The pasta recipes on this site are, as the web site title suggests, my favorite pasta recipes. These are my go-to recipes for everyday dinners, special occasions, late night suppers and lazy sundays. They have been organized by the sauce...tomato-based, seafood, etc.
Use the pull down menus to see the recipe lists or use the search button in the top corner of every page.
I add new content regularly so bookmark the site or subscribe to my mailing list to get the latest updates.
If you need ideas for tonight's dinner, start a search with the ingredients you have on hand...peas, bacon, shrimp, chicken, whatever...and see what pops up! It's super easy to substitute ingredients in many of these recipes so feel free to adjust the recipe to make it work for you and your family.
The slideshow on the home page is also a good place to look for inspiration. The recipes for all of the dishes shown are now online.
I know how frustrating it can be when recipes don't provide all the techniques and little steps you need for success so I make it a point to include the tips that work for me, along with additional resources, for each recipe. If they help, great. If not, just ignore them. Check the video section as well for instructional demos and how-to tutorials.
If you have tricks and techniques that work for you, please share them with our pasta lovers community by leaving a comment! Keep in mind that there is no "one way" to cook anything so no nastiness please...it should pass the "would you say it to your grandmother test?" or it won't be published.
If there is something you need and you can't find it on the site, just send me an email and I'll add it. Chances are, someone else needs it too!
If you want to learn more, check the video section for how-to videos on everything from cooking pasta al dente to mastering carbonara to making fresh pasta from scratch.
I hope you enjoy using this site as much as I enjoy publishing it!
