What Is Your Best Quick, Last-Minute Pasta Recipe?

Reader Intelligence

Earlier today we offered you 15 of our most popular pasta recipes. But now, let's talk about quick recipes. Not all pasta recipes are quick (hello, lasagna). On a busy weeknight, though, a quick pasta recipe is just the thing. What are your best quick recipes? Or, since these often can't even be called recipes, what are your best quick pasta templates and toppings?

Here are a few of my own favorites, pulled from our archives:

Pasta with Feta, Broccoli, and Sausage
Lemony Pesto Pasta with Edamame & Almonds
Lemon Pepper Pasta with Capers

What do you do with pasta when you're in a hurry?
