I love pasta. If I could eat pasta every day and not suffer any ill effects, I probably would. As it is, we generally have some sort of pasta dish once a week. One of the best things about pasta is its versatility, as demonstrated by this week’s picks:
Food and Wine has a recipe for basic pasta dough. I’ve never made my own pasta dough and I’m a little scared about doing so without a pasta maker. As a result, I’ve had this recipe sitting in my collection for almost 3 years. Adding to the notion that I really should try making my own pasta sometime is this lemon and goat cheese ravioli from Serious Eats.
Anyone else as ready for summer as I am? This pasta salad with tomatoes, zucchini, and feta from The Pioneer Woman isn’t helping matters any.
Scroll down in Sarah’s post for her whole wheat shells with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and an egg on top. There’s definitely a school of people who think anything can be improved with an egg on top, even pasta. I think that may be true.
As much as I love pasta, I don’t think I could ever make this mac ‘n cheese grilled cheese posted on Endless Simmer. The mac ‘n cheese itself sounds yummy, but I don’t think I could put it in a sandwich. Could you?
Speaking of macaroni and cheese, my friend Courtney posted a recipe for chicken, bacon and ranch macaroni and cheese. Yum! Someday I’ll actually buy chicken again (anyone know of a good local source?) and try it!
