Our 26 Best Fall Pasta Recipes to Try Right Now
We love a hearty plate of pasta on a chilly fall day
A big plate of pasta is incredibly satisfying on a chilly fall day. Moreover, pasta is a great way to use seasonal autumn produce like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. Here are some of our best pasta recipes for fall.
Lasagna is certainly hearty, but sometimes can be too heavy. Our veal and spinach lasagna is perfectly balanced—substantial enough to fill you up, but made with a light egg and tomato sauce rather than a heavy red sauce. Pillowy potato gnocchi are also fantastic this time of year: start with our guide to making better gnocchi, then customize them with a rich ragù or a gorgonzola cream sauce.
Macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. There are all kinds of way to mix up the dish—try penne with Gruyère, Comté, fontina, and a panko-parmesan crust or macaroni au gratin made with classic elbow macaroni and flavored with clove, nutmeg, and bay leaves. For an ultra-creamy high-low macaroni we use a blend of four cheeses: sharp white cheddar, Gruyère, blue cheese, and—the secret ingredient—Velveeta (yup, you read that right).
From potato-and-cheese tortelli to sweet potato gnocchi, here are our best fall pasta recipes.
