9. Gluten-Free Northern Italian Autumn Minestrone

"Typical autumn flavors from Northern Italy mixed with gluten-free pasta will warm you on a cool evening," says recipe creator Buckwheat Queen. "Use any shape pasta you desire, even broken spaghetti works. If desired, the soup without the pasta will freeze wonderfully. Just cook the pasta in the soup once thawed."

Quick & easy - great for a weeknight dinner."

4. Easy Hand-Held Chicken Pot Pies

A quick and easy way to use up chicken leftovers. Home cook ColoradoMountainMan says, "Really a good way to use left-over / extra roasted chicken. I like the biscuit idea better than other prepared dough items. I like to make these up and freeze (cooked) for later."
