I have a pasta alfredo meal that is a hit with everyone, and you can add things to it to make it more flavourful, such as pesto, chicken, etc.
Boil 8oz fettucine pasta
When pasta is done, strain.
In a pot, mix 8oz low fat cream cheese, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 3/4 cup italian cheese (parmesan, mozzarella, etc - you can buy 6 cheeses in one bag, shredded at the grocery store, its made by Kraft).
Mix the above ingredients until thick.
When done, Serve pasta on top of fettucine, but I mostly put the fettucine in the pot with the sauce and mix it all together.
It only takes a couple of minutes to cook the sauce, stir it all the time and never leave it unattended.
