Joy Davies is a well-traveled and experienced food writer and winner of the Glenfiddich Award for work she did for Harpers & Queen. In 1997, she spent a year exploring the markets and kitchens of the wilder parts of Asia and Central America, including China, Tibet, Sulawesi, and the Amazon basin. This inspired the 50 noodle and pasta recipes in her book. Each is beautifully illustrated with a color photograph, and 10 dishes are shown in step-by-step photographs. Recipes from Southeast Asia--the noodle capital of the world--include Vietnamese Rice Noodle Soup and the spectacular Thai crispy noodle dish Mee Krob. Davies also includes dishes from North America, Europe, and the Middle East. Those she chooses from Australia, such as Rice Noodles with Seared Oysters, are strongly influenced by the East. This is a truly inspirational book with glorious photographs by Simon Wheeler. Companion books are Rice: From Risotto to Sushi and Potatoes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This series turned me into someone who likes to cook!
The "Great Taste, Low Fat" series is fabulous -- this book as well as the two others I've purchased and dog-eared. The pasta dishes are excellent. The recipes are loaded with yummy, healthy, fresh ingredients. But the recipes are also very practical -- e.g., when a recipe calls for beans, it specifies the canned variety. Many recipes start with similar steps so that over time I've gotten better at cooking them. I'm really pleased with the series and plan to buy more.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is a "must-have" in any kitchen!
I've bought many recipe books that just sit on the shelf, but this one I use! It has wonderful recipes with easy-to-find ingredients. I love the way it sits on the counter for quick reference while you are preparing your meal. And all pages are heavily coated cardboard so you can wipe them clean if they get splashed. I'm learning to cook vegetarian and there are many great meatless recipes too. It has all the basic pasta recipes and many more - I wouldn't be without it! Highly recommend! I'm going to order the rest in the fanfare series. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for your cookbook shelf
I bought this book many years ago and have used it so much that some pages are marked with sauce and personal notes that I have tailored to my family's taste buds. This cookbook deserves 5 stars and if you can find it, buy it!!

4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent cookbook!
If you're not worried about low-fat pasta sauce recipes, and want to make some delicious, beautiful pasta dishes, this book is perfect. I have tried more than half of the sauces and every single one has met praise. Great pesto, chicken and artichoke pasta and some of the tried and true cream and marinara sauces. Fabulous for company. I have had to buy many copies of this book to give to friends because I got tired of writing out recipes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars primo pasta recipes for a fanatic
Fletcher continually creates delicious recipes that are easy to do in all her cookbooks (e.g., Fresh from the Farmer's Market); this book is no exception. Cauliflower, eggplant, leeks, squash all get a turn here, so there's something for everybody. I've yet to create one of these recipes that wasn't met with huzzahs, so get this book and start cooking! Fantastic.

5-0 out of 5 stars my favorite cookbook
I've given this cookbook to just about everyone I know. It's fantastic. It's organized by type of vegetable, and so far I've loved every recipe I've tried. The recipe on the cover -- tomatoes with goat cheese and basil -- has become a standard quick recipe for me and some of my friends during the summer, when the tomatoes are good. The mushrooms and fried sage pasta is also particularly good. I happened to run into Janet Fletcher at a pasta shop in Berkeley, and I'm afraid I acted like a groupie, gushing about how I'd given this cookbook to all my friends. But she was very nice about it. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Pick what you Want, then Pick a Recipe!
This is a great twist on the typical pasta cookbook. It is arranged by vegetable so you choose what you want and then look for a recipie and you will most likely find one you want. The Fettuccine with Artichokes, Prosciutto and Cream has become one of my favorite recapies to make cause it is so yummy and so easy! All recipes from this book have come out great so far. Great pictures too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best simple pasta recipes I've found
The recipes in this book are artful and rely on fresh ingredients without being overly complex. My guests consistently love the dishes and the author makes it easy to stock the basics for most of the recipes. Great for veggie lovers too -- mostly meatless dishes. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most used cookbook I own.

67. Pasta Dinners 1, 2, 3 : 125,000 Possible Combinations for Dinner Tonight (The 1, 2, 3 Dinners)

The 1, 2, 3 Dinner series publishes the consummate page-flipping books for those who like to browse cookbooks until they see something inviting to make for dinner tonight. It is also a series for the menu-impaired--those who decide to make Lasagna Spirals, but then have no idea what to include alongside.

The long, narrow "pages" of 1, 2, 3 Pasta Dinners have been cut into three recipe-card-size sections with a different recipe on each card. Reference numbers are on the cards rather than the full sheets; this way you can view pages 3, 62, and 129 simultaneously. The top recipe (Marinated Goat Cheese, Peppers, and Olives) is for a first course or appetizer; the middle recipe (Vermicelli with Scallops and Orange Butter) is the pasta course; and the final recipe (French Upside-Down Apple Tart) features breads or dessert.

