Anyone who works a typical working schedule knows well the stress of making dinner. By the time you get out of the office, pick up what you need at the store and walk into your door, cooking is the absolute last thing you want to do. (We feel the same way, and we HuffPots Taste editors generally love to cook.)

We've found a solution to this dinner dilemma: 30-minute (or less!) pasta recipes. While it's true that even a 30-minute recipe requires you to stand up when all you want to do is lie on the couch, at the end of that half hour you get to enjoy a home-cooked meal (on the couch, if you want). And that's worth it.
