Simple, yummy pasta dishes anyone?

I make pasta a lot. I like to make it with a butter garlic sauce and whatever veggies i have (usually tomato and spinach.)
I was hoping to find some good pasta dishes that don't take to long to make and that are not to expensive. Anyone have any good ones?

When we make pasta as a meal we'll use pasta sauce and then add some garlic, oregano and a little thyme. It makes a huge difference and if we have enough bread we'll toast it and put a little butter and garlic on it.

This is just a lunch, but I make Pastina, cut up some canned tomatoes, add a bit of shredded cheese and salt and pepper and toss it up.

Maybe look up a recipe for Chicken Riggies, too. That's a pasta dish everyone does a bit differently.

We like to add mushrooms, peas, onions, garlic powder, salt and pepper to cheap pasta sauce. Sometimes we add ground turkey and/or red pepper flakes.

I take pasta, sauce, Italian herb seasonings and three cups of mozzarella cheese, mix it all together (reserving some cheese for the top), and bake 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
