Book Description

French chef and cooking teacher Eric Treuille and Italian food expert Anna Del Conte have joined forces for a Pasta cookbook that will change the way you eat. The emphasis is on widely available ingredients, fuss-free recipes and time-saving tips. Pasta is convenience food for busy people who want to live and eat well but don't have time to spend long hours in the kitchen. Forget junk food. Forget ready-made meals. Everything about Pasta has been tailored to meet the needs of today's time-pressed cooks. You select recipes according to what's in the cupboard or what's in season -- recipes are organized by ingredient. You can tell at a glance which recipe suits your schedule -- no-cook, quick-cook & slow-cook categorize recipes according to cooking time. Hectic lives mean home cooks need to plan ahead. With each recipe, think ahead tips tell you what can be done in advance, including storage and freezing times. Pasta proves that fast food doesn't have to be takeout when you have pasta in the pantry. With Eric and Anna's store-cupboard standbys on hand, quick-fix meals will never pose problems again! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Pasta Book
I love pasta and always like to use this book when I am creating something from scratch. I have found this book to be very helpful in teaching me about cooking pasta and all of the wonderful sauces that can go with it.

The first portion of the book is excellent because it explains how to choose pasta in terms of ingredients and size/shape for a good pairing to the selected sauce. It also goes into techniques like tossing and using the right amount of cooking time. The recipes were clearly written and accompanied by many full-color photographs of what the dishes looked like when done.

Overall I have had a lot of good results with the pesto, tomato, and meat recipes. My cream sauces have not turned out as well though which is why I gave this book a four instead of a five. Regardless, it IS excellent and I believe a sound investment if you are looking to add a solid pasta book to your cookbook collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I am an Italian-American and very picky about my Italian cookbooks. This one is excellent, we have made probably about 30 different recipes in it and only 2 have been clunkers. What I really love about it (besides all the gorgeous photos) is the alternative suggestions for sauces and pasta styles. I wish all my cookbooks looked like this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Pasta Cookbook!
Do you like pasta? Then buy this book! I was looking for a book by Anna Del Conte and decided to try this one. Boy, am I glad I did. It's the best cookbook I own. The authors give basic instructions on such things as making "perfectly cooked pasta every time," and there is an endless number of easy, delicious recipes that also tell you which pasta to use and what can be done in advance. The "at a glance" format makes it so easy to quickly navigate through this book. And there's so much more! You will treasure this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book
I'm a good cook, and love to make more complex meals, but this book has basic great recipes - - while some are more complex, this is the best pasta book I've seen that can point you to ingredients you likely already have in your pantry, and help you to whip up something wonderful. Haven't been disappointed in a recipe yet, and have bought this book for a few friends who are still in the beginner to intermediate stages of loving to cook, and they all love it. Bottom line is that the recipes are great.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Pasta Recipe Book
I love this book! I learned to cook pasta from my husband's Italian mother and grandmother and I thought I was doing well, but this book has refined and simplified my pasta dishes. The book is easy to read and easy to use with step-by-step directions. After making one of the tomato based sauces, my husband said it was the best he'd ever had! There are recipes for every type of pasta, too, using seafood (my favorite), herbs and oils, and cheese. Fresh pasta, store bought, how to cook it...whether you've been cooking pasta all your life or just learning how this book is perfect. The pictures alone make it worth while. I, also, purchased the author's Ultimate Bread book and love it as much as this one. ... Read more

Book Description

As a college student, Eric Hites learned just how far he could stretch a dollar by combining a package of ramen noodles with some odd ingredients out of his nearly bare kitchen cupboards and a little imagination. Living on a tight budget, Hites and his friends spent many nights of fun, laughter, and experimentation figuring out how they could concoct original, cheap yet tasty meals from the only food they could truly afford: ramen noodles.It later occurred to Hites that he should collect and compile the recipes he and his friends had had so much fun inventing. Everybody Loves Ramen is filled with 50 innovative recipes-from Stroganoff Ramen Style to Easy Cheezy Ramen to Elvis's Fav' Gravy Ramen-as well as "ramen factoids," funny stories, games, and puzzles all related to our favorite low-cost snack food.Everybody Loves Ramen will make the perfect gift for a high school graduate, college student, single friend living on a tight budget, or anyone who, like Hites, remembers the days when a package of ramen was haute cuisine. Told in a humorous style, Everybody Loves Ramen will be both a cookbook and a book of fun. ... Read more

Ignore the games. Ignore the cutsey stuff. Most especially ignore the "journal" parts. (I don't know about you, but I don't need to keep a diary of ramen moments!)

