Yum! A few recipes I've tried

Taco Pasta
 This is the recipe as pinned: 3/4 bag ziti noodles,1 lb of ground beef, 1 pkg taco seasoning, 1cup water, 1/2 pkg cream cheese, 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese -- boil pasta until just cooked, brown ground beef & drain, mix taco seasoning & 1 cup water w/ ground beef for 5 min, add cream cheese to beef mixture, stir until melted & remove from heat, put pasta in casserole dish, mix in 1 cup cheese, top pasta/cheese with beef mixture & gently mix, top w/ remaining cheese, bake at 350* uncovered for 30 min

Instead of putting in a casserole dish, though, I stir cooked pasta and cheese into the meat mixture and stir until cheese is melted. The whole family loves this!

 Creamy garlic pasta

From the original website (linked in recipe name):
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp butter
¼  tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 cups chicken stock
½ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
¾ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1-2 minutes. Mix in the butter until melted. Add the salt, pepper and chicken stock. Raise the heat to high and let it come to a boil. 
Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate. Reduce the stove to medium heat and mix in the Parmesan until completely melted. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and parsley. Serve immediately.

This is SO freaking amazing. Seriously, I would eat this every day if I could. 
1/2 c Parmesan cheese,1 c Greek yogurt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt 1/2 tsp pepper,spread mix over 4 chicken breasts, bake at 375 45 minutes

This one was better than I expected! 

This is a long recipe, with many steps, so instead of copying here I linked the original post in the recipe name. This is a little more work than I usually like for a weeknight dinner, but it is SO worth it. I don't follow the exact list for spices in the flour mixture and just use whatever is on hand. The honey garlic soy sauce is fantastic. Seriously. This would be equally as delicious on chicken, too, if you don't eat pork.
