Pasta lovers will be simply delighted this week with this tasty menu. Short, long, spiral or sautéed, check out this range of surprising recipes to cook with various types of pasta/noodles, sauces and toppings.

Monday: Chicken Noodle Soup with Carrot Juice

Here’s a chicken noodle soup that’s full of comfort. Buy whole wheat spaghetti and break it up to quickly create short noodles, then add carrot juice for a completely reinvented broth.

Tuesday: Orzo with Shrimp and Chorizo

Here’s to a budget meal, thanks to this orzo dish. By choosing small shrimp instead of the bigger ones at the grocery store, you can easily prepare dinner for $3 per serving. Be sure to remember this tip!

Wednesday: Japanese Soba Noodles with Rolled Omelette

Sure, we could have developed this recipe with chicken or pork strips, but we preferred to load it up with vegetables and slices of rolled omelette, inspired by yakisoba (grilled soba noodles). A vegetarian dish the whole family will love!

Thursday: Pasta Carbonara (The Best)

Enjoy our best pasta carbonara this evening! Did you know that this classic Italian dish is normally prepared without cream or bacon? Pancetta is the ideal, because it adds just the right amount of saltiness and umami to create the perfect balance of flavours. And it’s egg yolks and cheese that take care of the creaminess.

Friday: Stir-Fried Noodles with Vegetables

This dish is hearty enough to feed even the most famished among you. Here’s a no-frills recipe that works with almost all varieties of noodles. The secret lies in the sauce, made with Thai seasoning, oyster sauce, crushed red pepper flakes and a good dose of fresh cilantro!
