There are tons of ways to make pasta. And you probably have your no-fail favorites. But when it’s 6PM on a Thursday, and I don’t have everything on hand to make my go-to favorite, sometimes the thought of heading out to the store can be exhausting. One thing I’ve learned is that there are some pasta recipes that are super simple and super delicious, but most importantly, only take a few ingredients that I always have on hand.
Bookmark this page: chances are that you have ingredients on hand to make at least 4 or 5 of these tasty pasta recipes.
Lest you think I’m cheating, we decided the following pantry-staples don’t count:
