5 creamy pastas to curb your craving

Is there anything more comforting than pasta? No matter the weather, a bowl of pasta will always hit the spot and adding a creamy sauce into the mix takes the indulgence up a notch. We’ve rounded up five of our favourite creamy pasta recipes for when the craving hits.

Not in the mood to make a whole layered lasagne? Sam Woulidge’s genius recipe can be made with any pasta of your choice and uses crème fraîche instead of white sauce to save you some time. It can also be adapted to make a layered lasagne.

4. Ravioli with Gorgonzola cream

This is the easiest pasta you’ll ever make. Using Woolworths’ fresh spinach-and-ricotta ravioli and fresh butternut pansotti reduces the cooking time to just 20 minutes. It’s served with lemony greens to cut through the richness of the Gorgonzola cream to strike the perfect balance.

5. Classic macaroni cheese with bacon

You can’t have a creamy pasta round-up without including mac and cheese. And this recipe is extra creamy! Made with milk and cream, the secret to this recipe is a good roux as the base of the sauce.
