6 Pasta dishes that the family will love

Pasta is one of my favourite ingredients to use in our meal planning, simply because there are so many options on what you can do with it and it is so quick to cook. It is not very often that we buy a pasta sauce dish either as I tend to just use up what is leftover.

I tend to make the basics such as macaroni cheese or a spicy vegetable sauce using up whatever we have leftover in the fridge. It is the perfect way to make sure nothing goes to waste and is a cheap and quick meal option that makes perfect leftovers for the next day!

Pasta dishes don’t need to be boring and it is so versatile that you can add pretty much anything to it, which is why it is so ideal for families as we all know how much hassle there is when cooking for families.
