Your favorite pasta dishes?

I love a good lasagna. Angel hair pasta with meat sauce. Thai or other Asian dishes with glass noodles. Ramen. While I'm not a fan of mac and cheese, a place we go to in Mexico serves wonderful lobster mac and cheese with penne and sprinkled with crushed Cheetos.

I forgot to include lasagna on my list - as long as it's a Bolognese lasagna with no ricotta.

Mmmm.....pasta. I've been on a stuffed shells kick for a couple of years now. I love them stuffed with a mixture of crumbled sweet Italian sausage, egg, spinach, ricotta, parm, and topped with mozzarella.

Other than that, I'd have to say lasagna, cold orzo salads with lots of crunchy veggies, angel hair with alfredo, and mac and cheese are among my faves.

Stuffed shells from a few months ago...

i was surprised to find that, with enough sauce, it really does taste like spaghetti!

I love all kinds of pasta dishes, too. Some of my favorites:

- lasagna
- spaghetti with meatballs and marinara sauce
- spaghetti with meat-tomato-bell pepper-garlic-onion sauce
- mac 'n cheese - traditional or with jalapeno - I made it with cavatappi last night
- lobster ravioli with roasted red pepper-cream sauce
- Asian chicken pasta salad
- Thai satay pasta salad
- tuna pasta salad
- stuffed shells with seasoned ricotta topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella
- stuffed shells with Italian chopped salad

I agree with Andy that X Parmesan, X marsala and X piccata are not pasta dishes; pasta is generally served on the side of those dishes, but it's not the main event.

For sauced pasta, it depends on the sauce and our mood. I really like bucatini or rigati with Sunday Gravy. Potato gnocchi it can be a red sauce or brown butter-sage sauce. Lobster ravioli gets a red bell pepper sauce. Butternut squash ravioli gets the brown butter-sage sauce for sure. There is a homemade spinach pasta and onion sauce in this thread:

ISO TNT Recipe for spinach-flavored pasta (green pasta)

There are many others, but I'm in the middle of browning onions for a soup.
As a kid, my mother used to buy bucatini all the time. I loved the little hole in the ends and always tried to suck up any sauce left on my plate. "Stop playing with your food. That is not a soda you are trying to suck up!"

I bought it once for Pirate and now he wants it all the time. Pastene is the only brand I can find it in. Almost $2 a package. Not on my grocery list that often.

There's not too much i don't like.

I recently discovered bucatini and love the stuff.
With that said, linguini I love, and can take or leave
angle hair.

My favorite dishes are:

traditional marinara with linguini
bucatini all' amatriciana
lasagna (with lots of ricotta)
spaghetti alla vongole
puttanesca

I do a thing and don't know what it's called.
I sauté shrimp in butter, olive, garlic, bail, and parsley.
Then pour over a bed of linguini; add pecorino to top.
Sometimes I use clams.

I love my Carbonara, but lasagna and Penne a la Vodka are right up there as well.
