Let’s be honest, pasta tastes great by itself. Pasta tastes even better when you add in a killer sauce and “toppings” like meatballs, cheese, vegetables, etc. When it comes to deciding what to put into your pasta dish, it’s totally personal preference. Some people prefer certain things over another, but I bet there are some foods you would have never thought to pair with pasta. Here’s a list of ten foods that surprisingly taste great with pasta.

1. Nuts (pecans or sliced almonds)

2. Avocado

3. Fruit (strawberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple)

4. Beans (black beans or chickpeas)

5. Fried egg

6. Bacon

7. Pistachios

8. Olives

9. Peanut butter (for peanut sauces)

10. Artichokes

This list can go on and on! Raid your kitchen and use your imagination to create a delicious pasta dish.
