Mediterranean Pasta with Shrimp, Broccoli and Sundried Tomatoes   

This pasta leans on the lighter side, with sautéed shrimp, fresh broccoli and delicate angel hair pasta. The tang of sun-dried tomatoes and feta bring the flavor Mediterranean-style, and the whole delicious pot comes together in minutes.


Pasta Bolognese with Peas and Ricotta  

Quick, hearty, and satisfying–it’s classic Pasta Bolognese with a few unexpected twists. First, peas, which add a subtle sweetness and balance. And right before you serve, add a dollop of ricotta for richness to rival your favorite lasagna!


Linguine Caprese Salad with Pesto   

Classic Caprese flavor goes warm or cold when you have the right ingredients on hand. Cooking the pasta only takes a few minutes, and tossing in the fresh Ciliegine and cherry tomatoes is even quicker. Hint: The pesto will stick better if you toss it in while the pasta is still hot.


Meatballs in Tomato Sauce   

Cook these meatballs in the slow cooker for old-fashioned, slow-simmered taste that will be ready and waiting at dinnertime. All you need is a pack of crusty rolls and dinner is done. If you have leftovers, toss them on top of pasta for tomorrow’s lunch.


Sicilian-Style Pasta with Sardines   

This quick dish is your ticket to Italy, and you won’t believe how quickly it’ll get you there. Hearty kale and buttery pine nuts play nicely with a kick of chili. Sardines are the finishing touch for a pop of unexpected flavor (and hearty-health boosting omega-3 fatty acids.)


Stovetop Lasagna 

Breaking news: Lasagna doesn’t have to be an all-day affair! Your skillet, our video, and about 30 minutes is about all you need to put this one-pan stovetop version on the table. Pull up a chair, dinner’s ready!
