It’s the best day of the year. NATIONAL PASTA DAY! Well, it is if you like pasta. But who doesn’t like pasta? Seriously. Pasta is one of the most versatile foods we have available to us, and probably the most affordable too. So in honor of national pasta day, I found popular pasta recipes that are not the normal spaghetti and alfredo meals to try on this spectacular day.
One-pan Garlic Chicken Pesto Pasta
Pesto is a personal favorite of mine. Add chicken and garlic, PLUS less dishes? I AM TOTALLY IN. Not to mention how simple it looks to make.
Chili Mac ‘N’ Cheese
This is a yummy twist on regular Mac ‘N’ Cheese!
Butter-Poached Shrimp and Orzo
Orzo may look like rice, but it is definitely a pasta. A tasty pasta at that! Just watching this video makes my mouth water.
Tomato Basil Pasta Bake
This dish looks similar to a lasagna, but looks WAY tastier. If you like tomato basil anything, you definitely NEED to try this recipe!
Make National Pasta Day AMAZING by trying one- or more of these recipes! You definitely will not be judged for trying more than one. I may or may not be trying several of them myself. Who says pasta is bad for you?
