It is difficult to go wrong with pasta. Even the simplest pasta dish can be a satisfying meal. It is not only the Italians who are passionate about their pasta—it has become a staple in kitchens all around the world.
You might like butter and shavings of parmesan over some fresh tagliatelle, or penne with mushroom and herb sauce. Lasagne and cannelloni make for great family meals—perfect for feeding a small crowd. If you simply can’t decide, you can always go with a classic like spaghetti Bolognese.
Part of the appeal of pasta is its versatility and variety, so be adventurous and experiment with different types of pasta shapes and flavors.