According to the publisher, this method allows for 125,000 possible menu combinations. If you don't like the idea of marinated goat cheese, for example, but the vermicelli is exactly what you want, flip through the top third of the book until you land on something more suitable, Spinach Soup (page 37), say, or Marinated Vegetables (page 18). The backside of each recipe card lists additional food matches and corresponding page numbers. All recipes are for four to six servings. --Brenda Pittsley ... Read more

Cooking for the cooking impaired!All the recipes are simple and easy, no difficult techniques or sophisticated equipment needed.The ability to show all three recipes on the same page while you are cooking in the kitchen is a winner.Bright fresh flavors, beautiful easy presentations, and wonderful tastes make this a must have for the novice cook and for the intermediate level too for new ideas. ...

68. Joy of Cooking: All About Pasta & Noodles

When you hear the word "visionary," Irma Rombauer is probably not the first person to come to mind. But when Rombauer touted pasta as a "nutritious, inexpensive, and quick meal" in the original Joy of Cooking more than 60 years ago, little did she know what an intrinsic part of America's family menus it would become. This beautiful volume is a welcome reminder that with a little TLC, pasta for dinner can mean so much more than spaghetti and red sauce from a jar. The recipes are adapted from the latest Joy, but enhanced until they're almost unrecognizable, with gorgeous color photographs, tips and beautifully illustrated techniques, and a comprehensive introduction that covers everything from cooking pasta and choosing Italian cheeses to 27 different pasta shapes and the sauces to serve with them.

If you have the time to make it, the chapter on fresh pasta begins with a clear, well-written recipe for Fresh Egg Pasta and then offers variations such as Whole Wheat Pasta and Spinach Pasta. A lesson on rolling, cutting, and shaping follows. Novice cooks need not worry, as more tutorials pepper the pages, such as How to Peel, Seed, and Juice Tomatoes, How to Roast and Peel Peppers, and How to Make Tortellini and Cappelletti. There are also well-explained tips throughout the book, explanations of ingredients--such as capers, Italian and Greek olives, and prosciutto--and minilessons on subjects such as freezing filled pasta.

But what really sets this book apart are the myriad recipes for quick, nutritious, inexpensive, delicious meals. All our old favorites are included, such as Classic Italian American Lasagne, Tuna Noodle Casserole, and Bolognese Sauce, as are more adventurous dishes like Pastitsio, Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Goat Cheese Lasagna, and Penne with Vodka. A chapter on Asian noodles includes a little taste of everything, with recipes like Shrimp Pad Thai and Spicy Szechuan Noodles. But it wouldn't be Joy of Cooking without homey dishes like dumplings, so the last chapter covers them as well as variations on spaetzle and potato gnocchi. As always, it's the clear, easy-to-follow recipes that make Joy such a joy to use, and such a valuable addition to anyone's kitchen. --Leora Y. Bloom ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Vegetarianism Made Easy (and Delicious!)
This book proves that you need not sacrifice flavor, texture, nor variety, nor inconvenience yourself in the kitchen, to give up meat.Some of the recipies may be difficult for culinary novices such as myself, but like most other things, once you pick up the fundamentals, the rest comes much easier.There are also some very simple and delicious recipies included.Highly recommended for those who are considering giving up meat yet think that they would miss it too much.I bet you won't even notice it's gone!

5-0 out of 5 stars very cool book
We like to eat pasta and have really come to like the whole wheat and other pastas that are actually good for you.This book has been a great resource for us.The recipes are really really good, easy to prepare and have opened my eyes to much more than just the basic tomato sauce.There are recipes for bean and pasta soups, all sorts of pastas with different vegetables, a variety of pasta salads, and more.Really inspirational

5-0 out of 5 stars Knock your socks off dishes!Mouth watering every time.
This is the one cookbook I go back to over and over.Every single recipe I have tried has been absolutely delicious.Well worth reading the front section on selecting pastas, cheeses and olive oils.My favorites are:Pasta Primavera, Spaghetti with Pumpkin(which I have prepared and served atleast 20 times this year), Roasted zucchini half moons with bow tie pasta,& the lasagnas.I am now purchasing additional books as gifts to myfriends.You do not have to be vegetarian to love these dishes.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wealth of excellent recipes
In depth information about ingredients allow you to choose the very best for each recipe; preparations are simple but sophisticated with many innovative vegetable/cheese compositions resulting in great dishes with distinct flavour!

