5 Recipes to Celebrate National Pasta Day

October 17, 2011

Who doesn't love a bowl of steaming pasta? It is only made better with the addition of sauce.   There are an infinite number of pasta recipes but I have narrowed it down to five of my favorites.  What is your favorite pasta dish?  Share the recipe on Foodista.com.

Fusilli with Butternut Squash, Bacon, and Cheese
A decadent fall pasta dish that is rich and creamy.

Broccoli Rabe Pasta Toss
This member of the brassica family is also know as rapini.  It has a nutty and slightly bitter flavor.

Penne with Vodka Sauce
A classic Italian dish that will always please.

Pappardelle with Osso Buco Sauce
I like to serve this pasta dish on special occasions with homemade pappardelle noodles.

Pasta with Shrimp, Oven Dried Tomatoes, and Marscapone
Homemade oven dried tomatoes have an intense tomato flavor unmatched by fresh tomatoes.
