Pasta dishes are comforting and remind many people of the warmth of home. For the Pasta Challenge, we want to see what go to and special pasta dishes you hold close to your heart.

There will be two grand prizes for this challenge, one for imaginative use of pasta in their recipe or creation, and another for homemade pasta! Prizes include an Atlas Pasta Machine, stainless steel cooking equipment, and Instructables prize pack! Get out your colanders and sauce pans and show off what you’re cooking up.
