5 Easy Homemade Pasta Recipes for One (or 2) When You're Too Busy to Cook

Sometimes, but especially at this time of the year, we're just too busy to make anything after work and too often we'll reach for something easy, or a pre-made frozen meal. That's not to say there aren't any nutritious frozen meals out there, but there's nothing quite like the taste of freshly made pasta on a weeknight to give you the comfort (and carbs) you need. If we had to create a list of our favorite foods, the Italian signature would be in our top five. It is just the most satisfying meal and the best part is how quickly you can whip it up when you're in a pinch. 

It's also the perfect meal to make when you're only cooking for one or two people because you can really manage the portion size and store away the leftovers for lunch the next day. So we tapped April Anderson, author of Gourmet Cooking for One (Or Two) to share five of her favorite pasta recipes (one is a lasagna recipe) that tick all the boxes when you're busy: quick, easy, and healthy. Read on to make these deliciously simple homemade pasta recipes for one tonight.
