With the fall weather officially in action, we’re excited about curling up on the couch with a warm hearty bowl of pasta. Thanks to our resident pasta expert Michael Bonacini (and a few other Gusto experts), we have a whole repertoire to choose from.
From a filling pasta with bolognese sauce to the classic creamy fettucine alfredo, scroll through our top pasta picks.
Nothing screams comfort more than a hearty helping of bolognese. Although bolognese sauce pairs well with any type of pasta, this recipe calls for fresh tagliatelle to soak up the flavour-rich meat sauce.
While you’re out pumpkin picking this month, don’t forget an extra one for tortelli di zucca, also known as roast pumpkin tortelli. This is the perfect seasonal dish to kick off the Autumn season.
Orecchiette translates to “small ear,” and the shape of this pasta is perfect for holding this flavour-packed sauce. Made with sweet Italian sausage, leeks, green peas and a kick of dijon mustard, we promise this colourful dish will become your new family favourite.
For another delicious twist on orecchiette, this recipe combines the flavours of rapini, pepper flakes, garlic, pine nuts and a lot of grated parmesan cheese. Take this dish to another level by finishing it off with a drizzle of olive oil
The return of the crisp fall breeze is one of the many reasons to stay indoors and indulge in your favourite comfort foods. On the menu? Fettucine alfredo, of course. This classic recipe includes double cream, lots of parmesan cheese and ground nutmeg.
Whether you like guanciale or pancetta, it calls for a creamy helping of the Italian favourite spaghetti carbonara. For that extra kick of umami, the recipe requires you to sub parmesan for pecorino cheese.
Looking to impress your guests with a sophisticated dish? Well, we promise this heavenly potato ricotta gnocchi with braised seasonal vegetable recipe will be a hit at your next dinner party.
Made with a mirepoix-based sauce, this easy-to-make recipe combines pasta shells and chickpeas for a satisfying bite every time.
This dish calls for the holy trinity of spinach, ricotta and pasta. The ultra-rich and creamy sauce perfectly cling onto the corkscrew pasta, making fusilli the ultimate pasta of choice for this dish.
Transform your typical spaghetti dinners with clams as your secret weapon ingredient. Like with any Italian dish, this pasta includes the base of olive oil and garlic (and a little bit of chilli). Simply toss spaghetti in your fragrant “sauce” and just like that, a super light and delicious meal.
For a seafood lover who thinks clams just aren’t enough, pasta served with a variety of seafood may be the dish for you. This recipe calls for a crisp pinot grigio that will pair heavenly with the delicate flavours of scallops, shrimp and red snapper and the noodle of choice, bucatini.
