Healthy Summer 'Pasta' Salad
Pasta salad sometimes gets a bad reputation, especially in the summer, because so many people are trying to avoid carbs. But this recipe turns the notion of pasta salad on its head by replacing real pasta with zucchini ribbons. If prepped and cooked properly, they have the same texture and size of real pasta, maintaining the integrity of the pasta salad experience in a healthier way. And since it's served cold, you can prepare it ahead of time and use it for any occasion. See all zucchini recipes. Click here to see Pasta Salad, Please.

This elegant pasta dish is reminiscent of shrimp scampi with its light citrusy flavors.  This is easy to prepare but sophisticated enough for company.

Bolognese Sauce
This recipe is a truly classic Italian dish, and like any traditional should be, this one was passed down to me by my father. The key to this meat sauce is to follow the process and build layers of flavor as you go. Start with the aromatics, then add the seasonings, then the meat, then the tomatoes, and so on. There are two slightly unusual ingredients in this bolognese — the first is a touch of concentrated beef base (which really kicks the rich, meaty flavor of the sauce up a few notches), and the second is milk (swirling in a splash at the end rounds out the flavor and adds a luxurious feel to the dish). Finish each serving with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and serve alongside a hunk of crusty bread to mop up the sauce.

Today’s baked pasta recipe is one of my mum’s signature dishes. The original recipe came from an Egyptian friend mum met while dad was working abroad, but mum changed and added so much to the recipe (and she is still adding to it and changing it) that I think the recipe I am sharing today would probably have little to do with that original. The secret to this baked pasta recipe is the sauce. It is a modified béchamel sauce that takes the recipe to the next level. Not only is it pink as opposed to the traditional white but also it is so rich and full of flavor that you will want to eat it with a spoon. See all pasta recipes.

Pasta e Fagioli
Nothing warms the soul better than a bowl of hearty, hot soup. In my house, that usually comes in the form of minestrone, escarole and bean, or pasta e fagioli. Translating to pasta and beans, this robust dish is ideal for a one-pot dinner, with some crusty bread for dipping. The richness of the plum tomato paired with the weighty cannellini beans makes for a nice base. Blend with a bold combination of garlic and red pepper flakes and we're in business. Perfect for the chill in your bones during fall and winter nights, these simple steps will leave you cozy in no time. Click here to see Cozy Comfort Food Recipes.

Fall "Pasta Primavera"
Now, before you start in with the know-it-all, "primavera" actually means "spring" in Italian commentary — don't worry, I'm well aware. You see, it's just that I'm a big fan of cooking in season, and the ingredients traditionally found in pasta primavera don't exactly jive with what's fresh at the farmers' market this time of year. So instead, I created a pasta dish that celebrates the bounty fall has to offer — Brussels sprouts, parsnips, and butternut squash — and paired it with a nutmeg- and cinnamon-spiced Parmesan cream sauce.
