Here's our top 10 pasta dishes we created for the MOB. Check 'em out.

The weather is getting a little wetter and the winter nights are drawing in, making this our favourite time of year to go to town on cooking comfort food. There isn’t a food group more comforting than pasta, so we have compiled a list of our all-time favourites for you to choose from.

Charred Spring Onion and Chorizo Rigatoni

We are massive fans of chorizo, and what better way to elevate it than to combine it with charred spring onions and almonds in an unbelievable pasta sauce. This dish is big. Check it out here.

Rigatoni is the perfect pasta shape for this dish. It collects all the beautiful sauce within.

The Ultimate Carbonara

Everybody needs a classic carbonara recipe under their belt, and this one is a belter. Leave the cream in the fridge, it has absolutely no place here. Pepper, smoked bacon, egg yolk, parmesan & pasta water. The stuff dreams are made of. Give it a go MOB.

There's no way our carbonara was missing this list. It's timeless. It's delicious. If you haven't tried it yet, then we have nothing to say to you.

Roast Garlic Linguine

This recipe is one of our most popular of all time, and with good reason. Roasted garlic mixed with pasta water and parmesan makes the sexiest the sauce to coat your linguine. You will make this one time and time again. Find the full recipe here.

Pasta water is key in this one. It will make this the silkiest sauce imagineable.

MOB Kitchen's Lasagne

We’ve uncovered the secret to making you the most tender and rich ragu, making this lasagne the best you’ve ever had. Layer it with a parmesan-spiked bechamel and lasagne sheets for the ultimate comfort food dish. Check it out MOB.

We think we've perfected the lasagne. Give it a go and let us know what you think.

Casarrece Con Salsicca

This recipe is great because you barely have to chop anything, so after 20 minutes of easy-breezy stirring you can serve up a saucy bowl of spicy sausage pasta, which is the best type of pasta in our opinion. This dish was a favourite at Ben's Dad's Italian restaurant, Cibo, and it’s a favourite with us too.

It's important to get the sausage bits nice and crispy with this one.

Garlicky Cavolo Nero and Caper Spaghetti

Dark leafy greens and pasta coming together perfectly here. Spaghetti loaded up with capers and parmesan, this simple dish is one of the finest in the land, and a really good way to get some vitamins in you alongside your pasta. Here's the recipe.

This one might seem left-field but we can assure you it's a classic. The cavolo nero and the capers work so well together.

Chorizo Mac and Cheese

If you want to elevate your mac and cheese game, adding smoky and spicy chorizo is the way. Even mac and cheese purists won’t be able to turn this one down. Full recipe here.

We all love a mac and cheese. If you haven't whacked some chorizo in before, your life is going to change.