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensible
I have shelves full of cookbooks but find myself turning to "Pasta Verde" at least once or twice a week. The recipes are delicious, quick and easy to prepare, and generally use common ingredients. Several are a bit high in fat and heavy-handed with dairy products, but easy to modify (and still taste wonderful after doing so). A wide variety of vegetables are used throughout. Strict vegetarians beware: the soup section contains recipes for beef and chicken stock, but vegetable stock (recipe also included) can be used instead. ... Read more

For the past eight years, Carlean Johnson's Six Ingredients or Less cookbooks have maintained a premier position on my cook book shelf. I can say this categorically, I have never had one of these recipes go bad. They are simple, easy to use (I use them to teach young people how to cook), use simple-easy to obtain ingredients, and above all are delights to eat. No kitchen should be without them; whether it be a cook who is on the "haute cuisine" level or one that is on the "I burn water" level. I recommend them highly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Asian noodles with a California viewpoint
I am constantly asked for a good recipe for Chinese Chicken Salad. The one in this book is absolutely delicious and worth making for a dinner party on a hot night. The chicken is grilled with hoisin sauce and served on light somen noodles.

I also am a big fan of Soba, Japanese buckwheat noodles, but other than putting them in a vinegar-soy dip, I had no recipes to use them. This book has quite a few, including a Green Tea Soba Stir fry, which combines my favorite ingredients.

The best part of the book is the inclusion of recommended wines to serve. Chosing wine to go with Oriental or oriental-inspired foods isn't so easy. It's great to have a guide to use and the wines could also apply to other standard oriental fare. ... Read more

Book Description

It's 5:00 ... Do You Know Where Your Dinner Is?

In this third volume of the four-part series, Noel prides herself in pasta recipes that can be prepared when pressed for time.

Born without a domestic gene in her body, Brook Noel has been spotted securing saran wrap with sailor knots, baking a cherry pie without pitting the cherries and coloring unboiled Easter eggs. When challenged by a friend to create a one-stop-cookbook solution for today's manic moms and dads, Brook, much to her husband's dismay, accepted the challenge. (He had taken to eating large business lunches and opting out of dinner.)

A CEO, mom, wife, daughter, volunteer, author and speaker, Brook's time is at a premium. The recipes you'll find within this small volume are the few that survived Brook in the kitchen while also living up to the Rush Hour Cook Rules (see below). Take this simply cooking system and try it in your kitchen! Soon you will transform you chaotic rush hour into a smooth and sane dinnertime.

1. All ingredients may be pronounced through the phonetic use of the English language.
2. Each ingredient can be located in the market without engaging on a full scale scavenger hunt.
3. No list of ingredients shall be longer than the instructions.
4. Each recipe has to be durable enough to survive the Queen-of-Incapable Cooking (Brook Noel) and elicit a compliment.
5. The Rush Hour Cook's finicky child will eat it--or some portion of it. ... Read more

This is a great pasta cookbook with your shopping list done for you. I even put the cookbook in my purse and at my lunch hour at work I look thru it to see what I can make for a meal and stop at the store on the way home. It has saved me allot of time having the shopping list done.

"This is the small-is-beautiful cooking concept. I'm awed by real gourmet cooking, but I'm never going to be that kind of cook and neither will most people." ~Brook Noel

If you are wondering why Brook Noel wrote so many tiny books instead of a huge cookbook with all her recipes in one book, the answer is simple. You can throw these tiny books in your purse and do your shopping with the help of the personal shopper in the back of each book. If you don't have the time to write out shopping lists or plan meals, these books might save you a lot of time.

If you cook from a wide variety of cookbooks, you can add some easy-to-make recipes to your recipe repertoire. These are not gourmet recipes, they are fun family favorites.

You will find recipes for: Garlic Bread, Special Spaetzle, Spaghetti Pie, Chicken and Veggie Pasta, Chicken Tetrazzini, Strawberry Sundaes and Magnificent Macaroni.

Each tiny book has some cute features which include symbols for "really fast" recipes perfect pasta pointers and "mother-knows-best" wisdom.

If Brook can cook, you can too. Wait until you read some of her hilarious recollections of kitchen disasters.

4-0 out of 5 stars Convenient format for the hurried
The Rush Hour Cook series is a collection of small books that are designed to easily fit into a purse or briefcase without taking up much room. In the "Presto Pasta" book you can expect the usual categories of soups, sides and starters, main meals, and desserts. The soups, sides, and starters are specifically picked to be ones that are appropriate for a pasta meal. One of the requirements for a recipe to make it into the Rush Hour Cook series is that the ingredients must be easy to find in just about any grocery store. So if you plan on preparing something from the book you can drop it into your purse or carry it along and pick up the ingredients on the spot.

