One thing I really like about pasta is the simplicity and speed with which these dishes can be created. In addition, pasta recipes are usually very flexible, allowing for endless combinations and customizations. Although I only made the super simple spaghetti with meat sauce, you could easily add clams, mussels, and/or shrimp for a seafood pasta. Another fun option might be making spaghetti with meatballs, a meal that reminds me of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, the story of Chewandswallow, a land where food falls from the sky three times a day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But don't get too jealous - the residents are forced to leave when the giant food storms and floods arrive and adapt to a new life where food doesn't fall from the sky!
