These regional specialties will take you from Liguria to Sicily. They'll solve pretty much any pasta situation you may have, from a weekend project like making pasta from scratch (don't have a pasta machine? There are hand-cut options, too) to dinner in under 15 minutes. Maybe you have nothing in the fridge or are in need of a comforting dish to shoo away the winter blues? Or you need a make-ahead dinner party dish or a last-minute lunch? Here are 14 pastas that are here for you.
