With COVID-19 impacting all aspects of life, Easter celebrations are likely to look at least a little different this year—online masses and Skype sessions with far-flung family, for instance—but we know a lot of people will still be enjoying Easter baskets and traditional dinners. So we’re sharing ideas we hope will help bring happiness to you and yours. Here, an Easter basket that celebrates the glory of pasta.

Easter baskets aren’t only for the young, and needn’t only be filled with candy, regardless of the age of the recipient. Ascribing a theme is a thoughtful way to put together an Easter basket, or for any occasion worth celebrating. We’ve covered healthy alternatives, as well as those built around chocolate and wine, and now up? Pasta.

We all know and love one: someone who’d rather have another serving of savory than dessert. Someone who can eat pasta every day of the week, and even every meal of the day. Someone who can deliver a monologue about the finer points of various shapes and their soulmate sauces. Someone whose face would surely light up on Easter or any other day of the year when presented with the following “basket” of pasta-themed treats:

Rustic White Farmhouse Colander, $31.50 on Etsy

You could just get a traditional basket and go to town with a glue gun and some hardcore macaroni art if you have the time. Or, you can get creative with the definition of “basket.” Here, a colander is on-theme and practical, and its rustic aesthetic can allow your pasta lover to dream of a sun-dappled, Tuscan farmhouse kitchen.Buy Now

The Pasta Shoppe

You could probably also just fill up a basket with Annie’s Bunny Pasta and call it a day for your thematic Easter basket. I mean, that would work for me. But if you’re up for trying a little harder, these bunny-shaped noods from The Pasta Shoppe also have the pastel palette working for them. For the exceptionally enthusiastic (or for those who require chocolate on Easter), try this recipe from Food52 for Chocolate Pasta with Mushrooms and Rosemary.Buy Now
