2. Gemelli with Roasted Garlic and Cauliflower

Helen Rosner /

Bold, unexpected ingredients — in this dish, it's the cumin, raisins, and toasted almonds — can do a pasta good. Recipe here.

3. Parisian Gnocchi with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Corn, and Zucchini

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt /

This flour-based gnocchi is far easier than its potato-based cousin; the dough comes together in a pot on the stove, then you squeeze it out of a bag into a pot of boiling water, cutting little dumplings with a knife. Recipe here.

5. Linguine with Lemon, Garlic, Thyme, and Mushrooms

James Ransom /

It doesn't look like much, but the genius of the recipe is that the only thing you actually cook is the pasta. Recipe here.

20. One-Pan Pasta

Marcus Nilsson /

The vegetables go in the pan with the pasta and water, and the whole thing cooks until the pasta is al dente, the vegetables are soft, and the water is nearly gone. Recipe here.

23. Orzo Cooked Risotto-Style with Shiitakes and Garlic Scapes

Good news: You can recreate this year-round by subbing a combination of sliced garlic and scallions for the garlic scapes. Recipe here.