All this aside, please go ahead and buy this book. The recipes are simple and good.

Book Description

Here is the future in a bowl: over 100 slippery, slurpy recipes, from Cantonese Wonton and Noodle Soup to Malaysia's famous Curry Laksa, Korea's Chap Chae, and even Indian Sevian Keer Dessert Noodles. Look up the right noodle in the beautifully photographed noodle IDs, then choose an easy, healthy noodle recipe and discover the power and passion of the noodle.

This is no mere grab bag of meals; these are recipes with roots: recipes that reflect regions, religions, ways of life. Terry Durack has made noodle-slurping noises from Hong Kong to Hunan, from Bangkok to Beijing, from Seoul to Singapore, and from Taipei to Tokyo in his search for the best noodle dishes on the planet.

These are noodles that feed the soul as well as the body; in addition to delicious recipes, Durack's fables delve into the world of the noodle, crossing bridges into the past, finding love at the end of a pair of chopsticks, and peace at the end of a long life. Such is the power of the noodle, the world's most nurturing food. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Kit & Caboodle "noodle"
This is the most enjoyable cookbook/informative guide to what some might think as the lowly noodle. Nevermore, Terry Durack has presented the who,what, where, when and why of 20 types of Asian noodles, with recipes from 13 countries. With color photos of each type and over 100 mouth watering recipes from soup/salad/main dish and deserts. There is an opportunity for the reader to become immersed enough to become an expert quickly.
The uniqueness lies in the love of the author who shares stories and history along the way.

This is sure to become a family treasure. Buy one to keep and one or more for gifts.

Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Excellent Excellent
It is true. This book is fantastic. I have cooked 3 dishes from this book so far, and they have all been very good. One was out of this world. Well done Terry Durack. You can't go wrong with this book if you want to cook quick authentic noodle dishes.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a must-have reference for any Asiaphile.
Terry Durack has written the penultimate reference book for all serious noodle-heads, or wannabes. If you've ever wandered the aisles of an Asian market, enchanted yet baffled by fresh, dried, yellow, green, white, thin, fat and medium noodles...get this book. Noodles are ID'd with photos, then identified in 3 or 4 languages, how-to-cook, how to serve and recipes follow. Fabulous recipes and, as a bonus, you'll be educated AND entertained by Durack's wicked sense of humor. No cook should be without this one!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than airfare
Excellent presentation that demystifies the process with simple recipes using easy-to-find ingredients. Yes, you CAN recreate the tastes you experienced in that noddle tent in Fukuoka!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book!
Beautifully photographed, lovingly and humorously written, 'Noodle' is simply superb. First readers are introduced to the various noodles of the world in the Noodle ID section. Then readers are treated to truly wonderful Asian recipes, country by country. (I do hope that the author writes a follow-up focusing on European and American culinary uses of the noodle.)A great book that honors a great, comforting food. Thanks, Terry Durack! ... Read more

Macaroni and cheese is the ultimate, all-American comfort food. Most Americans, especially children, are familiar with the version that comes out of the blue cardboard box, but acclaimed cookbook author Joan Schwartz has something to say about that in her collection Macaroni & Cheese. Schwartz has compiled over 50 original and inventive recipes from many well-known chefs and restaurants. Most of the recipes start off with a basic béchamel sauce (milk whisked into a roux) and add various domestic and foreign cheeses to the hot mixture, but some find room for more exotic ingredients, like truffles, duck prosciutto, oysters, sausage, and codfish. In addition, there's a glossary of almost 40 milk and goat cheese varieties that appear within the recipes. After sampling some of the more unusual recipes with such fascinating and complementary flavors, it will be time to put your standard assumptions about mac and cheese to rest, and put the blue box at the back of the pantry shelf. --Teresa Simanton ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Mac & Cheese!?!? Not in the 'Blue Box' Anymore!!
Is there any food dish that is more American than Macaroni and Cheese? Many of us, myself included, grew up with the 'blue box' and as our tastes developed, so did our disdain for this dish. I tended to equate 'Mac & Cheese' with that meat product that comes in the blue can.

But Joan Schwartz has exploded the low-brow image of America's comfort food. This book is incredible! There are so many varieties of this dish from the 'classic' dishes to international flavors to what Ms. Schwartz calls 'Mac and Cheese Today'. And don't think that the cheese is that orange stuff. Swiss, Fontina, Mascarpone, Feta and Mozzarella are just a few of the varieties that you will use in your recipes. And just when you thought that the cheeses were a stretch, recipes with lobster, prosciutto, artichoke hearts, portabello and crimini mushrooms and chiles and chipotle peppers to mention a few, will delight your tastes.

I'll admit that I bought this book with a great deal of skepticism. A few bites of the 'Chunks of Lobster Swimming in Cheesy Macaroni' dispelled my reservations. Other favorites include 'Farfalle with Fontina, Tasso Ham and Baby Spinach' and Mac and Smoked Cheddar with Ham and Chipotles'. Imagine the look on guests' faces when you announce that you are serving them Mac and Cheese and their surprise when you serve a dish approaching haute cuisine.

Let's admit it...we liked the 'blue box' growing up and most of us are ashamed to reveal our love of this American staple. Now we can proudly bring this long demeaned dish back to the table and rekindle our fondness for it. Buy the book....it's a keeper!

5-0 out of 5 stars A mac and cheese lover's must-have!
Clearly written, with easy to follow instructions, and guide to ingredients, including definitions and sources. I love the 50's style art and kitchy-ness of this wonderful comfort food book. The recipes go from simple and basic to complex and gourmet. Even my husband loved this book so much, he followed a recipe and made a decent meal from scratch for the first time in his life.

I plan to attempt most of the recipes in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved this Book
The recipe for greek mac n' cheese is one of my favorite recipes of all time. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent reference for mac and cheese lovers!
i got this book last fall, and although i have only had time for one recipe so far, that one recipe was absolutely the best macaroni and cheese i have ever had. the recipes are unique and definitely interesting - not your average box of kraft!

i absolutely recommend this book for any mac and cheese lovers~ even if you think you dont like to cook. it's wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars YUMMY AND UNIQUE!
Macaroni and cheese - kids like it, it's affordable, quick, simple to prepare and easy to digest. However, this is not your typical macaroni and cheese in a famous brand name box that you can prepare in less time than it takes to iron you socks! I liked this book particularly because it had so many variations and quite honestly, some I had never thought of and others that did not sound too appealing on the surface but turned out to be down-right delicious! There is a version found here with lobster that will pass for a gourmet meal! The choices are endless and the cost of preparing these recipes can be as extravagant or as modest as the ingredients you choose to add. If you are one who does not care for that "little blue box," do not give up on the macaroni and cheese idea yet, as least not until you have tried some of the recipes found in Schwartz's book. You can tickle your taste buds with a different delight each week of the year! ... Read more

Keep the right pastas in your pantry, along with the other ingredients recommended by Joie Warner, plus a few items in the fridge, and you can always enjoy a heaping plate of pasta tossed with any of a variety of zesty sauces simply by boiling water to cook the pasta while you combine the ingredients for the topping. This is the promise Warner proves to perfection in 75 high-flavor ways. For example, she adds chopped tomatoes to a homemade Caesar salad dressing tossed with bow ties and tops linguine with Spicy Tomato Salsa.

For sauces using meat, poultry, or seafood, she sometimes "cheats" a bit: in Tomato Sauce with Clams, you warm the sauce by placing it in a bowl set over the steaming pasta pot. And for Blue Cheese and Broccoli Sauce, you do cook the broccoli--by tossing it into the pot along with the pasta, but this is so efficient, who cares?

