Fast and easy weekday pasta Recipes: Food and Wine

Towards the end of the week dinner ideas become scarce and it's easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to diversifying weekly meals. Luckily, Food and Wine website has compiled a list of fast weekday pasta recipes along with unique and exciting wine pairings!  

Here are two recipes perfect for spring!

"At Alto, Michael White uses dandelion greens to give his slightly spicy sausage pasta a bitter edge, but chicory or escarole makes a great stand-in."

Wine Pairing: Food and Wine suggests a cherry-full Docetto D'Alba, like the Montaribaldi Docetto D'Alba

"In adapting this recipe from executive chef Shea Gallante at Cru in New York City, F&W's Marcia Kiesel traded a labor-intensive fresh pasta for pre-made wonton wrappers and was thrilled with the results. Wonton wrappers are milder-tasting than fresh pasta, which makes them a better showcase for the nutty brown butter, delicate young pecorino cheese and fresh marjoram."

Wine Pairing: Food and Wine suggests a full-bodied Italian white blend, like the Enodelta Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco
