Check out 12 Perfect Pasta Dishes by Lesli at
Pasta makes the perfect meal choice if you ask me. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am pretty sure I was Italian in a past life. That is how much I love pasta. The 12 dishes that I chose for this collection are full of flavor and are sure to impress your guests!

Lemon Infused Shrimp Pasta :: This light buttery pasta topped with lemon infused shrimp and Parmesan cheese looks divine!

Tomato, Roasted Pepper and Arugula Pasta :: This dish looks as beautiful as it tastes. So many scrumptious colors!

Mac and Cheese Cupcakes :: I mean, come on. Is there a cuter way to serve classic Mac and Cheese?

Sensational Summer Pasta :: This simple salad has some of my favorite pasta ingredients: summer ripe juicy tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella. Delish!

Dungeness Crab Lemon Basil Pasta :: I used fresh dungeness crab, with its rich buttery taste that is sweet right out of the shell, to prepare this delicious pasta dish. This recipe was so EASY and so delicious.

Spaghetti with Chicken Sausage and Lentil Bolognese :: This hearty sauce is something you can make ahead of time and reheat if necessary. It is packed with nutrition with unconventional ingredients like lentils.

Grilled Chicken Pasta Salad in a Spicy, Tomato-Basil Vinaigrette :: This fiery Italian pasta salad is one heck of a spitfire. It is pasta with a spicy kick.

Avocado Pesto Pasta :: This simple recipe is made with avocado, pasta, and Italian pesto. Creamy pureed avocado is blended with olive oil, lemon juice and bold,  flavor-packed pine nut-basil pesto.

Turkey and Kale Pasta :: This turkey and kale pasta can always be substituted for chicken when you don't have turkey around.

Asparagus, Broad Bean, Mint and Lemon Risoni :: This wonderful light pasta is almost reminiscent of a warm pasta salad. The ingredients are so enticing!

Three Cheese Meat Lasagna :: What is a pasta collection without lasagna? This is a thick, saucy, meaty, cheesy Italian pasta dish made with lean ground beef, tomato and basil pasta sauce.

Langostinos Pasta in a Garlic Butter Sauce :: Langostino tails are sweet, and lobster-like and with a delicate texture. They are perfect in this succulent pasta dish made with a garlic butter sauce.

From tomato basil to garlic butter, pasta dishes are definitely my favorite. When I am ordering at a restaurant, I will choose a pasta dish 9/10 times. I am always looking for great recipes to try at home. I hope you enjoy these!
