Five Types of Italian Pasta That Are Easy To Make

 

Aglio E Olio

It's weird how a dish so light can taste so rich and be so fulfilling. It's almost like a fantasy food of some sort. However, the Aglio Olio pasta from Naples is very much real. Minced garlic mixed well with olive oil drenching some nice smooth spaghetti pasta. With every swirl, you feel the oil just dripping, a melody of savory tastes with every drop. This kind of pasta is so mouth-watering that you barely even need any other ingredient to fill you up. Of course, having some meat would be nice, but that's just secondary. Here, the pasta and the sauce are enough!

Carbonara

Now, how about something creamier? The classic Carbonara pasta has since become a heavy favorite among Italians and foreigners alike. When you think of pasta, most often than not, you think of rich tomato sauces, made lighter with cheese or cream. But here, this cream-based white sauce is already lighter than air. Though mixed with ingredients to still give off a rich taste, the balance is completely delectable. It's no wonder why it's become one of the most popular types of pasta outside of Italy. When you want a dish that's not too heavy but will still guarantee a full stomach, this is your best bet!

Pasta Con Pomodoro E Basilico

Now, for something more standard but still delicious. The Pasta Con Pomodoro E Basilico is what you might consider as the most classic of pasta types. It has red sauce, parmesan cheese, olive oil, red basil, and more. It's the sort of dish that makes you remember the Mediterranean lifestyle of which it originated from. It's the type of pasta that you imagine an old but strong Italian grandmother making in her kitchen as the kids play in the garden, waiting for her to finish and to serve it. If you really want to get the feel of Italy in your own home, this is what you should make!

Spaghetti All’Amatriciana

It's relatively rare for pasta to taste so spicy. Italian cuisine is all about the richness of their flavors, not the zest of their spices. However, if you're one to enjoy something hot every now and again, you can make Spaghetti All’Amatriciana. As rich a red sauce as it can get, this pasta type is also very spicy. It's all in the red pepper flake and a few chilis for that extra zing. What's so great about it is, at first, it might taste like your ordinary red sauce pasta. But as you enjoy it further, suddenly the temperature rises up and you're practically sweating. The thickness of the tomato base lets the spice creep up on you!

Spaghetti Con Le Acciughe

Ready for more spaghetti? Make Spaghetti Con Le Acciughe next! It's a scrumptious seafood pasta that might just turn you pescatarian. The star of this meal is the anchovy and this is where you'll really appreciate it the most. In other dishes, the small fish tastes obscure and you feel as if it could do without it. However, in this type of pasta, it's what makes the flavor truly pop out. The mix of the olive oil, anchovies, garlic, basil, and even some red pepper flakes for a bit of spice brings about a tingling sensation you'd want to experience again!
