Easy Pasta Recipes: 31 Best Pasta Recipes with Chicken, Beef, and More
Pasta all around! We love pasta recipes for so many reasons: they're cheap, they're versatile, and best of all, they're super tasty! The latest free eCookbook from the Mr. Food Test Kitchen, Easy Pasta Recipes: 31 Best Pasta Recipes with Chicken, Beef, and More, has quick and easy pasta recipes for the whole family. Whether you're in the mood for spaghetti, penne, lasagna, or more, our pasta collection is a must have for dinner.
Pasta makes for a wonderful dinner entree in all its different forms. Whether you're looking to add a few veggies to make it a vegetarian pasta recipe or you pair it with chicken, beef, or seafood for a heartier option, you're sure to find a pasta recipe to suit your taste. Some of the best pasta recipes aren't just isolated to dinnertime. Throw some in a batch of homemade soup to take in a thermos on the go for lunch. You can even pull together a mean pasta salad recipe that'll be great for that summer barbecue. We bet you didn't know that you could also utilize pasta in your next dessert! This is your chance to be creative and just have fun in the kitchen, so take advantage and find out more about all the best easy pasta recipes we've got in this free eCookbook.
Head on down under the sea with some seafood pasta recipes that are sure to remind you of some of your favorite restaurant recipes. Our Restaurant-Style Shrimp Scampi (page 1), for example, will give you that sophisticated dinner you're looking for without having to leave the house! And if you want to cook up a classic from Mom's kitchen, you've got to try one of our favorite easy pasta recipes for Mom's Tuna Noodle Casserole (page 3). It's a pasta casserole recipe that's great for a number of occasions, whether you're looking for something for a weeknight dinner or need to bring over a casserole for a potluck. Those versatile pasta recipes are some of the best, aren't they?
Whether you're looking for a vegetarian pasta recipe or you just want something a little bit lighter, we know you're going to love our selection of meatless pasta recipes. Our Fresh Garden Pasta (page 6) is one of our favorite pasta recipes to pull out during the springtime 'cause it has a lighter, refreshing taste that just complements the season so well. And when fall comes around, make sure you head out to your local farmer's market and pick up a couple of eggplants. You're gonna want to use 'em in one of our best pasta recipes for Eggplant Fettuccine (page 7).
Chicken and pasta are one of the unsung pairings in the food world, and we've got some fantastic pasta recipes with chicken to prove it. We love our Chicken Fettuccine Casserole (page 9) because it's like an all-star gathering of ingredients. It includes chicken, pasta, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, and more, creating the ultimate casserole dish to impress your entire family. If you're in the mood for some takeout but don't want to bother going out to pick it up, our Asian Chicken Bowties (page 12) is a wonderful alternative. It'll give you a chance to practice those chopstick lessons you've been looking to master.
Stovetop pasta is all well in good, but we can't deny ourselves a good old-fashioned baked pasta recipe. You'll think these delectable eats came straight out of your grandmother's cookbook with their down-home ingredients and easy instructions. Our Baked Goulash (page 13) recipe, for example, has stood the test of time and passed with flying colors. Feel free to make this recipe your own by adding other flavors of cheese or additional veggies to make it one of your best pasta recipes yet! We at the Test Kitchen believe that you can't have a complete recipe collection without at least one recipe for baked mac 'n' cheese, and that's exactly what we've got with our Company Special Mac 'n' Cheese (page 17). You'll want to save this dish to put out at every holiday since it'll please both kids and adults alike!
When you're pressed for time, there's nothing like a quick and easy pasta recipe to come to your rescue! Sometimes, you don't have an hour to wait around for a casserole to bake up, especially on a weeknight. If you're looking for a home-cooked meal in a hurry, then you'll love our Lean 'n' Mean Pasta Skillet (page 18). All you need is your stovetop for this one to get a full 'n' hearty meal, made with meat, pasta, and veggies. It's simple, yet effective, and perfect to pull out in a pinch. If you need a kid-friendly recipe that adults can enjoy too, then take a peek at our Cheese-Stuffed Meatballs & Spaghetti (page 21). They'll love finding the cheesy surprise in the center, and you'll love how simple it is to put together!
You can never have too many classic soup recipes at your disposal, can you? We thought not! These easy soup recipes with pasta are super versatile, whether you want to cook up a batch for dinner when you're feeling under the weather or you're looking for a simple solution to reheat at the office the next day. You know that incredible soup you might find at your favorite Asian restaurant? Well, now you can make it at home with our easy pasta recipe for the Best Noodle Soup Ever (page 22). We know you'll start feeling hungry as soon you smell it simmerin' on the stove! When the weather outside gets extra chilly in the winter, as long as you have a batch of our Egg Noodle Vegetable Chowder (page 24) on hand, you're sure to stay nice and toasty warm.
Pasta salad recipes are great to have around when you need to throw together the perfect potluck dish in a pinch. They're the ultimate side dish 'cause they pair well with just about every food and remain popular enough to ensure there won't be any leftovers! Good pasta salad recipes can be hard to come by, but our Basic Macaroni Salad (page 26) is sure to hit it out of the park. It's got a classic, universally appealing taste that'll ensure it's brought out again and again for all your potluck events. And if you've been wanting to impress your family and friends, grab your best trifle dish and throw together our colorful Stacked Pasta Salad (page 27). This impressive dish looks more complicated than it is, but we guarantee it'll become one of your best pasta recipes too!
That's right—we've even got a few pasta dessert recipes up our sleeves! We know it sounds a little out of the ordinary, but we know one you take your first bite, you'll agree these are some of the best quick and easy pasta recipes we've got. Plus, they're guaranteed to make you stand out among a sea of cakes, pies, and cookies. Our Apple Lasagna (page 30), for example, is a fun alternative to your traditional apple pie recipe. We like serving it up warm the best, but it tastes great when it's cold, too! If you're in the mood for something a little more tropical instead, then our Pineapple Noodle Pudding (page 31) is one easy pasta recipe you'll have to try. It's got a crispy cornflake topping and cooks up in a casserole dish, making it a fun addition the next time you're expecting company and need a homemade dessert.
