What are your favorite uses for fromage blanc?

Picked up a couple containers at the supermarket because it was on sale; I'm a sucker for markdowns! Think I'll make a flammeküchen with one container, but not sure about the other. Open to sweet or savory.
Ideas? Suggestions?

Savory noodle kugel sounds really yum! Thanks, Nancy!

Here are two savory kugel versions which are good templates, one a riff on a standard sweet Ashkenazi kugel, one on Italian maccheroni frittata:

Tartine has a fromage blanc bavarian recipe that's pretty delicious, especially when apricots are in season. It's cheesecake-y but much lighter.
