We all have those nights when we crave pasta, or at least a satisfying and quick meal. Tuesdays are my 5-minute dinner days, I just can't bring myself to stay in the kitchen for very long. I'm not sure why, but we all have those days and a great solution is a pasta dinner. Everything in moderation, including carbs, is my motto so why not treat yourself to an easy meal without compromising nutrition by way of pasta.
Beef Sukiyaki with Noodles: This is a 30-minute meal at its finest. Drenched in flavor, but not calories, the beef and spices and perfectly supported by a bed of noodles.
Non Dairy Creamy Pasta: A grown-up version of one of my favorite dishes as a child. My aunt used to make hers with peas and crunchy bits of leftover steak, delicious--but this version is much more sophisticated and chock full of root veggies.
Bow-Tie Pasta Salad with Chicken: Take last night's pasta and repurpose it for today's lunch or dinner. A quick pesto and some grilled chicken keep this salad light and flavorful.
Penne, Broccoli and Pecorino Bake: This would make for a great weeknight dinner if you're entertaining. After you boil the pasta, just put the rest of the ingredients into a ramekin and voila an elegant pasta dinner.
Creamy Ziti:A famous Geller Family recipe, Jamie shares her favorite and fast recipe for ziti. It's so simple, but so incredibly delicious.
