1. Sage & Cheese-Stuffed Chicken with Spinach & Tomatoes

We’re always looking for ways to transform a simple chicken dinner, so we figured, what's not to love about a gooey cheese filling and crispy sage leaves? We stuffed chicken breasts with Fontina cheese—it’s perfect for melting and has a nutty flavor. Sage leaves pressed into the chicken impart a lovely aroma and gorgeous visual. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

2. Creamy Goat Cheese Penne with Zucchini & Mushrooms

What’s the best way to get kids—well, anyone, really—to eat their veggies? Mix them with pasta and plenty of cheese, of course! The veggies in this dish—zucchini and mushrooms—are sautéed to silky perfection. And we doubled up on cheese with a combo of sweet, creamy goat cheese and salty, nutty Parmesan. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

3. Eggplant Parm Grilled Cheese with Spinach Salad

Grilled what??? That's right, Eggplant Parm Grilled Cheese! We've combined 2 favorite classics and put them on a grill for toasty, ooey-gooey perfection. Using a grill eliminates some of the wickedly delicious fat of frying (don't worry, you won't suffer!) and imparts a bit of smoky goodness. Plus whole-grain bread, while virtuous in theory, lends a nice crisp bite to the sandwich. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

4. Cheese Ravioli Florentine with Creamed Spinach

This dish is a textural paradise! Tender, cheese-filled ravioli (do we really need to say more?) are tossed with creamy spinach and topped with a juicy fresh tomato sauce and crisp croutons. As if that's not awesome enough, dinner can be on the table in practically no time. Once the ravioli are cooked, the meal comes together in minutes, leaving plenty of time to pour a few glasses of chilled white wine. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

5. Stuffed Goat Cheese Burger with Spinach-Orzo Salad

This inside-out, grass-fed cheeseburger has a goat cheese surprise hidden in the middle. Caramelized shallots sweeten in the skillet alongside the burgers, and get layered on top just before serving. A hearty Mediterranean-inspired salad of orzo, spinach, dill, roasted red peppers, and crumbled goat cheese bursts with flavor to round out the meal. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

6. French Onion Grilled Cheese with Caper Tarragon Green Beans

What's better than a steaming bowl of French onion soup? French onion soup in grilled cheese form! Sweet caramelized onions and gooey cheddar cheese are piled onto whole-grain bread, then the sandwich is pan-fried for a buttery richness. We continue the French theme with crunchy green beans tossed with vinegar and chopped tarragon to brighten it up. Bon appetit! Cook, relax, and enjoy!

7. Broccoli & Cheese Tortelloni with Spinach & Walnuts

We've found a pretty delicious ways to eat your greens. We've tossed cheesy, pillowy tortelloni with spinach and a nutty walnut-broccoli pesto to make for a dinner that's pretty hard to resist. And that's ok, because with each lemony, cheesy bite, you're loading up with vegetable goodness! Cook, relax, and enjoy!
