These 7 pasta recipes serves up with a variety of flavors and pasta choices that you could eat every day and not get bored.
Spice up the hum-drum taste of noodles with these great flavors and spices. These pasta recipes adds the tantalizing flavors of garden fresh tomatoes, exotic coconut, nutty cashews, herbs like basil and the medicinal garlic, and don’t forget the oh-so common cheese.
You can even have a noodle dish every day without getting bored with the variety I have here. I have selected clam shell pasta, angel hair pasta, fettuccine pasta, and the two common spaghetti and macaroni.
So pick your choice of flavors and make a pasta week of it!
Number 7 is made with vegetarian cheese so easily adaptable to substitute a vegan cheese preference.
