Pasta is a filling meal that your entire family can enjoy while spending some quality time together.

These pasta dinner recipes won't keep you in the kitchen for too long, and your whole family is sure to love them.

Basic Butter Pasta:

Boil your choice of pasta until tender, and then thoroughly drain the pasta and put it back in the pot. Add a couple of tablespoons of butter, a little salt and pepper, and some chopped fresh parsley and basil to the pot, then gently mix everything together. Serve with salad and French bread.

Cheesy Macaroni Bake:

Put some cooked macaroni pasta in a large mixing bowl. Add ½ cup of sour cream, ½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese, ½ cup cooked ground sausage, and a little salt and pepper to the bowl. Thoroughly mix everything together until the macaroni is fully coated with the sour cream and cheese. Transfer the macaroni mixture to a baking pan, cover the pan with foil, and bake in your preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Enjoy alone or with a cup of tomato soup.

Spicy Orzo and beans:

Cook two servings of orzo according to the package directions and set aside. In a saucepan, saute two cloves of chopped garlic, ½ finely diced jalapeño pepper, and ¼ cup of chopped red onion in a tablespoon of oil until translucent. Then add two freshly chopped tomatoes and one can of tomato sauce to the pan and let the sauce simmer for about five minutes. Add the orzo to the sauce and stir slowly until thoroughly combined. Let the orzo simmer for another five minutes before serving with a protein of your preference.
