“Fads may come and go but the appeal of pasta has endured,” writes Giuliano, who admits to having withdrawal symptoms if forced to go several days without pasta. These 100 recipes qualify as ‘quick and easy’ but they’re full of interest too, from simple broths to fancier dishes such as Linguine with Asparagus and Lobster. Giuliano gives reliable advice on how to stock a pasta pantry and why it’s worth paying a bit more for artisanally produced pasta too.
One of America's (and Italy's) foremost pasta experts returns with a pasta cookbook that is sure to appeal to the many time-starved cooks who long for authentic, simple and healthy meals for their family. The book focuses on pasta meals that can be made in under 30 minutes. Now that the World's low-carb obsession is over, home cooks are once again looking to prepare well-balanced meals that include everyone's favourite food - pasta. Few of us, though, have the leisure to create a classic Bolognese meat sauce from scratch. For those who are as pressed for time as they are starved for a bowl of beautifully sauced pasta, Giuliano Hazan has created 100 scrumptious pasta dishes that can be put together in half an hour or less. Hazan's repertoire - hearty pasta soups, fresh-from-the-greenmarket vegetarian dishes and meat and seafood sauces that take their cue from the classics of Italian cuisine - will let you bring healthy, hunger-satisfying pasta back to your family's weeknight supper table. Included are recipes for last-minute dishes, as well as useful advice on stocking your pasta pantry, choosing cooking equipment and figuring out which pasta shape goes with which kind of sauce.