Color photos, taken by Warner's husband, are so sunlit that the food on every page looks like a cheerful feast. --Dana Jacobi ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No-Cook Pasta Sauces
Best book of recipes I've found for truly good and nourishing meals that can be prepared in a jiffy. If you are vegetarian, it's a plus, there are many recipes that do not contain any meat, some using fish but mosly cheese and vegetables. Meat can be added to many of the recipes but they are excellent as they are. I have had the book for a long time but wanted it for my college-age grandson.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good if you KNOW you'll be pressed for time
I like this book for those nights when I know ahead of time I'm going to be crunched for time. I'm the kind of person who plans a week of meals at a time before grocery shopping, with an eye on what nights will be busy vs. when I'll have oodles of time. I also keep a pretty extensive pantry on hand. I think if those 2 things weren't true, this book would lose alot of its usefulness. But with the right ingredients around, there are some good quick meals in here.

A few things to be aware of:
- These recipes are LOADED with butter, oil, and fatty cheeses, typically half a stick of butter, 1/2 a cup of cheese to serve 4.
- There is a little bit of prep required before you boil the water, but it's light, like chopping a garlic clove or grating some cheese.
- Most of these recipes uses strong tasting ingredients, like raw chopped garlic, crushed red pepper, and basil. If you don't like these ingredients, you might not like a lot of these recipes.

So, with those caveats, I would recommend this book. I especially like the sauce made from riccotta cheese, bottled red peppers, basil, garlic and parmesan cheese. I typically serve these with boiled broccoli and quick frozen garlic bread, and dinner is ready in like 20 minutes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly A Winning Formula
Better Homes and Gardens really hit on a winning formula with the "Fresh & Simple" series. When I saw this one, I picked it up and was back home before I even thought to open it. Having owned their "Quick-Simmering Soups" title for a few years, I knew this one would have the same wonderful photographs, the same restful layout using multi-coloured fonts, the same excellent index and, most importantly, the same sort of inspired simple recipes.

Leafing through it for this review, I start to salivate like a Pavlovian dog. I'm going to be doing much gushing here so I should mention at the outset the one real flaw: every recipe has an estimated time to completion (rarely more than 30 minutes), and I find almost all hilariously optimistic. Oh, perhaps if someone had already done the mise en place for me...

Unlike the "Soups" title, this book has a few near-duds in it. Most of the duds are adaptations of popular recipes that just suffer by comparison. The Vegetable Minestrone struck me as not just light but also thin, a pale imitation of one of the world's great soups. The Indian Chicken soup is not something that I would serve to an Indian, but on the other hand, I would serve the Curried Ham & Pasta salad, though I would hope I wasn't asked for the recipe, because it achieves its wonderful result by cheating audaciously.

Actually, "Cheating Audaciously" would be a good alternate title for the book. Most of the cheating works just fine, but I take exception to a couple of practices. An otherwise wonderful-looking Teriyaki Chicken Noodle salad actually uses the little envelope of MSG-loaded "flavouring" that ramen noodles come with. When I open a package of ramen noodles, the first thing I do is throw away that envelope. Let's get the rest of the flaws out of the way so we can move on to more pleasant things. It's just a matter of personal taste, but I found the pairing of salmon with strawberries to be odd in the extreme. Finally, the Spaghetti alla Carbonara and the Thai Pork & Vegetable Curry both have the "suffering by comparison" problem.

So, why does it still get five stars, when I have found fault with six of the recipes? Easy, because that leaves exactly 60 recipes that I find no fault with at all! I've only had this book for a few months, so I've only made about twenty of the recipes, but the other forty are on my to-do list, and they are all recipes that I would happily make for the first time with guests arriving. Standouts? To quote the Mediterranean Mostaccioli recipe: "The mix of chunky vegetables, fresh basil, feta cheese and ground lamb is country cooking at its simple best." The Tuna & Pasta Alfredo, while not one of my personal favourites, is an astonishingly easy way to get broccoli into small children. That recipe is also one of the few that I am able to make within the 25 minute time estimate. There is a wonderful recipe for asparagus with pasta in a light cream-cheese sauce, but my two favourites are both soups. The Crab & Pasta Gazpacho is another 25 minute recipe with guaranteed-wonderful results, and finally, I completely agree with the blurb for the Spring Green Pasta Soup: "Thin strips of cooked egg, exquisite spring vegetables, and wispy threads of angel-hair pasta compose a delicate soup with the airy lightness of a heavenly omelet."

