My Favorite Pasta Recipes

It's no secret that I love pasta! I'm such a carbs girl and could eat a giant bowl of fettuccine {with a glass of red wine, of course!} every day of the week. In fact, when I was a little girl, my mom always asked what I wanted to eat each year for my birthday, and I would always respond with, "Spaghetti." For real. 

So, here are some of my favorite pasta recipes -- and yes, it was hard to narrow them down! 

The Pioneer Woman's Shrimp Pasta in a Foil Package {here} is so easy and yummy! It's a perfect pasta for spring and summer, because it's light and tastes so fresh. 

When Pinterest first came out, this was one of the first recipes I pinned: Jenny Steffens Hobick's Penne Pasta Pie {here}. We absolutely love this -- especially in the fall while watching a football game -- and it makes leftovers for days! 

The Pioneer Woman kills it when it comes to pasta! I love her Pasta with Tomato-Blue Cheese Sauce {here}; it's a total "girl" meal {Brandon's not a huge fan}. This is a great easy weeknight meal! 

And again with good ol' P-Dub! Her Bowtie Lasagna {here} is a great substitute for lasagna in a pinch and comes together very quickly. It's a definite crowd-pleaser. 

If I'm wanting something a little more than just regular spaghetti, Recipe Diaries' Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti Casserole {here} is my go-to. This is the only baked spaghetti Brandon will eat, because it calls for far less cream cheese than other recipes. 

Tasty Kitchen's Creamy Caprese Pasta {here} is an easy, light meal that is perfect in the spring and summer. I typically use penne pasta when I make this, and it is so yummy! 

Eat, Live, Run's Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Shells {here} are fantastic! I like to make these when people come over, especially, and I also made them and froze them to have on hand when we brought Walker home from the hospital. They're definitely worth the work, that's for sure! 

By far one of my favorite pasta dishes is Joyfully Healthy Eats' Goat Cheese Spinach Pesto Pasta with Grilled Shrimp {here}. Adding the goat cheese to the homemade pesto just takes this dish over the top! I love to have this with a nice cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
