Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Joachim, author of the best-selling A Man, a Can, a Plan, offers a new book of easy recipes for main courses of all types (pastas, pizzas, and more), all based on pasta sauce. He chose four basic types of store-bought sauce-tomato, pesto, alfredo, and cheddar cheese-and he begins by rating the different brands of each type. What's odd is that although he likes some of the commercially available tomato sauces, he recommends making pesto sauce from scratch and says that prepared alfredo sauce pales in comparison to fresh," as do commercial cheddar cheese sauces; he provides recipes for making all three as well as for a variety of tomato sauces. All his other recipes, however, call for prepared sauces, but readers will probably find the tomato sauce-based recipes the most satisfying of the bunch if using a store-bought product. Nevertheless, with its catchy title and quick and simple recipes, this is recommended for most collections." -Library Journal Nov 15, 2006
