Molly’s Favorites

Easy Pasta Recipes

Find a quick and classic recipe with simple ingredients. Each of these pasta dishes use minimal ingredients, pantry staples, and take 30 minutes or less to make (like these 30-minute recipes!). Home cooks of every level can make these delicious recipes after a long day!

Italian Recipes

Any of these Italian recipes make a perfect weeknight dinner. The best part is they’re easy to make. Stock up on basics like tomato paste and penne pasta then serve them up with fresh basil leaves, a salad, or garlic bread for a complete meal. They’re always go-to dinners for pasta night because kids love them!

Chicken Pastas

Easy chicken recipes are a staple around here because they’re high-protein pasta recipes. Use your chicken breasts in any of these dishes, or make them extra quick with leftover rotisserie chicken. 

Hidden Veggies

I love that these healthy meals sneak in hidden veggies like fresh tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, and more. Kids absolutely love pasta, so these delicious recipes are a simple way to add more vegetables to your family meal.

Creamy Pastas

Find a creamy pasta dish the whole family will love!  If you’re looking for a hearty meal with rich sauce, you’re in the right place. Thanks to easy substitutes for heavy cream, you can turn most of these into a surprisingly creamy vegan sauce with cashew cream and plant-based cheese. I especially love to use this homemade boursin cheese recipe in boursin cheese pasta.

One-Pot Pasta Recipe

It’s the best when you only have to clean on pot after making a delicious pasta recipe. We love one pot recipes around here!

Gnocchi Recipes

​Level up your Trader Joe’s meal with our homemade cauliflower gnocchi. Making homemade pasta dough doesn’t take long and makes all of these gnocchi dishes so delicious. I love the sun-dried tomatoes and fresh spinach in the sheet pan gnocchi!
