Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This follow-up to Urvater's successful Monday-to-Friday Cookbook (LJ 9/15/91) is likely to be just as popular. This time around she offers close to 200 pasta recipes that take less than half an hour to prepare, along with lots of variations, ideas for jazzing up leftovers, and other tips for busy family cooks. Many recipes include suggestions for making them "Especially Good for Children" (or for adults, for company, or for dieters). Yes, yet another pasta cookbookbut the recipes are different and the format is very appealing. For most libraries.
