So, pasta is on the menu. Good. Now — what to serve with it? If you're having a rich, creamy pasta, then you probably want something fresh and light to cut through all that richness. Or if you're having a hearty baked pasta, you may want something else roasted as well — cabbage, perhaps? Or carrots? Take a look through 12 of my favorite dishes to accompany pasta. Fennel slaw, a classic Italian iceberg chopped salad, braised romaine and more...