Various tips are also scattered throughout the book. At the end there are five days of suggested meals as an example of meal planning and the shopping list that would be needed to prepare all of these meals. These are practical, easy to prepare, and quick recipes. This is a great gift for the novice cook or the person who just wants to make a quick meal and get on to other things.

There's a child in all of us ... that certain someone who yearns for things that taste good and are quick to bring smiles to our faces and bellies. And that child ain't Julia. We have finally discovered a woman who understands the way most Americans eat: fast and faster. Brook Noel has penned a series of ultra-slim cookbook (think of them as gastronomic guides) that offer recipes, and serve up tasty tricks and tips. There's even a sprinkling of savory trivia --- who knew the pretzel was invented in 600 AD by a monk who crossed the dough to form hands in prayer? The meals in minutes (Noel insists "no list of ingredients shall be longer than the instructions") are easy to make. She proves that anyone can conquer kitchen chaos, win the battle of rush hour without rushing, and still come out smelling like a cinnamon bun.

I heard about this book on the radio and can see why this book has gotten so much press coverage. I love it! You can fit it in your purse and it includes complete grocery lists so you can grab all the groceries you need for a week quickly and easily. I bought the set of 4 and also bought a bunch to use as Chrsitmas presents and they received rave reviews! While the other reviewer thought it was too small I thought it was a relief from those huge cookbooks with tons of useless recipes. My family has loved everything I have made so far! ... Read more

Book Description

Creamy risotto, dotted with fresh spring peas or delicate shellfish, is a classic of the northern Italian table. This versatile dish never ceases to please -- combining the satisfying flavors of tender rice, fresh herbs, and seasonal ingredients with delicious results.

Warm up winter evenings with a rich, satisfying four-cheese risotto, or serve a light risotto with artichokes for an early summer supper.

Risotto recipes in the dessert chapter combine figs and almonds or chocolate and hazelnuts to complete this inspired collection.

Full-color photographs make it easy to decide which risotto to prepare, and photographic side notes highlight key ingredients and techniques throughout, making Risotto more than just a fine collection of recipes.

3-0 out of 5 stars No, not the best . . .
I?m a food person, I love pasta, and I often am short of time to do much cooking, so this book seemed like a natural for me: 80-odd pages of recipes designed to be put together in the time it takes to actually boil the pasta. The instructions include detailed instructions, good illustrations, and by-the-way comments on preparation of ingredients. The problem is, you have to maintain a significant stock of ingredients you?re unlikely to use otherwise (or I am, anyway), like capers, pine nuts, prosciutto, heavy cream, and Gorgonzola. Also, many of the ingredients, like asparagus and shrimp, are supposed to be fresh -- so how are you supposed to keep them handy? Finally, while there are some interesting recipes in this collection, some are downright wierd: I mean, fresh figs, cream, and vodka?

5-0 out of 5 stars The best little pasta book
This is absolutely the best pasta book I have ever found.I do a lot of cooking and like to experiment with different recipes.This book is invaluable whether you are an experienced cook or a beginner.There are wonderful photos of the finished dish as well as step by step photos.It also contains descriptions of the various types of pasta and sauces which pair well with each type.The instructions are clear and easy to understand and give reasons why you do things a certain way or why certain ingredients are used.This would make an excellent gift for a pasta lover or cook.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps not the quickest, but certainly some of the best!
Well, they generally take quite a few minutes more than the five that is promised, but they're also worth it.
These recipies are healthy and, better yet, very flavorful.The instructions are straightforward, and the pictures of the finished product are definitely motivating!
We're a busy, time-pressed and fairly fussy NYC couple who would much rather order takeout than boil water.But nevertheless, this book gets used quite a lot.We think that's saying something.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction.
In its almost 50 parts, all written by experienced cooks and cook book writers, HP Books' "The Book of ... Cooking" series takes you to the cuisines of various regions of the U.S. and around the world; all in easy to follow, well-explained recipes.

This installment, the Book of Antipasti, starts with a glossary of ingredients, and then presents recipe suggestions from vegetable antipasti and salads to breads and pastries. Special chapters are dedicated to fish and shellfish, meats, sausages, cheese and egg dishes. Classics such as breadsticks, bresaola, bruschetta al pomodoro, carpaccio, focaccia, frittata, marinated olives and mushrooms, tuna salad and walnut bread appear next to unique dishes such as arugula and pine nut salad, chicken and grape salad, marinated soft cheese, prosciutto with figs, and veal and spinach terrine.

From asparagus and egg salad to zucchini with garlic, this collection of recipes, while not all-encompassing, is a great introduction to the endless possibilities of starting a meal - and at a relative bargain price, to boot. Also recommended, particularly for fans of Italian cooking: This series' installments on pasta, light pasta sauces and pizzas and Italian breads. ... Read more
