ok, so I'm going to cook dinner for a new guy, I am a good cook, however, cooking for someone new always makes me nervous! He mentioned he liked pasta. Does anyone know a nice, simple pasta recipe I could try? Prefer linguine or bow-tie pasta if possible! thanks!! (maybe something with chicken?)

I'd go to Giada Delaurentis', from food channel. I bet you'd find something different and good there.

Ever made your own pasta?

It's not hard; although you really should have a machine.

Eggs, flour and salt for basic pasta - of course you can add cheeses, flavorings - sky's the limit!

Oh, I don't think I want to attempt homemade pasta!! I would have to practice that by myself first!

I like bowties with chicken, broccoli or asparagus, with garlic, shallots, chicken broth tomatoes, red pepper flakes and a touch of butter. It always turns out great, and its easy.

Broccoli and bowtie pasta with Italian sausage (out of the casing), garlic and oil, red pepper,white wine and you can add chicken broth for some liquid. You don't want it to tight but also not soupy. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve with a salad.