There go those saliva glands again... ... Read more

I've been using this book since it was first published over 10 years ago. It has many excellent pasta recipes, many that are now particular favorites in our family, such as 'Tuna with White Beans' and 'Spicy Cheddar with Bacon'. The recipes are simple, fast and tasty. Well worth purchasing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Misleading Title, and not the best Italian cookbook...
...but that's only because the best Italian cookbook is Diane Seed's "Top 100 Italian Dishes."

There is nothing to dislike about this book! The misleading title complaint is only because this isn't just a book of pasta sauces, unless you consider things like Fusilli con Polpettine (Fusilli with meatballs) or Penne alla Alberoni (baked penne with shrimp and mushrooms) to be just a sauce.

By the way, the meatballs and the baked penne are two of my top 10 favourite recipes -- I perfected the meatball recipe, and I'm forever messing around with the penne, using scallops instead of shrimp, adding sake, feta cheese, green and waxed beans (but steam or zap those first, I discovered). It is such a foolproof recipe that it is possible to experiment like that and still know that dinner will be ready in 30 minutes, and that your guests will love it and demand the recipe.

Warning: This is NOT a Westernized cookbook, it is an unapologetically Italian cookbook with extremely authentic recipes. There is very little meat in most of these recipes, and pairings of things that would rarely be thought of outside of Italy, like a main dish composed entirely of pasta, chickpeas, and celery.

However, if you are prepared to be adventurous, and would like a source of wonderful meals that take less than 30 minutes to prepare, then this is the book for you. Come home exhausted, put a big pot of water on, sit down and relax until it boils, then create Linguine alle Olive in ten minutes flat. Linguine, garlic, black olives, olive oil, parsley salt, parmesan on the side, is all. You can dramatically change the recipe just by choosing what kind of black olives, from regular mild canned olives to intense oily kalamatas (I recommend the latter).

This book is completely filled with recipes like that. I much prefer photographs of finished dishes in cookbooks, but the fanciful illustrations here (by Robert Budwig) turn the book into a work of art.

Not all of the recipes are quickies, but the slower ones are where Ms. Seed does most of her teaching. You literally have NO idea what Spaghetti Bolognese is until you have spent a couple of hours making her version (only a half hour of that time requires your presence in the kitchen).

I've had this book for several years, so it is now dog-eared and much scribbled upon. I must have made at least thirty of the recipes, with only one dud, and that just because my palate just couldn't encompass the idea of having lemon as the overriding flavour in a main dish.

In summary: a wonderful cookbook, mostly full of very simple recipes that call for little time and few (but excellent) ingredients, coupled with a few time-consuming spectacular creations for special occasions.

Now, do yourself a favour and check out the BEST Italian cookbook...

5-0 out of 5 stars Grabbed off the shelf more than any of my other cookbooks
Ok, you are home from work and want dinner in 45 minutes or less; so it's spaghetti or pasta, of course. But if you don't want to open yet another jar of tomato sauce, you can grab this cookbook instead. That's what I do. I look in the fridge and take inventory of the vegetables, and then open the book and see what I can make. We end up eating a lot more healthy veggies and low-fat sauces because we use this book. I got it as a gift and I have to say, it's just about the most-used book in the kitchen.

It happens to make a very nice present in a basket with some boxes of fancy pasta, a few decorative vegetables and a couple of nice, woven towels in an Italian theme. And a bottle of red wine, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY perfect
So many authentic recipes...Most SO SIMPLE. The key is to use the best ingredients. I make a pasta dish from this book at least once a week. It is my most used cookbook!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic cookbook that saved my dinner many times!
I am a college student who enjoys cooking. My mom had this cookbook around when I was a child and I remember loving to look at the pictures because they were so beautiful. The illustrations are stunning and really fun to look at while you cook. :o)

I must say that recently when I came home for Winter Break, I started cooking for my family on Thursday evening. I didn't really want to make just plain old pasta and tomato sauce, so I dug through her cookbooks and this one jumped out at me. I found a great recipe for baked pasta with a parmesean and motzerella sauce and baked. My family went crazy for it.

