  3. 3
    Cavatappi with Spinach, Garbanzo Beans, and Feta
    Dress up plain cavatappi (spiral-shaped) pasta with fiber-rich spinach and garbanzo beans, then add distinct Mediterranean flavor with feta and heart-healthy olive oil. Serve with buttered garlic toast.
  4. 4
    Cheese Ravioli with Toasted Walnuts
    Enhance the flavor of store-bought cheese ravioli by topping with toasted walnuts, lemon juice, parsley, and Parmesan cheese. Pair with a bagged green salad for a super-quick supper.
  5. 5
    Curried Couscous with Broccoli and Feta
    Using bagged broccoli florets and preshredded carrots all but eliminates the prep with this vegetarian entrée. If you want to add meat to the couscous, use chopped chicken or thin strips of flank steak.
  6. B
    Strawberry Granita
    This frozen dessert requires no ice-cream maker--just freeze the mixture in a pan, and scrape with a fork. If you'd like to spruce up the granita, top with chopped or halved fresh strawberries and grated lemon zest.
