Unfortunately, for many of us, the closest we come to cooking is walking into our kitchen, opening the fridge door … and abruptly shutting it and ordering takeout. As it turns out, there are plenty of easy pasta recipes available online that require minimal ingredients and very little prep work. (Cha-ching!)

Below are 27 easy pasta recipes that’ll only make it look like you slaved away by the stove. Get ready to drool!

Macaroni and Cheese

    The dinner of my 20s, this dish only takes about 30 minutes of prep (and most of that time is spent waiting for the noodles to cook). There are only four steps, so get ready to be blown away!