This cookbook is absolutly wonderful for making some simple dishes. It has a wide variety of options. My only COMPLAINT is that it doesn't have US measurments, but, for someone who is math challenged like me, it was easy to figure out how much to use. :o)

Buy this book if you want to have some fantastic Itallian dinners and not have them take all day to prepare!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best cookbook ever...
Although the recipes in this book are relatively straightforward, they just don't produce the most flavorful sauces. I have tried quite a few of the recipes and none of them has really produced a sauce I was thrilled with. I have tried recipes for the same sauces out of other cookbooks (especially Marcella Hazen's Classic Italian Cooking) and invariably liked the results better. I really wouldn't recommend this one. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A true mixed bag of good, great and no way....
I have had this book for years. Its publication date is 1988. I have had it at least 10 years, long before a low carb life style was thought to be a good thing. When I was going through all my cook books the other day I came accross this book of generally very easy and some surprizingly elegant pasta recipes some that can be made quickly for company.

First the good:

With a fair number of these recipes you can produce a hearty comfort-type entree with with mostly pantry type ingredients. Who would have thought that spaghetti with parsley butter (spaghetti, butter, garlic, parsley) can make a satisfying and elegant entree? Well I didnt. But it does. And it makes and even better first course, lunch or side dish. The same goes for Spaghetti with walnuts and parmesan (spaghetti, olive oil, garlic, walnuts, parmesan, parlsey...and add blue cheese to this one if you like). throughout this book are simple put-toghether dishes like this that you can add to your usual stable of week night dinners for variety. Other examples of these simple recipes are spaghetti with lemon butter and peas, elbows with butter, parmesan and peas, and fetticcini with tuna and peas.

On the more exotic side are a rabbit sauce for your pasta, a cavier and pasta concoction and a section an asian noodles. Quite a few of all of the dishes are on the rich (read calorie laden) side... One chapter with no cook sauces is a bit lighter. The dessert section is very sweet and very rich.
I think a lot of these recipes could be *lightened up* with alternate products... fat free half and half instead of cream, fat free milk instead of milk, egg substitute instead of eggs..low fat cheeses, etc.

On the plus side..there are many many recipes to choose from, many with things you already have at home. On the minus side, without reworking some of these...its a cholestol nightmare (no, not all of them...but a good number) It fairly easy to read. A nice font, easy directions. Suggestions to change the basic recipes... Alternate ingredient choices. very nice. Thankfully no screaming elbow macaroni cartoons running from smiling pots of boiling water.

A minus here I need to note...having had the book for so long...Its not exactly a spiral, more like a loose leaf that holds punched pages...but some of the holes have ripped like they would in your school binder. Or they just dont stay where they should any more. Essentially i have one ring holding in all the pages now. Not a good thing for all the pages. In a few years, I think I will just have pages and that will be just a big mess.

Times have changed and tastes have changed. There is an appreciation for a lighter style of cooking. Its hard to say if I would buy this when the last ring goes and pasta recipes fall all over my kitchen. I can't say that this hasnt been helpful, because any cookbook that helps me make a dinner out of what i already have, is a help. I think I will only know what I will do when the time comes because this truly was a mixed bag.

I can see this being a good book for someone who does alot of pantry cooking. Someone just starting out because the recipes are very simple (well alot of them) and most take a minimum of ingredients and prep. Or someone interested in a good volume of only pasta dishes.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Recipe for Everyone
I picked up my copy in 1990 when I was in college and haven't stopped using it. As a college student my favorite dish was the fresh tomato, basil and ricotta sauce on ziti. Yum! When I was a nanny for a California family with California taste, recipes like the spaghetti with blue cheese and walnuts saved my fanny. And now that I'm married and cook for my extended family, one of my favorite potluck dishes is the "light and easy" Salad of Penne and Chicken with Spinach and Buttermilk Dressing. My family loves it too.

I love the spiral binding and hard cover that lay flat. The different chapters ("Asian Connection," "No-Cook Sauces") etc. make for good browsing. And I like that many additions are offered too.

Lots of times I pull out a variety of things from my fridge and cupboard and then go to this cookbook to figure out what to make. For example, if I had leftover spaghetti, some eggs, and a handful of veggies to chop up, I could bang out a delicious spaghetti frittata that I know my family would love.

