Basil and roasted soybean pesto with tomatoes and angel hair pasta. Generous with the garlic, red pepper flakes, and parmigiano reggiano. My thing.

picking my favourite pasta dish is harder than picking my favourite family member.

I just make pasta with a sauce I make myself. I make the sauce by...

1. Cook random ingredients that will work like mushrooms, carrot, bell pepper, greens, that kind of stuff.
2. Take off heat and mix in corn flower (little bit of gravy powder too because why not)
3. Mix in stock (and a little Italian seasoning put in the stock)
4. Mix in milk and put back on heat, letting it boil and thicken.
5. LIQUIDIZE
6. The sauce is made. Let it stay on the heat for a while if you want to make sure it's all nicely done.

I usually have chicken with the pasta and the sauce.

Lasagna is the best, although chicken fettuccine Alfredo is also good.

I do not really like pasta but if I had to pick one it would probably be lasagna

Risotto is probably the best. I love making pumpkin risotto (and eating it). Adding wine to risotto also has perfect synergy because risotto takes darn long to cook so it's nice that you just opened a bottle of wine.

Of course! Also, I realized risotto obviously isn't pasta... it's rice. Doh. I'm not the best risotto chef but it's an easy meal if you have a lot of time.

For four people, you will need: 1 large onion, two cloves of garlic, about 1 liter of veggie stock, 1 pumpkin, italian herbs, 300 grams of risotto rice, parmesan cheese.

First, preheat your oven to 370f/190c. Dice the pumpkin (don't remove the peel).
Add about 2 tbs of olive oil to a bowl and add some oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary/whatever sounds like should be in an italian dish. Toss the pumpkin cubes around in the bowl until they are coated. Transfer to an oven rack that's lined with a baking sheet. Set timer for 20 minutes.

Dice a large onion and melt a little butter and olive oil in a pan. Glaze the onion in the pan while you dice 2 cloves of garlic. Add those to the pan, too. Also add some black pepper. Boil the water to make the stock.

Now add the rice and stir. Let sit for about 1 minute. Add some white wine (about a cup). Pour yourself a glass. When the wine is absorbed by the rice, add a cup of veggie stock. Make sure the rice is boiling softly, stir occasionally. Add some stock when the rice goes dry or when you're getting impatient (also: drink more wine).
Taste occasionally. When the rice is soft, add the pumpkin cubes and mix it together. Load up your plate and sprinkle with parmesan.

Ok, it's not super healthy, but it's comfort food and it's delicious. Add pine nuts or walnuts if you think the dish is too boring.
To be honest, you could very well leave out the wine, but you shouldn't. :P

Thank you very much. I assume the pumpkin is baked ahead of time?

I like many different pasts dishes, so out of the ones listed, I like Fettuccine Alfredo best, with lasagna as a close second.
