Pasta & Grains


What is LC Hump Day Pasta?
LC Hump Day Pasta (#LCHumpDayPasta) is a little something we cooked up to help you on the night of the week that you feel least like cooking. Wednesday was traditionally Prince Spaghetti Day (for those of you old enough to remember). We’ve revamped and updated that to Hump Day and included every type of pasta there is.

So if you make one of our or your favorite pastas and post it on social media, use the #LCHumpDayPasta hashtag, and get even more great ideas for the week.

A brown and white pottery bowl filled with bucatini all'Amatriciana, topped with pecorino and parsley.

Bucatini all’Amatriciana

All’Amatriciana—go on, roll that “r” like they do in Italy—means a spicy pasta sauce of tomatoes and pancetta or bacon. Prego.

A white plate with sesame noodles, garnished with cilantro, peanuts, and sesame seeds, with a fork and a bowl of green onions and soy.

Sesame Noodles

A spicy Asian-inspired noodle bowl can be yours in well under an hour. Peanuts, cilantro, sesame oil, soy sauce–it’s all here.

White Wine Linguine

Elegant yet exceedingly simple, this white wine linguine beguiles with its rich, silken flavor despite the absence of cream and a touch of butter.

A creamy pottery bowl filled with a warm lentil salad, made with green and brown lentils, bacon, shallots and chives.

Warm Lentil Salad

Warm lentil salad, filled with the earthy flavor of lentils, slab bacon, onions, and shallots, is tossed with a walnut oil dressing. A fantastic side dish.

A floral tablecloth with a cellar of pink salt, a plate of cornbread, and a pot of field peas and snap beans along with pot liquor and a chunk of salt pork.

Field Peas and Snap Beans

A pretty quick simmer turns field peas and snap beans into a pot full of Southern perfection. The pot liquor that you end up with is tasty as heck, too.

A light blue plate with a serving of rigatoni pasta covered with beef ragu, garnished with green herbs.

Pasta with Beef Ragu

If you love pasta, then nothing beats a rich and flavorful beef ragu that tastes like it took all day to make. Even better? When it comes together in 2 hours.
