this recipe." The entree's Mediterranean flair comes from feta cheese, oregano, olive oil and lemon.
Tired of pasta weighted down by sauce? Opt for Linda Nichols' nutritious toss-up of marinated tomatoes, linguine and cheese. "This recipe comes from my husband's sister, Allison, and is in our family cookbook. It is one of our favorite summer meals," she says from Atlantic, Iowa. "The leftovers make a great cold pasta salad."
Using couscous instead of bulgur for tabbouleh really speeds up the process of making this colorful salad. Other quick-cooking grains such as barley or quinoa work well too. —Elodie Rosinovsky, Brighton, Massachusetts
I created this dish to make the most of an overabundance of yellow squash and zucchini from our garden. It was a hit with the whole family. It's so easy to ladle the homemade sauce over quick-cooking frozen ravioli for a satisfying dinner.
