I can live on pasta here's my 3 favorites
Italian sausage ....the easiest and fastest ever. Simply take the meat out of 1lb of hot italian sausage and fry it up with or without onions, peppers and hot peppers and add any basic tomato sauce
Chicken/asparagus Alfredo. Take pieces of torn up chicken and cut up fresh asparagus and saute with some garlic, Take a 1/4 stick of butter and 1 cup cream 1/3 cup parmesan and heat over low heat till mixed. Toss pasta, chicken and sauce together. Sprinkle fresh black pepper and parmesan on top
Meatballs, can't give u family recipe but mixing lean beef and a bit of ground pork is key. Add spices you like...garlic and parmesan are an Italian must. Use a basic sauce so the meatballs are the center of attention

Pasta is probably one of my favorite foods! We eat it quite often in my house, using a variety of ingredients and cooking techniques. I have listed some of my favorite dishes below. Usually we make a double batch and freeze half of it for a later meal when there isn't time to cook something.
1. Baked macaroni and cheese is a good comfort meal. We have a recipe that doesn't require cooking the pasta before baking. It includes typical mac and cheese ingredients such as butter, shredded cheddar cheese, milk, pasta, and dried herbs.
2. Italian style pasta dishes with spaghetti sauce are great as well, including stuffed shells, ravioli, baked spaghetti, and cheese lasagna. We just use classic recipes with no crazy ingredients.
3. Fettuccine alfredo is my all time favorite pasta dish. I make a version using cream cheese instead of heavy cream, milk, butter, parsley flakes, and parmesan cheese. It's a lighter version of the classic pasta dish, but you can't tell when eating it because the flavor is still amazing!
4. Buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese is a recipe that I discovered online. It uses ranch dressing as a main sauce component as well as hot sauce, cream cheese, milk, butter, and shredded chicken breasts. The entire thing is topped with shredded cheese and baked in the oven.
5. Cheeseburger pasta is something I have made before that everyone enjoyed. It included typical cheeseburger toppings such as bacon bits, barbecue sauce, ketchup, onion, garlic, dried herbs, cheddar cheese, relish, and ground burger. I've also made it using leftover rice instead of boiling pasta.

During September we are focusing on Quick Weeknight Meals, ways to nourish yourself and others during the busy autumn season. But we're also breaking that down into a few favorite regions of cuisine, starting with that of Italy. We'll be talking Italian food and quick, easy meals of pasta and other Italian-inspired dishes all week long! So, to kick it off, tell us: What's your favorite pasta recipe?
Personally, I love orecchiette with sausage and spicy greens. I also love pretty much any ravioli or pasta with butternut squash.
It's so hard to choose! One recent favorite was fettucine with pesto and sauteed mushrooms. Yesterday my husband made a wonderful sauce with grated zucchini, tomato puree, and fresh basil, that was out of this world. He served it over these ring-shaped pasta with a sort of "calamari" name because they look so much like calamari. I can't remember the exact word.
I've made homemade fettuccine a couple times and it is tough to beat. Had that once with my husband's vodka cream sauce. YUM.
