10 of the Quickest and Easiest Pasta Recipes you can have for Dinner

by Jacqueline Samaroo


Nothing says “quick and easy” like pasta. It pairs so well with a variety of sauces, cheeses, vegetables and meats that you could say “Pasta goes with everything!”
Pasta comes in a range of shapes and textures, differing as well in terms of the ingredients and methods used to make them. “Pasta pundits” will argue that it is imperative for you to select the right type of pasta to match your dish.
Everyone will agree, though, that if you need a tasty dish in a hurry, going with pasta is a safe bet!
