Foodie Friday: Spring Pasta Recipes & Cooks Tools

( Via Amazon)

Pasta is a perfect dish all year round, but come Spring you might want to lighten things up with the vegetables of the season. Don't worry, these recipes are still layered with flavor, cheese and cream. Use a lighter hand, and your Summer clothing will thank you for doing so.  I have also included some very nifty cooks tools that any top chef would love. Mangia!

Herbed Fazzoletti with Asparagus and Burrata
If you are like me, you may be wondering what is fazzoletti? Nothing too fancy, fazzoletti is just pasta sheets cut in squares. We can do that, right? I love the deconstructed look of this very modern dish.
Food and Wine

Spaghetti alla Primavera
Could anything look more fresh? An interesting note, this recipe was the 1975 creation of Sirio Maccioni of famed Le Cirque restaurant in New York City.

90+ Point Red Wine Trio
What's a pasta dish without a little vino? This trio consists of three 90+ rated wines. I have personally gifted this set with rave reviews.

Baby Pea, Asparagus, Prosciutto & Kale Spaghetti
But wait, the title goes on. Added to this yummy dish is lemon and Macadamia Pangratto. Do click thru to see what else you will find in this springtime sensation.

Fresh Fig Arugula and Pancetta Pasta

Spoon Fork Bacon

Spring Quinoa Risotto
{Gluten Free}
Quinoa is full of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and phytonutrients making it lighter but more nutritious than risotto rice. I realize that risotto is not pasta, but it makes a darn delicious substitute.

Spinach and Artichoke Linguine
This easy to create pasta dish gets its creaminess from mascarpone, ricotta, and fresh Parmesan cheese. It would make a chic choice as a first course for company.
How Sweet It Is

Rachael Ray Hard-Anodized 8 Qt. Covered Pasta Pot
I think this pot is genius. There is room for the pasta to be totally submersed in water from the get go. And the built in pouring spout is such a helpful detail. This is also the best price I can find on this perfect pot.

Spaghetti And Crab
Chosen because this image is just too pretty to pass up. This recipe calls for something called "raw blue swimmer crabs." I wonder if my fishmonger at Whole Foods carries them?
Gourmet Traveller

Pappardelle with Arugula and Prosciutto
With a prep time of only 20 minutes, this is a very sophisticated looking dish. Simple but impressive.
Bon Appetit

Artichoke Ravioli With Tomatoes
This colorful recipe is topped off with a bubbling sauce of cream, fresh plum tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese.

Ravioli Stamps
My mother had something like these. Authentic from Italy, this set makes it easy to seal and cut ravioli in one motion.

15-Minute Zucchini Pasta w/ Poached Eggs and Quick Heirloom Cherry Tomato Basil Sauce
Forget 30 minute meals. This fresh find can be done in half the time.
Half Baked Harvest

Alessi "Pasta Pot" Pasta Cooking Unit
For the contemporary cook. The set comes with a saucepan, a lid, a spoon, a trivet and cookbook. 

Spaghetti Pan-Fried with Ramps & Mint
This recipe leans on the onion-y flavor of the ramps that is infused into the pasta. The mint adds the brightness of Spring.
