I bought an Imperia pasta maker to go with this book and it's the machine used in all the instructional photos, which was handy. Having never made pasta before, I was hoping it was going to be fairly simple and this book really helped. About 85% of the book is recipes and the other 15% is actually how to make pasta, which is what I needed it for. Even if you already know how to make pasta I would still recommend this book for the recipes but the tutorial at the beginning was very helpful.

This is the first pasta book that I have bought and I bought it alongside a pasta machine, which I have used a couple of times. Having read through the book I am now excited about trying all the recipes, which cover all elements of pasta making. I am really pleased to see some examples of using pasta for deserts which is something I had not thought of before. The trick with this book, and any other I suppose, is not to just look for a recipie to slavishly adhere to but to try your own using the book as a guide. Pasta is so versatile that you can do this. As for actually making pasta, the book covers it well - that is all there is to it, there are no hidden tricks and those who are looking for more detail can stop looking. One good tip I got from a chef, if you are making pasta which you will then cover in sauce, such as spaghetti, then a great way to make the sauce stick to the pasta is to use semolina, instead of flour, as a dusting when rolling it out. The coarse nature of the semolina will help the sauce coat the pasta (make the pasta in the normal way first though!).
Overall a good book and I am glad that I bought it.

Tried out a few of the recipes, must say I am quite impressed. First cookbook, where the balance between being tasty and healthy is great. Don't be fooled by the boring title, the book is one of those you keep coming back to. It is both beautifully illustrated and well-explained.

I bought this for my son to go with the Imperia Pasta Factory Set. He has made many of the recipes which he and his flat mates say are delicious.

Format: Paperback
There are some perfectly good recipes in this book but also one major failing: these aren't especially recipes for Home Pasta Making.

Maybe I mislead myself but I was hoping for more than half-a-dozen pages on how to make pasta, less indeed than the leaflets supplied with pasta machines.

If the book were entitled simply "100 Simple and Successful Pasta Recipes" then it would be accurately described. The references to "pasta machine" and "home pasta making" are simply misleading - if they are what you're looking for then your quest certainly doesn't end here...

We nearly never bought this book because of the previous reviewer. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A MISTAKE!! This is a great book, it has several pages on how to make the pasta - but even better lots of recipes to entice you into trying that pasta maker! Lots of basic and more interesting recipes for everyone.

Bought this because Amazon said "People buy this when they buy the Imperia Pasta Maker". I'd just come back from holiday in Italy where I'd had all kinds of delicious pasta dishes, and had been a keen buyer of freshly made pasta and ravioli from a local shop, Pasta Fresca da Christina.
This book sounded authoritative about the techniques, and the pasta process, but the recipes had all the hallmarks of a Sainsbury recipe card, and no sign of Ricotta and Limoni, or zucchini and gorgonzola, or any of the delicious stuff I'd just had on holiday.

this book is not what it offers to be. there are but three or maybe four pages devoted to using a pasta making machine. the rest of it is a barely adequate and definitely unmemorable book of recipes. as far as telling me what i can do with this new gadget goes, i got more out of the book that came with it -- and that's not in english! how do i get my money back?
