Who doesn't love pasta? There are countless ways that you can make and enjoy pasta! And if you are watching the waistline, have any dietary restrictions, or just want different variations, there is a past for you! There are gluten free pastas, whole wheat pastas, and even quinoa pasta! Yes, quinoa pasta! I didn't believe it either until I saw it with my own eyes.
Today though, I am going to keep it traditional with some classic pasta dishes that are light and easy to make. Although you can just go out and buy pasta, I HIGHLY recommend that you make your own pasta at home at least once! It is so much easier than you may think, and it can be a fun activity with the family! So go get your hands dirty and enjoy some freshly made pasta!

Pasta alla Carbonara
This classic egg based pasta looks very fancy, but it is quite quick and easy to throw together! I use this one a lot when we are having friends over.
Shrimp fra Diavolo
This is a favorite of the hubs, and again, very quick to pull together. It may seem complicated, but once you actually see the directions and how quickly it all pulls together, it will end up being a dinner staple! It also pairs well with a nice red wine, so it is an excellent date night meal.
This is one of my all time favorites! This is a classic recipe from my Nonna that I ALWAYS make during the summer or when I am dreaming of summer! I cannot even begin to stress how easy and quick this meal is to throw together! We also do a CSA in the summer, so the dish is that much better with the fresh farm vegetables!
