Meal #36: Pasta Dinners

For those nights when you just don't have the 12 minutes to cook dried fettuccine, reach for refrigerated fresh pasta: It's done in about two minutes. The texture is deliciously different: more delicate, with a slightly springy bounce. Yet, it's not too refined for a bold Bolognese, a meatball treatment, or a creamy vodka-tomato sauce. Fast Fact: These pasta dishes are ready, beautifully, in under half an hour.

For our first pasta menu: This Creamy Spring Pasta dish is luxuriously creamy, but the pasta soaks up the sauce quickly. Be sure to serve right away.
