Over 25 Easy Weeknight Pasta Dinner. This Gal Cooks for Spoonful of Flavor

Hi All! This is Julie from This Gal Cooks. I blog about my love of all things food and recipes that are perfect for any occasion. I’m totally crazy for craft beer and you can almost always win me over with a big ole plate of Mexican food or a huge scoop of peanut butter.

I’m super excited to be sharing this amazing collection of Over 25 Easy Weeknight Pasta Dinners with you while Ashley is on vacation. Most of us have busy lives and don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen during the week. Whether you’re busy due to work, shuttling the kids around or getting caught up on house work, a tasty dinner should never be at stake.

In this collection, you will find a variety of pasta recipes that require little work or that can be on the table in under an hour. These recipes don’t skimp on taste and your family is sure to love them. Enjoy!
