A nice combination of ingredients to make a special recipe that’s really just this simple!
Sausage, Kale, and Mustard
Mustard is one key ingredient in this recipe, and it’s incredible! The flavor it adds to the pasta is one you need to try (I’d definitely recommend adding it to your bucket list!). It’s a nice dinner to make when a friend comes by to catch up on the news - this way you can enjoy most of the time talking and not waste any time cooking.

It’s also very easy to make - you just need to cook the linguine in one pot while the veggies cook in another one - here are the directions so you get it done properly. This recipe serves about four people, so not only is it easy, it also yields a lot.
Bacon + Corn

Vegan Mac & Cheese
If you’re a vegan or have any vegan friends, this recipe is the one to make! It’s the vegan equivalent to mac & cheese and it’s simply amazing! So easy to put together, and I’m telling you: you’ll be surprised on how this mac & cheese that actually has no cheese is so yummy!
Beets Pasta (Gluten Free)
These years more and more people are finding out that they can’t eat gluten, and well, if you’re already used to eating all the delicious things that have gluten - like all the pasta recipes above - it might get a bit hard to follow the restriction.
Given the growth of this restriction, there are now so many recipes that are the perfect substitution for anything you want! This pasta with beets pesto is just one of the many examples we could give!
Cauliflower Alfredo + Bacon (Gluten and Dairy Free)
In addition to being gluten-free, many people also need to follow a dairy-free diet. For those cases, we have recipes such as this cauliflower alfredo fettuccine with bacon that is simply incredible! Even people who can eat it all should give this a try!
