creamy peto spaghetti bake

Hey ya'll!
First things first -- I'm doing GREAT! I'm waiting on a transplant -- we will hopefully be using my own cells. This is awesome and much less risky than a bone marrow transplant. But if we have to go that route, I have been fully matched with SEVEN (yes -- you read that right! God is SO good!) donors. I have been through three rounds of high dose chemo and am ready to get this show on the road! I feel great, just tired, and have only been hospitalized once due to infection.
But that's not what this post is about, so let's gt on with it!
 on YouTube (great daily vlogs & they are from Alabama to boot! Can I get a ROLL TIDE?!)
and the other day she shared a recipe.

Creamy pesto spaghetti bake.
These words will forever change your life.
I ain't even joking!

This is what I used. Yes, I know the Greek yogurt has fruit, but I didn't use it. Our grocery store just didn't have plain Greek yogurt without fruit.

Gotta salt that water before you put the pasta in!

Basically you just cook the spaghetti like you normally would. Mix the sauce,meat and noodles all together. Then you take about 1/4 cup pesto, 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 block of cream cheese and mix it all up. Put a layer of noodle/meat/sauce mixture down in a 13x9 baking dish, spread Greek yogurt/cream cheese/pesto mix over, and put another layer of noodle mixture down. Top with shredded cheese & bake for 25 minutes at 350.

You'll thank me later, I promise.
(And yes, I know that is a really haphazard recipe.....
but I never follow anything by the book anyway!)
