We offer a plethora of pasta ideas, from quick dinners and tasty salads to vegetarian dishes and slow cooker lasagna. Whatever your needs -- potlucks, showers, birthday parties, picnics, tailgates, holiday dinners, or weeknight meals -- we have a pasta recipe that's perfect for you and your family. Our recipes shine with all types of flavorful ingredients, such as lemon, basil, sweet potatoes, shrimp, broccoli, apples, sausage, tomatoes, and chicken. We'll inspire you with skillets, lasagna, spaghetti, tortellini, noodle bowls, manicotti, ravioli, fettuccine, and our favorite ideas for macaroni and cheese. If it's a side dish you're after, we'll show you how to make a fresh, summery salad and provide all kinds of inviting recipes. We'll even show you how to make your own homemade noodles and the ins and outs of using a pasta machine. And what's pasta without a rich and hearty sauce to make it truly unforgettable?
