Today I want to give you some of my favorite easy pasta recipes for dinner. Pasta has always been a bit of a comfort food in our house. When you want something super filling that will give you leftovers a good pasta dish can do that for you.
Pasta is also super cheap and easy to keep on hand. I personally make one or two pasta dishes a week just so we can have extra leftovers for lunch. Since both my husband and I work from home it’s nice to have something quick and easy to heat up and enjoy.
Now these recipes below are not all pasta and some sort of sauce. I have casseroles, soups, and one pan recipes for you to enjoy. I’ll likely continue to add recipes to this post as I post new recipes to the blog. You will want to pin or bookmark this post so you can come back and find something new to try at a later date.
Easy Pasta Recipes For Dinner
Below are my favorite easy pasta recipes for dinner for you to try and enjoy.
Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole
I love this recipe because it’s one where I just pop the chicken into the crockpot with spices and enchilada sauce and let it cook all day. Then it’s as easy as cooking up some noodles, shredding the chicken, and mixing it all together with shredded cheese for an easy quick dinner.
Easy Classic Tuna Casserole
Seriously easy and uses loads of ingredients that you keep in your kitchen already, we love this easy classic tuna casserole for any night of the week. You can mix in your veggies of choice and even switch up your vegetable cream base too. I typically use Cream of Celery or Cream of Onion but you can use Cheese Soup or Cream of Broccoli too.
Cheap and Easy Spaghetti Carbonara
This is not a traditional carbonara but it is delicious and a meal I like to have at least once a month. This meal is my absolute comfort food that I always turn to when I just need that extra bit of goodness in my life. It’s always filling and tastes delicious.
Easy Chicken and Penne with Butternut Squash Sauce
I love using different types of sauces from regular tomato. It’s a great way to change up your pasta dishes. This butternut squash one came on a whim with me and I loved the way it turned out so much that I knew I had to share it here. I recently started playing with pumpkin sauces and will likely share a new recipe soon.
Easy Creamy Tomato and Spinach Pasta
When you need a one pan recipe that uses up ingredients you may already have in the house this is a great one for that. I often over purchase spinach and then need to find a way to use it all before it goes bad. This was one such experiment and now this creamy tomato and spinach pasta has become a regular meal for us.
Easy Instant Pot Mac and Cheese
My son is a super picky eater but he loves my homemade mac and cheese. This recipe came from that and while it’s not traditional mac and cheese that you bake it is a quick and delicious recipe that my kid loves. It’s perfect for a fast weeknight meal that’s filling and goes great with a chili the next day to use up any leftovers.
Easy Instant Pot Meaty Spaghetti
This is our go to easy recipe when our day is just a little too busy. We eat this about three or four times a month because it’s delicious, filling, and leaves loads of leftovers for us to enjoy. My husband will sometimes even ask for meaty spaghetti because he enjoys it that much.
Easy Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
Once those fall temperatures kick in, soup becomes a necessity in our house. We love this chicken noodle soup and especially love the leftover soup that we get for days afterwards. This soup is especially good the next day when the noodles soak up the broth. I’ll often put it in the oven with cheese on top and create a delicious chicken noodle casserole.
Shrimp and Tortellini with Butternut Squash Sauce
This was something I made on a whim and became a favorite in our house. It’s a surprisingly easy dish to make that’s filling. However, we rarely have leftovers when I make this because we love it so much we eat it all the same night I make it. If you love Shrimp and Tortellini I highly recommend trying this.
Easy Pasta Recipes
If you need a dinner that your entire family loves, pasta is the way to go. As I said previously I will likely continue to add to this post as I create more delicious meals and share the recipes on the site. I hope you enjoy the ones I have so far.
