Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Della Croce pays tribute to dried pasta, with 28 classic pasta dishes from Italy. She gives helpful and instructive information describing the differences between dried and fresh pasta, and the best ways to cook and sauce each variety. Many of these recipes are well-suited to people who are health-conscious and time-short but still want delicious meals with fresh, wholesome ingredients. The Spaghetti with Tuna (white version) is awesome. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
