10. PASTA ALL'ARRABBIATA

9. PASTA AL PESTO

Whether you pair your pesto with trofie, a twisted, spiral-shaped pasta, or long trenette, a linguine-like shape named for "train tracks," there's an endless variety of ways to enjoy the traditional basil pesto native to Liguria. Named for the word pestare, meaning "to crush," it's no wonder that this enduring, tasty sauce was a popular pick for a year of cooking at home.

4. AGNOLOTTI DEL PLIN 

If we had to choose one recipe to represent our birthplace, Torino, it would be this one! Agnolotti del Plin is an iconic pasta dish typical of the Piemonte region These veal-stuffed ravioli get their name from the regional dialect plin, meaning "pinch," since each agnolotto is a pinched shut to create small pouches.
