Book Description

27 Oct 2006
Best-selling author, David Joachim presents 200 creative recipes for easy dinners that start with bottled pasta sauce, of all types - pesto, alfredo, and clam sauce in addition to plain old marinara. Everybody gets tired of pasta sauce on pasta, but we eat it because it's easy. David will show you how to use jarred sauce in innovative ways to create dishes that look complicated, but are really easy to make. With all the new gourmet pasta sauces available at every supermarket, it's easy to make sophisticated food that goes way beyond lasagna and baked ziti.

Review

This book, in spite of the 2 star review another reviewer gave it, is actually quite useful. I'm no novice in the kitchen, far from it, yet I found recipes in this book to be generally quick, easy, and tasty. And in contrast to many other cookbooks, it doesn't focus on one 'type' of regional cooking - rather, it gives a pretty varied choice, which is helpful, especially if you sometimes feel tired of cooking the same old things. I highly recommend this book. --thomasjpn

Just the cover of this book will cause you to take a second glance. You find yourself needing to touch its two compartments of spaghetti sauce, soft and squishy punchable, set into the hard cover of the book. Joachim has done your research for you, on all the different types of jarred sauces yourself, even what you can expect to find in them and their different price ranges. We all know about the many jarred red, tomato sauces, including Marinara and the pinkish vodka sauce. However, Joachim wants to alert us to the conveniences of off-white Alfredo, green pesto and yellow/orange Cheddar cheese sauces also put in jars for our convenience. Then these can be changed up with different bacons, broths, cheeses, prepackaged doughs, greens, chopped produce, premarinated meats, assorted condiments and the additions of certain wines. Here's some of the varied concoctions one can make with few ingredients, not at all always pasta with sauce: Shredded Beef Burritos Sweet and Sour Braised Brisket Pork Medallions with Port Cream Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Red Pesto Crust Pork Rollatine with Raisins and Pine Nuts Pan-Seared Chicken with Eggplant Sauce Shrimp Remoulade Salad Polenta with Saffron Chickpea Sauce Pesto Tuna Pitas Butternut Squash Soup Classic Beef Stew Roasted Beets Alfredo Provencal Spinach Pie Southwestern Corn Pudding If you know someone who claims they, 'Can't cook at all,' this book will help them out a whole lot. --food site of the day dot com

While the book did present a varied array of recipes, my husband and I were disappointed that there were not more actual SAUCE recipes. Guess we should have read the title more closely. The book does, however, give the reader a choice of using their own homemade sauce or (gasp!) jarred sauce when following the recipes in the book. We have only tried one recipe thus far, so will have to reserve judgement until we've experimented with a few more. --c parillo

Here's some of the varied concoctions one can make with few ingredients, not at all always pasta with sauce:

Shredded Beef Burritos

Sweet and Sour Braised Brisket

Pork Medallions with Port Cream

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Red Pesto Crust

Pork Rollatine with Raisins and Pine Nuts

Pan-Seared Chicken with Eggplant Sauce

Shrimp Remoulade Salad

Polenta with Saffron Chickpea Sauce

Pesto Tuna Pitas

Butternut Squash Soup

Classic Beef Stew

Roasted Beets Alfredo

Provencal Spinach Pie

Southwestern Corn Pudding

If you know someone who claims they, "Can't cook at all," this book will help them out a whole lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I took a chance on this one. 23 Jun 2014
By tzefirah - Published on Amazon.com
My husband loves sauce from a jar, so I thought that this might make him happy. It's made ME happy! I love these recipes and hope to get to almost all of them some day. Not just pasta, but fish, shellfish, beef, lamb, red sauce, white sauce -- lots of interesting combinations. I'm sold.
