Making it onto this record of our greatest pasta recipes is type of an enormous deal. We tried to rely what number of pasta dishes we have developed over the course of this publication’s historical past and we acquired to 407 earlier than calling it quits—and making ourselves an enormous plate of noodles. (This one.) So you possibly can think about what a painstaking course of it was to whittle down this record to simply 53 recipes. However, fueled by kimchi mac and cheese, we did it. You’ll discover the buttery crimson wine spaghetti; aglio e olio with kale, a.okay.a. an absurd quantity of wilted greens drenched in olive oil, tossed with noodles, and dusted with crimson pepper flakes and parm; and the anchovy-laced, breadcrumb-topped bucatini that one nameless reviewer summarizes as: “Simple, low cost, fast, and scrumptious!” What else may anybody ask for?
