9 Damn Good Reasons to Eat Pasta Tonight
Let the carbo-loading begin
Salads have a time and a place. But these days, we’re in the mood for hot, comforting pasta dishes--sometimes made lighter, sometimes not. Here are our nine go-to recipes to cure a midweek craving.
Mixed Greens Lasagna
Who says lasagna’s not healthy? Our green version even has kale.
Shrimp and Pasta Stew
A wintertime staple, this seafood dish simmers for only 30 minutes (not hours).
Fettuccine with Mushroom Alfredo
We cut the cream and upped the earthiness in our lighter Alfredo.
Lemon and Spinach Orzotto
This tangy weeknight dish is like risotto, but without the arm workout.
Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes
Flash back to summer with this easy, breezy, basil-laced wonder. To winterize, top with crispy pancetta.
Spaghetti with Peas
If you can’t find fresh peas for this veggie-packed one-pot meal, grab a bag of frozen. We’ll never tell.
One-Pot Mac and Cheese
The creamy comfort you desire, all made on the stovetop.
You don’t need any special equipment to make this pasta home--just ricotta, egg and Parmesan (plus a little bit of love).
Pasta with Chickpeas
The sauce in this dish from Spry Living gets a little help from pureed chickpeas.
