Formerly the casserole, one dish meals have been updated to meet the needs of today's hectic time schedules. One dish options range from skillet stir-fries to the traditional baking dish or Dutch oven. Add a fresh salad and you have created your own super simple gourmet meal.

Pasta fits today's busy lifestyles. It is quick to cook, low fat, inexpensive, and can be served with an almost endless variety of toppings and fillings. From cold pasta salads to warm main dishes, pasta helps satisfy our need for healthy and nutritious meals.

Tossed salad seems a bland reflection to our salads of today. With hundreds of items in the produce section, the beginnings of salad are vast, exciting and often unpredictable.
