Nothing drives back the chill of cool fall day like a steaming bowl of pasta. The affordability of pasta also helps you splurge on other ingredients while staying on budget. As you shift gear into cold-weather cooking, try these hearty pasta recipes. 1. Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Crispy bacon, browned ground beef and plenty of shredded Cheddar cheese ensure that this meal will stick to your ribs. Simmer browned ground beef with onions, chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. To the bubbling sauce, add spiral pasta and cook until tender. For the final step, stir in bacon, cheese and chopped dill pickle. 2. Broccoli Pasta Bake Broccoli represents a classic fall vegetable that matures in cool weather and possesses important immunity-boosting vitamins. Choose penne or rigatoni pasta and boil in its own pot. For the last 5 minutes of boiling time, add chopped broccoli florets. The sauce is made with a classic butter and flour roux mixed with milk and seasonings. Drain the pasta and broccoli. Put them in a casserole pan and cover with the sauce. Spread cheeses and bread crumbs and bake until golden crisp on top. 3. Roasted Eggplant Spaghetti Simplicity can deliver the best results. This pasta recipe is as hearty as it is minimalist. To begin, you'll need to peel and chop an eggplant. Toss the pieces with olive oil and salt. Roast in a hot oven until the eggplant is soft. While you're boiling thin spaghetti, make the sauce from butter and miso. Toss the eggplant and pasta with the sauce and serve sprinkled with grated Parmesan. 4. Creamy Seafood Pasta You can tuck yourself into a comfy chair far away from ocean waves crashing in a heavy storm and still savour the taste of the sea. This recipe is somewhat convenient because you'll use a store-bought clam chowder as the base for the sauce. Saute shrimp and mushrooms, and onions. Boil linguine pasta. Bring it all together and serve with chopped parsley and Parmesan cheese.
