6. Ranch Macaroni and Cheese

This quick and easy macaroni and cheese is loaded with ranch flavor, and it’s impossibly creamy. The crackers may seem like an odd addition, but they give this macaroni and cheese a great texture!

5. Pasta With Asparagus, Lemon, and Goat Cheese

This light, refreshing pasta dish comes together in no time, making it perfect for a summer weeknight meal. The goat cheese and lemon are so tangy and work perfectly with the asparagus. If you don’t want to heat up your kitchen, try grilling the asparagus!

4. Tagliatelle ai Funghi

The beauty of tagliatelle ai funghi is the simplicity, and how the quality of each ingredient can be perceived in each and every bite. When prepared with fresh handmade egg pasta, the dish is divine.

3. Penne With Artichokes and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Need a quick meal for a crazy weeknight? Look no further! Whip up a quick sauce for your pasta using frozen artichoke hearts, lemon and sundried tomatoes. Top it with quickly toasted up bread crumbs and you’re ready to go!

2. Angel Hair with Checca Sauce

This is my favorite summer pasta. It’s quick and easy, and the sauce is completely raw, so there’s no need to heat the kitchen up with excessive cooking! It comes together in a flash in the food processor. It is the perfect weeknight, family meal or would be great for entertaining!


1. Cheesy Pesto Stuffed Shells

Here’s a hearty, delicious vegetarian main dish. If you’d like an extra creamy filling, stir in a little cream cheese. Spinach would also be delicious in the filling, and you could easily replace the tomato-based pasta sauce with alfredo sauce. This recipe is endlessly adaptable and tastes amazing!
