We all love pasta. Give your weeknight staple new life with these inventive-yet-easy pasta dishes.

Eggs and Bacon Bucatini Nests

Morning flavors like eggs and bacon keep these baked nests totally breakfastworthy. Add twirled pasta, and they're ideal for any time of day.

Carrot Orzotto

Arborio rice may have met its match. Fast-cooking orzo and a savory carrot juice blend give you the creamy goodness of risotto in a fraction of the time.

Spring Onion Alphabet Soup

Take your taste buds on a trip down memory lane with a throwback pasta shape. This childhood favorite is all grown up, thanks to fresh flavors like basil, leek, and lemon.

Hot Honey Pasta and Beets

A peppery honey sauce brings sweet heat to orecchiette pasta, walnuts, and beets. You might want to double up on the sauce recipe -- we love it on toast, pizza, and fried chicken.

Bagel and Lox Rigatoni Salad

We're all about breakfast for dinner right now. This veggie-packed riff on a brunch classic starts with smoked salmon and a warm caper dressing. The mimosa is optional.

Asparagus-Ravioli Pie

Now this is pie. Layers of chicken-filled ravioli, asparagus, and lemon are piled high in this stunning spring dish.

Scones, perfected. Buttery, flaky, and perfect for any time of day, we've fallen in love with these divine scones.

Strawberry Shortcake Scones

The secret to these strawberry and cream scones? Ricotta cheese -- it keeps these sweets extra light and flaky.

Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Chip Scones

Cross a classic chocolate chip cookie with a scone, and you get the best of both worlds. Toasted coconut is finely ground and tossed into the batter for subtle flavor and sweetness.

Salted Pecan and Orange Scones

It doesn't get better than orange scones filled with salty pecan pieces. A sweet orange glaze takes them totally over the top.

Roasted Grape and Rosemary Scones

Roasting grapes caramelizes their sugars -- they're like raisins, but fresher and juicier. We love their savory sweetness paired with fresh rosemary.

Lavender-Honey Scones

Scones have never looked so pretty. Delicate lavender and sweet honey mean they taste good, too.

Give your Passover table a modern makeover with these new classics.

Modern-Day Brisket

Beef Bourguignon meets brisket in this red wine-braised showstopper. Finish the dish with our luxurious pan sauce.

Matzo Ball Soup

The sweetest way to elevate classic matzo ball soup? Plenty of caramelized onions and a homemade chicken stock.

Apricot Hamantaschen

This one's for the apricot-lovers out there. We've stuffed the classic cookie with a rich fruit and walnut filling.

Make the most of Tuesday night with these easy and delicious recipes.

Creamy Tuna-Noodle Toss

Craving comfort food? This creamy noodle toss is here for you -- and clocks in at under 500 calories per serving.

Chicken Sausage with Pineapple Relish

Our sweet and spicy relish takes store-bought chicken sausages from basic to the best. Your shortcut dinner never looked so good.

Pork and Potatoes with Minted Yogurt

Pork tenderloin may seem fancy, but this weeknight dinner is ready in just 30 minutes.

Farro, Chickpeas, and Greens

Make eating your greens easy. This flavorful salad packs a healthy punch, but all you'll taste is the garlic and feta dressing.
