Recipes of the week: pasta

Los Angeles, Ca, – Pasta, pasta, pasta. I don’t know about you, but it feels like it’s on the menu every night at my house. So, how do I spruce up pasta? Three simple ways will give you a million different combinations (ok maybe not a million, but a lot!)

Focus on three elements: shape, flavor and add ins.

First the shape-every night serve different shapes to make you feel like you’re having something new.Pasta with pizzazz

Second focus on the flavor- buy plain, protein, vegetable based, etc to mix it up.

Third the pasta is all about the add ins-different vegetables, proteins and cheeses will really make you feel like you’re eating something completely different from the night before.
