Overview

In Noodles Express, Dana McCauley offers a collection of more than 80 fresh and exciting dishes born of her love affair with noodles. Her recipes feature vibrant and diverse flavors of various world cuisines, that only call for ingredients that are readily available in most American supermarkets.

All the recipes, including Stir-Fried Jewels over Chow Mein, Curried Orzo Salad, Pomegranate Cous Cous in Pitas, and Asparagus, Tarragon and Lemon Fettuccine are fast and easy. Forty-five of these recipes can be made in 15 minutes or less! And that's preparation and cooking time. This is quick, healthy cooking at its most delicious and ingenious.

McCauley includes information about the more unusual noodles, ramen, bucatini, soba and udon, as well as other ingredients - spices, condiments, vegetables, cheeses. Her lively text is anecdotal and concise, as quick recipes should be. The recipe collection is divided into three convenient sections: 15 Minutes, 30 Minutes and 45 Minutes. With a few readily available ingredients on hand, cooks can check the clock and produce a delicious, homemade meal in a snap. Noodles Express is for those on the run and these days that's just about everybody.

Editorial Reviews

Culinary Trends - Carole Gainesborough
The layout of the book makes a lot of sense ... the colors and graphics are downright appetizing.
Myrna Collins
For those who want a good and healthful meal on the table in jig time, Noodle Express has a lot to offer.

Don't have time? Think again. Most of the dishes take 15 minutes or less to prepare -- just slightly longer than popping the lid off a jar of sauce. What you really reap here are the basics of good cooking: fresh ingredients, innovatively combined. Pasta just happens to be the perfect palette for easy meals no matter how creative you get.
