Five delicious easy pasta recipes that are perfect for cooking on Valentine’s Day! Date night in, even for one, is the 2020 vibe I can’t get enough of.
Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day this week? Weekend? Ever? Never?
We technically celebrate our dating anniversary on V-day, but after 9 years together we….I have no idea…anymore. Mainly because I travel a lot this time of year and last year we had a newborn and, while I’m cool with a dating anniversary and a wedding anniversary as an excuse to hang out, it’s definitely nothing mandatory for us anymore.
One thing we do love to do is cook together, whether or not it’s for a special occasion. Having Valentine’s Day on a Friday is the PERFECT excuse to stay in, decompress, and make a fabulous pasta dish in stretchy pants, whether you’re into the Valentine thing or not.
Here are some pasta dishes that I think you’d absolutely love for this weekend or anytime. They’re some of our favorites!
- She-Crab Mac and Cheese (pescatarian)
- Sausage Vodka Sauce with Penne
- Creamy Mushroom Parmesan Pasta (vegetarian)
- Spicy Sambal Pork Noodles (prepped the sauce this week!)
- 30-Minute Creamy Spinach Pasta (my personal favorite)
I have a whole pasta category if you’re into even more yummy noods recipes, and of course sub zoodles for any of these if you’re on a gf or low carb routine. I have this spiralizer that attaches to my stand mixer and we use it ALL the time, almost weekly.
Happy lets-eat-carbs-for-love week!
