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.
