Spring pasta dishes

Cook up a deliciously light pasta dish for dinner this spring using these three recipes.

3 homemade pasta recipes to cook up this spring

For many of us, pasta is a food staple. I myself have grown up with it being a fundamental part of my dietary life. Some of my earliest memories include sitting around my Nonna’s table in Italy while being messily spoon fed homemade pasta marinara, and sitting in front of the television watching the spaghetti scene in Lady and the Tramp.

We all love eating pasta, whatever shape, sauce or even time of day it is. This spring, try cooking a new pasta dish at home for yourself or to impress your friends and family at your next dinner party.

The best thing about these recipes is they all only take ten minutes to make!
