6 exciting new pasta sauces to add to your midweek rotation

Let’s be honest, we will never get tired of having pasta! It’s quick, easy and versatile! If you’re looking for new pasta recipes to add to your repertoire, we’ve got you. Phillippa Cheifitz shares her favourite pasta sauces that are easy for weeknights, but impressive enough for your next Saturday supper!

1. Pumpkin, sage and anchovy fusilli

You need just 6 ingredients and 30 minutes to make this dish. The twisty fusilli catches the smooth sauce beautifully.

2. Mushroom-and-rosemary fettuccine

This may be the easiest mushroom sauce you’ll ever make. For best results, we recommend spooning the sauce over nests of fresh fettuccine.

3. Linguine with mussels

These mussels have a light sauce that’s perfect for linguine. It’s flatter than spaghetti, so the sauce coats each strand. Use any extra mussels in a frittata – discard the shells and mix the mussels into the beaten egg.

4. Tomato-and-basil orecchiette

This tomato-and-basil sauce works well with all small pasta, but orecchiette is Phillippa Cheifitz’s favourite. You can also make a vegetarian version by leaving out the pancetta and adding extra shavings of Parmesan.

6. Lamb tagliatelle

The robust sauce clings to the thick ribbons of tagliatelle in this hearty recipe. You can make meatballs from scratch of course, but if you want to make things easier, opt for ready-made meatballs. No one has to know!
