There are many Pioneer Woman pasta dishes but some are more popular than others. That’s where Ree Drummond’s pasta recipe videos come in. Food Network’s compiled a list of the celebrity chef’s most popular recipe videos. 

1. Macaroni and Cheese

First up on the list of Drummond’s pasta recipe videos (see Food Network’s video with all five on YouTube) is the food blogger-turned cooking show host’s Macaroni and Cheese. 

Drummond has an easy mac and cheese shortcut for her extra cheesy take on the classic pasta dish. She opts for a certain store-bought block of processed cheese to make it really creamy. She also tosses in other types of cheese for depth of flavor and, of course, more creaminess.

Additionally, she has other variations — Fancy Mac and Cheese to name just one — but the classic has earned a spot as one of Drummond’s most popular pasta recipe videos.

2. Stuffed Shells

Cheesy, gooey pasta continues with Drummond’s recipe for Stuffed Shells. Listed as one of Drummond’s most-watched pasta recipe videos, it’s easy to see why viewers can’t get enough of Pioneer Woman Stuffed Shells. 

The Food Network star, who films Pioneer Woman in Oklahoma, uses four different types of cheese — yes, four — ranging from Romano and ricotta to mozzarella and Parmesan. Once it’s all assembled she bakes it in the oven for an easy meal any night of the week. 

Additionally, the Super Easy cookbook author doesn’t bother with homemade sauce. She uses jarred marinara, something her fellow Food Network star Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten does too. 

3. Chicken Mozzarella Pasta

Drummond’s Chicken Mozzarella Pasta is one of her quick pasta dishes with a 16-minute cook time. She uses a storebought ingredient, jarred marinara sauce, to make the cooking process faster and easier. 

A simple pasta recipe that’s ready in less than 20 minutes? No wonder it’s made the list of Drummond’s pasta recipe videos.

4. Lasagna

Yet another classic pasta dish is on Food Network’s list of Drummond’s pasta recipe videos. Again, this is one of those dishes the Pioneer Woman host has made different versions of over the years. Lasagna Dip, Sheet Pan Lasagna, and White Lasagna Soup are just a few of Drummond’s lasagna variations.

Similar to her Macaroni and Cheese recipe, it’s the classic that remains the most popular. Drummond’s Lasagna recipe is a labor of love, clocking in with a two-hour total cooking time. 

5. Pasta Ai Quattro Formaggi

Simple, cheesy pasta. That’s what Drummond’s Pasta Ai Quattro Formaggi is. It’s a pasta dish that can be served in any season for practically any occasion. 

Drummond boils angel hair pasta and sautés mushrooms in a pan before combining everything together with a lot of cheese — four different kinds to be exact — and a splash of cream. A light sprinkling of parsley on top for garnish and Drummond’s Pasta Ai Quattro Formaggi is ready to serve.
