20 Hearty Pasta Dishes

From Jambalaya Noodle Dishes to Lobster Ravioli Dinners

— June 19, 2015 — Lifestyle
These hearty pasta dishes range from traditional noodle recipes to exotic creations with more unexpected ingredients. As casual dining establishments become more quality-focused, their gourmet references are being translated to meals that blend convenience with great taste.

Favorites include hearty pasta dishes from businesses like Sbarro, Carrabba's and Panera Bread among others. While Sbarro's Pasta Ziti and Spaghetti and Meatball menu items put a twist on tradition, food brands like Fazoli's are appealing to a familial demographic with flavor samplers and baked pasta recipes. These menu items are favorites among kids and parents alike, remixing traditional Italian meals for a consumer who leads a busy lifestyle.

In addition to being convenient for those on the go, these hearty pasta meals are also affordable.
