Sauces & Shapes

Pasta the Italian Way
by Oretta Zanini De Vita

Pasta is so universally popular in the United States that it can justifiably be called an American food.

This book makes the case for keeping it Italian with recipes for sauces and soups as cooked in Italian homes today.

There are authentic versions of such favorites as carbonara, bolognese, marinara, and Alfredo, as well as plenty of unusual but no less traditional sauces, based on roasts, ribs, rabbit, clams, eggplant, arugula, and mushrooms, to name but a few.

Anyone who cooks or eats pasta needs this book. The straightforward recipes are easy enough for the inexperienced, but even professional chefs will grasp the elegance of their simplicity.
