October is the perfect month to celebrate all things pasta. Not only does National Pasta Day fall on October 17, this time of year is also one of the best seasons for creamy, hearty fall pasta dishes. If you’re looking to cozy up with a bowl of something delicious, try one of our favorite fall pasta dishes this month:
October is the perfect month to make this fall pasta dish, as wild mushrooms start showing up at farmer’s markets everywhere. We create a simple sauce with fresh wild mushrooms, garlic, butter, and a little pasta water. Combine that with our al dente Casarrece pasta and you have an elegant dish that’s easy to make for a quick dinner.
This from-scratch sauce takes hours to prepare—but it’s worth every minute. With honest-to-goodness ingredients and tender hunks of braised beef, this ragù is so good you’ll want to eat it with a spoon. However, we recommend serving it over hearty Fusilli so you can maximize the amount of sauce you get in every bite.
