As nice as a crisp salad or lighter meal can taste, sometimes you just crave a creamy sauce and savory, rich spices. Chowing down on those types of dishes can feel indulgent, and we certainly don’t recommend eating them with too much frequency — but that rarity is also what makes them all the more enjoyable. Each time you bite into a cheesy, buttery, or otherwise ultra-smooth recipe, you know you’re treating yourself to something truly special.
Whether you’re in the mood for pasta, soup, potatoes, or a decadent dip, we’ve got plenty of delightfully filling recipes for you to choose from. Several of them can also be used for perfect additions to a dinner party you’re attending or family potluck night. That is, if you feel like sharing them! The only problem will be deciding which one to try first. Take a look to see which ultra-rich, creamy recipe you’ll want to make for dinner ASAP!
