Who on Earth does not love pasta? Anyone who says they don’t is not to be trusted. Pasta is wonderful food, truly one of life’s culinary pleasures whether the sky is grey and gloomy or cloudless and shining with sun. Boiled or baked, made by hand or cooked from a box, with jarred marinara or covered with your grandma’s red sauce, it is always a perfect time for pasta — a classically simple and humble food that is incredibly versatile and can be made to please any number of appetites.
We reached out to our Culinary Content Network of food bloggers and asked them which pasta recipes they love the most. Pasta is perfect for speedy lunches and easy dinners as well as for show-stopping dinner party dishes.
