No time to cook? Got a hungry family to feed? In Dinners in a Dish or a Dash, award winning cookbook author Jean Anderson offers more than 275 great-tasting one-dish meals that are easy to prepare. Yet there's not one of yesteryear's "shelf magic" concoctions in the bunch, thank you.

Her secret? Today's supermarkets brim with a new generation of quality convenience foods-frozen chopped onions, peppers, and stir-fry mixes, packaged salas greens and slaws, elegant pasta sauces, cooked shrimp and chicken, frozen puff pastry, zesty salsas, and other spicy condiments, just to name a few. Anderson combines the best of these innovative foods with her impeccable cooking sense to make flavorful food in a flash.

Gone are the days of mystery "can of soup" casseroles. Dinners in a Dish or a Dash is filled with ides for modern, imaginative, and heathy diners. Those casseroles make a classy comeback in such dishes as Persian Lamb Pilaf with Mint, Lemon and Zucchini ans Scalloped Corn, Ham and Sweet Peppers. There's a group of simple sauces that can be prepared while the pasta water comes to a boil- try Fusili, Green Beans, and Tomatoes with Two Cheeses or Creamy Spinach Sauce. No punching up the seasonings, you can bring long-simmered flavor to favorite soups and stews such as Spanish Black Bean Soup and Zip-Quick Country Captain in a fraction of the time. Hot-weather blues? Whip up a cooling, no-cook Salmon and White Bean Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette or Chicken and Rice Salad with Pesto Dressing.

Dinners in a Dish or a Dash even shows how to equip your pantry, refrigerator , and freezer with the indipensable and "useful extra" groceries that make quick cooking a breeze. And taking a trip from busy restaurant kitchens, you'll learn how to "prep" chopped onions, minced garlic, chooped parsly, broccoli florets, and other essentials to have waiting in your refrigerator for impromptu meals.

These one-dish time savers are so great, you'll enjoy making and eating them even when you're not cooking against the clock.
