    This is a great meal that we eat here often in the winter time. With some dark bread and maybe a salad it is a really hearty meal, though we have been known to eat just this for dinner. The recipe is adapted from Amy Dacyczyn's "The Complete Tightwad Gazette"

    Recipe #74629

    This comes from a Mennonite Church cook book. It is simple but good and what I usually make when I get the tomato soup urge. I use commercial canned tomato juice and I do not add the salt because it has sufficient sodium.

    This comes from a friend's church cookbook. It's a fast, family friendly meal and the little meatballs do have rice sticking out making them look somewhat porcupine-ish. I offer this recipe for those of us who would rather whip out a fast week-night supper on the stove top.

    Recipe #237889

    This is a good pasta recipe that can be whipped up quickly on those busy nights when the kids have activities. When I have more time, I use fresh chopped tomatoes. The sausage is easier to slice if you stick it in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to firm it up a bit. Cook time includes pasta cooking time.

    Recipe #118362

    This is a recipe I adopted from Zenith's recipe collection when many unloved recipes were put up for adoption. All of her recipes were very good and this is no exception. Here's what Zenith had to say about this dish: A tasty vegetarian one-pot meal. (If you're not a vegetarian, you may wish to make this with chicken broth.)

    Recipe #55135

    This is one of the ways I make a simple quesadilla at home. Quesadillas made like this can be found at Mexican restaurants.

    Recipe #139060

    Great side dish for your Mexican fiesta. Try with Recipe #17130! It is as good as you'll find in any Mexican restaurant. Update: 1 teaspoon cumin was added to original recipe. I took some of my reviewers suggestion and added 1 teaspoon of cumin to the recipe. They were right. Cumin definitely adds to the taste.

    Recipe #17126

    This rice is so easy and so delicious!

    Try this savory twist on shirred eggs with crisply toasted English muffins or toast. From the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

    Recipe #352320

    A thrifty, nourishing soup from the Michigan Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947

    Recipe #317436

    My parents made this often when I was a child and it is still one of my favourite meals as an adult. Quick, tasty and cheap! We usually have this as a main dish with a salad and rolls. Measurements are approximate as I don't follow a recipe and it can be adjusted for personal preference. Can use whole, crushed or diced tomatoes

    Recipe #153448

    A snap to make and a breeze to freeze! This is a basic recipe for meatballs suitable for all uses. Feel free to be creative and add any additional spices or flavors you need to suit your tastes.

    Recipe #8060

    My Mom used to make this soup for us when we were growing up. It calls for 1/2 cup fine pasta but she always dumped a lot more pasta in than what was called for :) Serve with lots of parmesan cheese, we loved it!
