National Pasta Day: 12 Recipes to Try

by - October 17, 2021


Pasta is my favorite food group, and what better way to celebrate National Pasta Day than by rounding up some of my family's favorite pasta dishes! The best part? All of these are really easy to make and super delicious.

In on particular order, here are 12 Pasta Recipes to Try.

Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi - This recipe literally takes 15 minutes to make. The most difficult part is finding the scampi seasoning.

Italian Pasta Skillet - This is like Hamburger Helper but so much better.

Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo - This is probably the simplest recipe you'll ever find for this. I love a good shortcut and this one is nothing but shortcuts!

Instant Pot Stuffed Shells - Don't expect yours to turn out looking anything like the photo included with the recipe, but man are these yummy!

Instant Pot Tortellini Soup - This is one of those recipes you can make in the Instant Pot or Crockpot. I've done it both ways and both times it was delicious!

Meatball Pasta Bake - This is one of my family's favorite casseroles. You literally just dump the ingredients into the pan and bake.

Baked Tortellini - Tortellini might be the most versatile pasta on the market. This recipe is so cheesy and ooey-gooey good.

Instant Pot Tuna Noodle Casserole - This is the most popular recipe on my blog, hands down, and for good reason! This is my go-to "I don't know what to make" meal, and it's always a favorite.

Instant Pot Chili Mac - Whether you call it chili mac or goulash, this recipe is perfect for kids.

Instant Pot Ham & Cheese Macaroni - This is such a good mac-n-cheese recipe, y'all.

Instant Pot Meatball Lasagna - This was another hit in our house, although I used whatever noodles I happened to have in the pantry to make it.

Instant Pot Taco Casserole - This is a fun alternative to tacos. Serve with sour cream and your other favorite taco toppings.

What's your favorite pasta recipe?
