Today I’m talking about all the different types of pasta dishes you can make and enjoy. From classic spaghetti Bolognese to trendy spiralized veggie noodles, there’s a pasta dish for every occasion.
Many believe that it was first created in ancient China and brought to Italy by Marco Polo in the 13th century.
Regardless the origin, pasta is one of the most popular foods in Italy, where it was adopted as a staple food and was made in a variety of shapes and sizes.
There are hundreds types of pasta available, each having its own unique qualities and uses.
These are the dishes we all probably grew up eating and still love to this day. Spaghetti with meatballs, fettuccine alfredo, and lasagna are a few examples.
Lighter pasta dishes often feature fresh ingredients, ligh sauces, and sometimes even low carb pasta alternatives, like zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash.
Think about baked ziti and stuffed cannelloni. I love these types of pasta dishes for cold winter days or when you’re craving something carb-rich and comforting.
These often feature creative ingredients, bold flavors, and new twists on classic pasta dishes. Pasta carbonara with crispy pancetta, spaghetti squash with pesto, and ramen noodles with a runny egg are a few examples
