(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

When it comes to weeknight cooking, pasta rules in our household. A hot dish of pasta, cooked up quickly, with a sprinkling of fresh cheese and herbs or a quick sausage sauce — it has all the fullness of a truly homecooked meal, with the ease of takeout. Here are twenty-two (yes, twenty-two!) pasta dishes from our archives that are fast, fresh, and just right for now.

Most of these are very quick, like eat in an hour sort of quick. Others take a little extra preparation, but if you roast squash or simmer a sauce the night before, it can feed you a couple meals during the week.
