The cream cheese is the star in these enchiladas... I've never met a person who didn't enjoy these and they are so simple to put together. You can cook your chicken breasts for these anyway you want... I recommend putting a chili powder/garlic rub on them and baking them. You can also boil them in water and garlic salt, but the baking produces tender, flavorful chicken! Toss in some red pepper flakes to the chicken/cheese mixture for some heat!! Can't beat it! Recently I didn't have a can of the green sauce on hand, and had a crisper full of tomatillos! I made Recipe #51630 and WOW it was super. It takes of course a little more work and effort but it was really good. If you like tomatillos, give it a try when you have some extra time on hand.
I adore angel hair pasta, and such a fine pasta doesn't always need a big sauce. Serve with some kind of cheese or "cheez" if you wish, sprinkled on top. My children like it with sliced olives. There are many versions of this simple recipe, this one I adapted from www.cookingnook.com. This would probably be good for 4 as a side dish or 4 for lunch with a salad.
My family loves grilled cheese so when they asked for it I wanted to try something new. This was the best grilled cheese, nice crunchy bread with melted cheese. I had to post this so I wouldn't forget it. Family loved it served with homemade milkshakes and fries. This is a great way to make a bunch at one time and the clean-up was nothing. ;)
This hearty Italian dish makes a simple spaghetti dinner without meat. Use homemade marinara sauce or a good bottled kind for an easy dinner. Add some garlic bread and a salad and you're all set. This recipe is from Good Housekeeping.
You won't find red sauce in this dish, just cheesy goodness. If you feel like indulging just a bit give this a try. You can easily double this recipe and make one for today and an extra to pop in the freezer for a heat-and-eat meal someday in the future.
I saw this prepared on Simply Delicioso with Ingrid Hoffman, "Miami Nights" episode. Delicious and filling! This prepares a lot, so you'll want to use a big pot - I like to use my 5-quart (sorry, international 'Zaar friends, I don't know why we still use that type of measurement). Sometimes I add a little bit of pepperjack cheese just before serving, which gives it an extra little "kick" in flavor!
Soba noodles are popular in japan and have a unique nutty flavor that compliment the broccoli in this dish very well. I first tried soba noodles when my roomate made them for dinner and fell in love with them. I hope you will too.
Pasta and veggies, two of my favorite things. This is really quick and tasty. It says that it will serve 6 and thats true if those 6 people are happy with a one cup serving. I serve it with a big green salad, a chicken breast half for each person and crusty bread.
This is a yummy and easy soup to throw together. Cheese compliments broccoli and potatoes so well. Ultimate comfort food when the weather starts to get colder. I love to serve it with homemade rolls or bread and a salad. I make it with skim milk to cut back on calories but feel free to substitute whole milk or half-and-half for a creamier soup. If I'm really short on time, I just throw in a can of diced, already cooked potatoes towards the end of the cooking time until they are heated through. If you want a thicker soup, just add desired amount of flour mixed until smooth with an equal amount of water. Mmmmmm....
This is an extremely flavourful curry. Vegetarians can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Kids really like this too (with less pepper). Serve with basmati as a side to a more elaborate dinner, or alone, for a simple meal.
