Feeding a crowd of hungry hombres? Pasta's your answer. Sauce it, cream it, even salad it. Just make enough for everyone, or you could find yourself staring down the barrel of a fork.
The name is only half the story! I take al dente farfalle (bowties cooked just right), add some artichoke hearts and cannellini (white) beans, and toss the whole thing in butter and sautéed garlic. Delicious!
This is a basic fun pasta dish and can be made with many variations. It has vibrant flavors and can be thrown together in a couple minutes. I make this for my family and it is always a hit.
The name says nothing about what this recipe is. It's not Canadian. It's not French. It's not surprising. It's epically Italian.
This is a very savory, filling pasta salad. It is always a hit at BBQs.
This makes a great side dish, but once the kids try it, it will become their main dish. The directions were made simple enough for a ten year old or a real beginner cook wanting to go beyond take-out or boxed dinners. Great for pot luck dinners too.
This recipe is great for any family that has a tight schedule and still wants to eat together with great food.
Canned crab, shrimp, and tuna fill out this addictive pasta salad. This is a great cold salad to take to a picnic or barbecue.
This is an easy way to have spaghetti while camping. No dirty dishes!
This is a take off on the classic Bacon Ranch salad. My family wanted a little more zip and character. Since I first made this, it is the only recipe people want me to make for pot lucks.
This is the classic noodle kugel that my mom always made for Shabbat dinner. It is incredibly easy to make and tastes so good! For best results, make the kugel the night before and put in the refrigerator. The next day, slice it with a knife and reheat in oven until warm.
A great pasta salad with Imitation crab meat, ham and sunflower seeds.
A nice twist to your standard shrimp salad. I made this recipe when I had tons of dill in my garden and needed something to do with it. Enjoy! :)
If you like it hot, you'll love this one. Any flavor ramen soup, with enough ingredients to make it a meal. Very tasty and may even bring a tear to your eye.
A big batch recipe for meaty spaghetti sauce that is loaded with fresh vegetables.
A lovely mild tomato and chilli pasta sauce with a hint of basil. Goes with any pasta (or try serving over chicken) and takes minutes to make!
This was 95% right out of the garden. It turned out awesome. The tomatoes were not seeded. Leverage your garden or farmers market on this one. Substitutions will reduce how fresh this tastes!
A meaty and very tasty sauce that only gets better the longer it simmers. Enjoyed with almost any pasta, this has been a really old family favorite.
An easy pasta fagioli recipe that will impress your family and friends.
This pasta crab salad has always been popular with guests. If I didn't stop myself, I could eat it 3 meals a day. Sometimes I do anyway. I have tried real crab and found the imitation simply tastes better with this recipe.
I've been making this one for years and everyone asks for a copy of the recipe. Easy to make and great left over.
