An easy-peasy yet flavorful weeknight meal!
This kind of weather makes us want to cozy up with a warm bowl of comfort...ideally one that isn't a huge hassle to prepare. This easy pasta recipe is a riff on an Italian-American classic but with the brilliant swap out of gochujang chili paste instead of tomato sauce for a spicy kick. The best part? Chopping is optional! Plus it's ready in less than 30 minutes. What's not to love?

Don’t call us shallow but we love this low rider version of our original braiser in an eye-catching shade of lavender. Not only is it super versatile - use it for quick pasta dishes, soups, sauces, and so much more - but it also acts as a statement piece that will beautify any stovetop. Plus, the interior is coated in nonstick enamel to make cooking and cleanup even easier.
We call them Chrissy's faves for a reason—between this saucepan, skillet, and a universally useful multipurpose pan, you can cook pretty much anything. All three feature aluminum core induction for even cooking and double-layer stainless steel, and the skillet and cook-anything pan feature non-toxic nonstick coating. This stunning, gold-handled set includes the all-day, everyday essentials that make kitchen life chic and easy.
