How To Impress Your Family With Easy Pasta Recipes
by: Andrew Goligher

Most people's grocery cabinets start to become quite empty toward the end of the month. Don't worry, most likely you can still prepare delicious meals with the few things you have left. Many easy pasta recipes can for example be prepared with the remaining odds and ends you will find in your fridge or grocery cabinet. The ingredients are simple: a box of pasta and a handful of other items which you will most of the time have in your kitchen cabinet.

If you use your imagination you can undoubtedly create a lovely pasta from the ingredients you will find in your refrigerator and grocery cabinet. Take stock of what dried spices you have left in the cabinet. Make a list of the fresh vegetables and mushroom you have - they can add a lot of flavor to your dish. If you have a jar or two of artichoke hearts or green olives so much the better.

The type of pasta that usually goes best with such a mix of goodies you find in your cabinet and refrigerator is the short, spiral shaped type of pasta, or alternatively macaroni. Experimenting is obviously allowed, since the whole idea is to use what you already have. Whatever you select should then be boiled in a large container until it becomes tender and then drained afterward.

There are many options when it comes to dressing up the pasta. A simple thing such as a few spoonfuls of melted butter can go a long way to enhance the taste of your pasta dish. The same is true of a scattering of grated cheese.

If you have some bits of salami in the house (it doesn't matter if it's already somewhat dry), don't throw it away. The same goes for that nearly empty bottle of balsamic vinegar or the jar with only a few spoonfuls of salad dressing left. All these things can serve to liven up the taste of your pasta. The same can be said of that single remaining tomato and the few mushrooms, green onions or olives you have left.

On a cold and rainy day, one doesn't want to serve a cold dish - a steamy hot pasta will be excellent. In this regard you will have to go a long way to beat the old favorite macaroni and cheese. To prepare it is just so easy and all you need are a handful of basic things: macaroni, flower, garlic, butter, black pepper, bread crumbs and salt.

Use all the ingredients listed in the previous paragraph (except the bread crumbs and the pasta) to prepare a lovely cheese sauce. Then mix the pasta and the cheese sauce. Subsequently bake the dish in an oven set to medium heat for about 20 minutes. When it comes to easy pasta recipes few are easier or cheaper to prepare than this one.
