There is nothing quite like comfort food and we think we can all agree, pasta is our number one! Whether you grew up eating cheesy dishes as a kid or it’s a newly discovered favourite, pasta is beloved internationally for its ability to be a simple go-to or a dish to get creative with. It’s often one of the first meals you learn to cook, which is why pasta holds so much nostalgia in every chapter of our lives. Plus it makes great leftovers for any age, on any day of the week!
We love how versatile a plate of pasta can be! It can be prepared with merely butter and salt, or easily developed into a gourmet meal with a rich homemade marinara sauce or creamy white sauce. Pair with a delicious side of pre-prepared protein and you’ve got a delightfully balanced meal that hits all your nutritional needs and cravings. If you’re feeling daring you can even take a go at making your noodles from scratch!
We have curated this list of delicious pasta recipes to inspire you at home to get back to basics or challenge your culinary skills. Plated on either our Deep Plates or Shallow Serving Bowls, complimented with a refreshing cocktail, these recipes can be perfected for a dinner party, or enjoyed on your lap on the couch. We hope a meal of savory pasta will offer a soothing and relaxing moment of comfort this season.

We highly recommend hitting up your local farmers market for this one! With a creamy ricotta texture mixed with a sweet surprise from the roasted butternut squash, this dish will satisfy your taste buds without leaving you overstuffed or bloated. Each shell is stuffed with a cashew cream base combined with crumbled tofu, lemon zest, and baby spinach and seasoned with oregano, red pepper flakes, and garlic. Nutritious and delicious! Filled with flavour and texture these bursting shells would look (almost) too good to eat on our Blackberry Deep Plate, paired with a glass of white vino and side salad.
