12 Comforting Pasta Dishes for Fall

When it gets dark early and the evenings are chilly, I crave bowls of warm pasta – baked lasagna, cheesy noodles, spaghetti and meatballs. There is no better comfort than warming carbs, especially when they’re saucy, twisty, meaty and cheesy – exactly what I want to curl up with on the couch in my slouchy socks and PJ pants. Here are some deliciously warming meals to help you welcome winter.
