Before Christmas we gave you a roundup of some of our dessert recipes from this past year, but everyone knows that you have to eat dinner before you get your dessert. We love coming up with new recipes for main dishes and supper, especially ones that are frugal, quick, practical, or some combination of all three. Here are some of the main dishes that we remember from this past year. Click through for a gallery of mouthwatering pasta, hearty meat and chicken, and some lovely fish. What are you cooking this weekend? Watch for more pasta recipes soon in our roundups of quick meals and vegetarian recipes.
