This is a call-out to all those who are:
(b) tired of eating potatoes, and
(c) lovers of all breeds and varieties of pasta.
Here are 4 taste-bud-torturing visuals of pasta recipes that can be prepared within seconds! Don’t believe me? Well, these recipes are made using just 3 ingredients, and pasta, of course. How much time can it possibly take to join pasta with just THREE ingredients in holy matrimony?
Psst, you also get to consummate, umm, consume this matrimony! Scroll down and read!
1. A Light And Citrusy Meal That Wll Fill You Up
Lemon juice and zest, thinly sliced pancetta and pitted black olives give this spaghetti dish a lovely balance of tart and salty flavors. Any black olive will work, though we find that the fruity taste of kalamata and Gaeta olives nicely complements the flavors of the lemon and ham.

2. Creamed Spinach, Reinvented With Carbs
A bag of fresh spinach has infinite possibilities — omelet, salad, quiche, side dish — yet one we don’t often think of is tossing it with hot pasta. Its heat (fettuccine is particularly good with this sauce) quickly wilts the nutritious green and the pasta takes beautifully to rich, smooth cream and a smattering of grated Parmesan.

3. The Fast Track To A Dish That Tastes Like It’s Been Cooking For Hours
Sausage is a flavor bomb on its own; use it to build a pasta dish and you won’t need to do much to end up with a perfectly salted, savory meal. Remove the meat from the casing and crumble it into the pan, cook it until it browns then add parboiled broccoli florets (you can also use cauliflower or broccoli rabe). It’s great tossed with orecchiette, shells, or any other pasta shaped like a cup that can scoop up bits of meat and vegetable.

4. A Use For Sage That Anyone Will Love
Sage is known for how well it pairs with meat, yet it shines in this vegetarian dish thanks to one very supportive partner: butter. It doesn’t take long to make a silky, herbaceous sauce out of the two; and while rich, cheese-filled ravioli is the obvious choice for pasta, any medium-size cut pasta, such as mezze rigatoni, orecchiette or gnocchi are great, too.
