20 Easy Summer Pasta Recipes For Warm Days

During the warm summer months, many people prefer to avoid spending too much time in a hot kitchen. Instead, they often take their dinners outdoors, embracing grilling recipes and other alfresco dining options. However, there’s no need to abandon your favorite family meals just because the temperature rises, especially when it comes to pasta recipes. The key is to choose summer pasta recipes that are simple and refreshing, such as a cold sesame noodle salad with seared steak or a vibrant lemon pasta that can be prepared in just 25 minutes.

There are also numerous lighter, healthy pasta recipes that highlight the fresh produce of the season. Look for pasta dishes that incorporate ingredients like corn, tomatoes, and zucchini to make the most of summer’s bounty.

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy shrimp pasta recipes, as the crustaceans are in season. For a light dish suitable for a cookout, consider trying Ree’s famous macaroni salad. And if the weather cools down at night or a summer storm rolls in, a comforting creamy pasta dish can be a delightful choice.

Life is full of pasta possibilities, and these summer pasta recipes will help you enjoy the season to the fullest.
