5 Great Recipes You've Gotta Try

Some of my favorite recipes I got online. Here are a few:
Fresh Basil and Garlic Chive Lasagna  Not only is this the best lasagna our family has enjoyed, it's also one of the easiest to make, which means we enjoy it more.
Balsamic Chicken, Spinach and Tomato Pasta Salad  Of course, I'd eat almost anything that was covered in balsamic vinegar, but this is seriously yummy, with the seriously good benefit of getting some dark greens into the diet. Plus, the whole "cooking a meal that doesn't turn your kitchen into an inferno in the summer" benefit is hard to pass up.
Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta  This is really quick to put together, really easy, and the kids like it. All good. You'll need the recipe for the cajun seasoning, which you can find here.
Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake  I know I mentioned this one a few weeks ago, but it definitely bears another mention. The strawberry season is almost over, and I don't think there is a better way to use up the rest of the season's fruit than by making a few of these cakes and enjoying them through the rest of the year. It's worth a mention that you can easily substitute sour cream for the yogurt. No one will know and it will be delicious.
Sweet and Sour Chicken  We've made this before and it won't be long before we make it again. Great use of those large packs of chicken breasts - it fed our family of 7 hungry eaters more than 2 whole meals (served with rice or tortillas).