This cookbook has been a staple in my kitchen for 11 years and has held up wonderfully!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very USEFUL Cookbook
This cookbook is one of the most often used of my collection of 100+. The "Emergency Dinners" chapter is wonderful! It includes a list of 16 staples, regular stuff, like olive oil and onions and bacon. These staples are combined in various ways to make the 16 recipes in the chapter, all of them delicious and very quickly prepared, great for unexpected weeknight dinner guests. Many of the recipes in the "Italian Classics" chapter are as easy and quick to prepare as the emergency dinners, and are as good as versions I've had in Italian restaurants. In fact, every chapter includes recipes that are easy to prepare, although some require longer cooking times. The "American Classics" and "Elbows" chapters include a bunch of variations on macaroni and cheese, and may be helpful in getting kids to eat more vegetables, and some unfamiliar ingredients.

4-0 out of 5 stars Contains some of our favorite pasta recipes!
Organized by size and shape, this book is always in our kitchen, with probably 4-5 of our all-time favorites which we cook over and over and over. Valuable one to give, which is how we got ours.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best cookbooks I have
I am a dedicated home cook and I also work as a personal cook for a private client. I rely on this book again and again for unique and delicious pasta recipes. I have not made anything from this book that has been a dud, in fact, I often don't even bother to taste for seasoning adjustment--it's that precise and on-key. Like the reviewer below, I haven't gotten anywhere near to exhausting the possibilities, and every time I open the book I have a hard time deciding which direction to go in because they all look so good!

And just to clarify, when I say "unique" recipes, I don't mean things that require you to make a trip to a specialty market, like burdock, or fava beans. At random, here are five recipe titles to give you an idea: Lamb Stew with Herbed Elbows; Seafood Lasagne; Rigatoni with Cauliflower and Garlic-Anchovy Oil; Creamy Tuna Sauce with Capers and Lemon; and Spinach-Stuffed Manicotti with Red Pepper Bechamel Sauce. Oh, and let's not forget dessert! How about Lemon-Scented Pastina Souffle? Or Couscous, Dried Fruit and Honey Pudding?

If you turn to pasta as part of your cooking repetoire, you must have this cookbook on your shelf. There, don't I make decision making easy? ... Read more

The Mac and Cheese recipe is a huge hit with everyone that has partaken. Great recipes for dinner parties, everyone from people with discriminating tastes to the average Joe will enjoy the meal. I'm just sad I don't entertain more and find an excuse to use the book more often! Maybe that should be my New Year's Resolution....

One of my most trusted cookbooks, I have given as a gift as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Cookbooks
Make the Yellow Bell Peppers in Vinegar, Sugar and Oregano. I have made this dish many times to take to parties, and there hasn't been a single occasion on which I haven't been asked for the recipe. People GORGE themselves on this stuff. They love it. Another consistent winner is the White Bean, Red Onion, Tomato and Oregano Salad; it makes a terrific side dish with a broiled flank steak - the entire dinner can be ready in 15 minutes. The Torta Rustica takes some effort, but it really is a showstopper. More importantly, the authors' concept of simple foods prepared with top-quality ingredients makes a wonderful philosophy. Their emphasis on olive oil yields a cookbook full of delicious recipes low in cholesterol, and tons of fresh vegetables. Healthy, sophisticated and delectable. These are ideal recipes to take with you to a picnic or party, since they can be served cold or at room temperature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Delicious, imaginative, easy-to-prepare recipes
This is the first cookbook review I've submitted. After preparing yet another scrumptious dish from this amazing collection of recipes, I was moved to share my delight with other potential readers. Everyone who has tasted the recipes I've made has praised them highly. Their simplicity belies their good taste. The two desserts I've made were huge hits - poaced peaches with amareti cookies and prunes in port over ice cream - yum! The grilled green or golden zucchini is amazing!

