Pasta is arguably the most reliable dish because even with a fairly simple recipe, you’d still end up with something delicious. When you’re pressed for time, it’s easy to whip up in the kitchen, and if you have no idea what to bring to a potluck, no one ever gets mad at the person who brings a tray of lasagna, right? And at this point in quarantine, we’re betting you’ve tried your hand at one to two pastas that you’ve already nailed. If you’re looking for the next recipe to conquer, why not try a celebrity favorite?
Bea Alonzo’s Pink Pasta
An easy dish to make, you probably already have all the main ingredients in your kitchen. Fun fact: This is what Bea served frontliners during their first Easter Bobbie for I Am Hope.
Erwan Heussaff’s Cheesy No Oven “Lasagna”
As someone who does not have an oven, this one’s a favorite. You can make everything in one pan or pot so it’s less prep and clean-up time. The key is just to let it simmer for 30 minutes to let the flavor build.
Marjorie Barretto’s Fresh Tomato Pasta
You already know how obsessed we are with this particular fresh tomato pasta, ugh. LOVE. Prepare two kilos of local tomatoes and use cherry tomatoes as toppings!
Dani Barretto’s Spaghetti
If you’re in the mood for a classic, here’s Dani’s take on Italian spaghetti with meatballs. Warning: You’ll want to make this over and over again.
Richard Gomez’s Carbonara
Carbonara is one of the simplest pastas you can make. This recipe only needs four ingredients, and one of them is guanciale (but you can also use bacon or ham).
Judy Ann Santos’ Super Spaghetti and Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta
If you’re not that fond of vegetables, these recipes are a good way to slowly incorporate more healthy food into your meals.
Alice Dixson’s Pesto Pasta
In case you didn’t know, pesto is made mostly of basil and olive oil, so it’s another yummy, healthy pasta option for anyone looking to keep it light.
Nadia Montenegro’s Kung Pao Pasta
Let’s change it up with a Chinese dish! She uses chicken breast but if you’re a vegetarian, you can substitute this with eggplant or zucchini. The star of the recipe is the kung pao sauce, which she makes from scratch.
