6x the best pasta recipes for carb lovers

Cutting carbs: I sometimes do it. If I’m in a period where I’m trying to lose fat, I adjust my macros accordingly and end up avoiding carbs at dinner time. But in an ideal world, I would love to eat a whole lot of carbs all day long. Delicious stuffed sandwiches in the day and pastas in the night (Especially with some more bread with olive oil and salt next to it). Yep, I’m a real carb lover. So a list with the best pasta recipes naturally had to show up sometime on here!
