Successful and satisfying dinners don't have to require many ingredients or take a lot of time to prepare. In fact, some of the most tried-and-true standbys come together in mere minutes with everyday essentials from the pantry, including crowd-pleasing pastas. Just a box of noodles and a fuss-free sauce are all it takes to pull off tonight's family meal, and when you use Giada De Laurentiis' recipe for Linguini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Olives and Lemon (pictured above), you don't even have to cook the sauce.

Ready to eat in only 17 minutes, Giada's bold pasta stars a raw sauce of rich, chewy sun-dried tomatoes, tangy green olives and plenty of fresh basil. For easy prep, she opts to whirl these go-to fixings in the food processor alongside a squeeze of lemon juice for brightness and a heavy handful of nutty Parmesan cheese. There's no need to cook the sauce, as the heat of the just-drained pasta will gently warm the tomato mixture as they're combined.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
