It's no secret we are big fans of innovative cuisine - sous vide cooking, craft cocktails, molecular gastronomy? Sign us up for all of it. Still, there's something about the classics that nouveau fare just can't touch. One thing everyone should master? A signature bowl of pasta.
Whether you're vegan, gluten-free, or a straight-up omnivore, there are a million ways you can enjoy this flexible food. We challenged ourselves to create three easy pasta dishes, each with five ingredients or less. You don't need hundreds of high-end components to create an outstanding, inventive, healthy meal. Classic? Yes. Boring? Never.
