Pasta is a generic term for an unleavened dough usually made from durum wheat flour and water, then cut into sheets or any variety of over 300 shapes.
In a previous post I shared one of my almost world famous original recipe for a special Lasagna with Pistachios.
and this post with a recipe for pasta with duck confit and ham.
Ravioli is another version of pasta. It can be filled with almost anything, from seafood to cheeses or meat or vegetables.
Egg Noodles are popular as a side dish or made as a meal in a bowl.
pesto and pasta is another favorite and works well when you want a meatless meal. Or you can add some seafood like shrimp.
A cold pasta salad is always good in summer. I make a great macaroni salad with olives and pimentos. Next summer I will share the recipe and pics.
Linguini with clams sauce is another favorite. In future article, I will share some of the secrets to the perfect Linguini with clam sauce! Pasta is versatile and makes a great meal with little work.
Don’t forget the salad.
….and of course, a glass of wine always goes well with pasta too!
