While nothing can beat the joy of cooking fresh pasta at home, store bought variety works well for the busy bees. Remember thicker pasta shapes go well with more consistent, heavier sauces, while chunkier sauces are suited for pasta with ridges or holes. As for noodles toss them up you’re your favourite oriental sauce and have a delicious meal ready in a jiffy. Left over mains of pasta and noodles make great ingredients for salads, soups, bakes and croquettes the next day!
