5 Perfect Pasta Recipes for Spring

Give pasta night a seasonal spin with our freshest recipes, sponsored by IKEA®

Step aside, tulips, daisies and daffodils. Make room for spring’s true garden stars: crisp asparagus, crunchy carrots and sweet peas. With warmer temperatures comes a rainbow of veggies and host of fresh ingredients. So deck out your next pasta dish with the finest flavors of the season, whether you prefer a twirled forkful of linguine or a bowlful of cheesy ravioli.

Colorful pastas deserve a presentation to match. Be sure to serve your dishes in unique tableware that adds personality and a pop of color to your spread. Here are seven ways to add zest to your next pasta night, with help from our partner, IKEA®.

1 Carrot Top

This vibrant recipe is the ultimate carrot trifecta: pickled carrots, carrot pesto and fresh carrot tops. A generous sprinkle of Parmesan creates an even earthier linguine feast.

2 Pop of Color

3 Peas, Please

Put some spring in your step with a savory pea shoot pesto and tender cavatelli. The bright lemon and spicy chile flakes give the pesto an extra kick.

4 Mac and Cheese Makeover

Add Austrian inspiration to your spring menu with spaetzle, or egg noodles. With Gruyère, asparagus, herbs and peas, this dish is both rich and zingy.

5 All in the Details
