When I have no idea what to make for dinner, and no desire to hit the grocery store, I am always so relieved to find a box of pasta in the pantry! Pasta dishes are so handy when you want to use up bits of this and that from the produce drawer in the fridge. They also save the day when you need to knock out a meal quickly, or feed a crowd affordable. Pasta is the best!
Since I already put together a collection of the Best Pasta salad Recipes for you, I opted not to include any of those here. Instead I have made you a comprehensive list of the Best Pasta Dishes; the kind that will make your dinner-cooking self swoon.
There are several lasagna recipes to choose from, including a Spicy Skillet Lasagna recipe that takes the time out of everyone’s favorite pasta dish. I added several soups, too. That Easy Minestrone is perfect for making in big batches and then toting along for lunch all week! If you want something a little different, definitely try the One Pot Creamy Pumpkin Pasta or the Jalapeno Popper Mac and Cheese. You really can’t go wrong!
