Written by
Simplify fall with one dish meals 1Fall feels like a new year - new classes in school, new friends and new activities. It's the perfect time for new meal ideas too! Put a new spin on family dinner favorites by adding unexpected ingredients such as California grapes. Change to a different pasta shape, sauce or cheese to create a new dish.