I'm lucky to have the ability to read a recipe and imagine it accurately in my mind. I am confident that every recipe I've savored with my eyes will live up to its promise on my taste buds. I've not been disappointed yet!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great recipes for casual entertaining
Contains recipes for casual entertaining which can be made ahead of time and served at room temperature. Good ideas for combining ingredients and for menus.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must during the scorching heat of the Summer.
I received Cucina Fresca as a wedding present in 1987 and have been cooking great and relatively easy lunches and dinners from this book for 12 Summers. I was recently sailing in the Mediteranean and wanted to give the Australian cook on the 80 ft Maxi a copy of this cook book in gratitude for the lovely food she prepared on board. I am very dissapointed that it is no long in print.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great food you can cook ahead of time and everyone loves
Do you work? Do you like to serve good meals? Do you wonder how on earth you can combine those two facts? Here's the answer -- CUCINA FRESCA ("fresh cooking") presents a couple of hundred terrific and relatively simple, light, Italian-style recipes that you can cook ahead of time and then just take out of the refrigerator when you get home from the office and serve at room temperature to raves from family and friends. I have made "Rosemary Chicken" so many times it's incredible, but people always ask for more. A great dish to take to a sick friend, too. BOOO to the publisher for letting this wonderful cookbook go out of stock. Time to reprint! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I was disappointed when I recieved this book. It does contain a large amount of recipes and variations. However it seems more suited to a generation that knew nothing of nutrition and generally healthy eating. While I understand that not everything is 'cooking light' there seems to be zero consideration or mention of these modern day issues and concerns - no healthy alternatives seem to exist.

My advice is to keep shopping there are a lot of good alternatives available that cover all aspects of the sauce subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mamma Mia .... atts a goooood book ...
If you can't find a sauce in this book that you will love then, my friend, you must want to have sauces made with crushed flies!

The book is divided into 26 chapters based on the main ingredient for the sauces that you may be lloking for. ie. sauces made from buttur/olive oil; cream and meat or seafood;cream;;nutmeats;tomatoes;tomatoes and meat;uncooked cheese ;vegetrables ... ecte ect

Each of the recepies is clear cut SUPER FAST in most cases ( except the simmering for some sauces) and, MOST IMPORTANT, the author gives us a full list of the ingredient options.

I just made the four cheese sauce and if you can't find the Fontina, Bel Paeze or Gorgonzola cheese the recipie calls for he gives us a list of other cheeses to replace the ones asked for in the ITALIAN recepie. WOW .... you know there are very very few cookbooks with that kind of simple foresight...

I think the book must weigh in at over 500 pages ... has NO pictures (a disadvantage in my book) is all written in large capital lettesr and leaves a section for you to write when you tried the recepie and if you loved it or hated it ...

If you like pasta dishes this book is a MUST buy .........

5-0 out of 5 stars A sauce for every occasion and then some.......
I have given this cookbook as a gift over and over since the sauces in this book are delicious and most are simple to make. Whenever I have some extra ingrediants I don't want to go to waste, I can always find a sauce to use them in and I have never been disappointed! It is "the greatest collection of pasta sauces ever in one book."

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book...
This book is very good for the new cook or the old pro. I got it as a wedding gift but I didn't cook at the time. As I got used to the idea of being in a kitchen this book really helped me out a lot. I know use it a lot and find myself wanting to give it to all new cooks!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic- essential for every cook
In an age filled with pasta lovers this book is the essential companion to your supermarkets pasta isle! with an outstanding collection of sauces there is no way that you will ever eat the same dish twice. Perhaps one of the best features is the check list which allows you the oppurtunity to choose for yourself wether or not your family liked it. A true godsend to pasta!

The beginning to the experienced pasta maker will benefit from this book. Large, clearly printed, well outlined and containing lots of photos of the recipes, this book also has the "cooking school" format that has step by step photos. A entire chapter is devoted to dried pasta with photos of the different shapes. Never wonder what casereccie, banane, or grimigna are again! With this book, you will know! Imaginative use of fresh herbs pressed in sheets of pasta, cuisines from Italian to the Orient (and points in between), baked, stuffed, desserts, this book has enough ideas and recipes to get you started and keep you busy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential for pasta lovers
This is an absolutely essential book for anyone who loves pasta. It is packed with wonderful color photos. The recipes are delicious. Some are quite involved and require exotic ingredients.

Being so much more than acookbook, it starts out with a brief history of pasta. It then discussesgrain in detail. Pictures of each flour type & an illustration of awheat grain are included here. There are also pictures all the of pastatools.

Next, dry pasta is covered. There are great photos of over 125different pastas, including Asian noodles. It also demonstrates step bystep how to make, & shape fresh pasta doughs from scratch.

I lovedthe inclusion of colored, flavored pastas. The sweet pastas includingchocolate noodles are divine. Other great recipes focused on pasta sauces,soups, dumplings, gnocchi, baked pastas and stuffed dishes. ... Read more
