Top 10 pasta recipes that are easy, simple and kids’ friendly too. Pasta is one of the most basic foods from Italian cuisine and is a staple usually served for lunch or dinner. Pasta is mostly made from Durum wheat (hard wheat) either using the grain, semolina or the flour. However one can find them made using quinoa, brown rice and even mutigrain. Pasta comes in many shapes and sizes. Some of the most commonly used shapes are macaroni, spaghetti, fusilli, bow etc.
Traditionally a larger population would make their own fresh pasta that was handmade. Due to convenience, dried pasta became widely used for several decades.
I have shared several pasta recipes on the blog, compiling top 10 pasta recipes here for quick access. You can make these for quick dinner, lunch or after school. These can be accompanied with toasted bread or soups.
So far all the pasta recipes I have shared on the blog are made using organic durum wheat pasta, I will be sharing more recipes using other varieties too.
