Pasta: Every Way for Every Day shows what a versatile, as well as healthy, food pasta really is. Written by Eric Treuille, director of the Books for Cooks cooking school in Notting Hill, and Anna del Conte, author of 12 books on Italian cooking, it explains the various types of pasta, how to make them and how to cook them. The level of cooking is described for each recipe and there is plenty to choose from "quick cook", "no cook" and "slow cook" recipes.
Throughout, the authors give their own hints and tips, from the proper way to boil pasta (never fling it in a pan with some water and a pinch of salt) to freezing tomato puree (easy when you know how). There are suggestions for fast and simple sauces, pasta that children love and pasta to impress friends, as well as recipes to use when cooking for large numbers and dishes that can be cooked in advance.
The recipes are easy to follow with the methods of preparation in the same order as the list of ingredients. This is a book that is suitable for hopeless cooks as well as the clever ones. If you follow the recipes, it is unlikely you will go wrong. --Judith Spelman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

the great pasta dishes I have made for them is down to me, but it
is this book that deserves all the praise!.
Take it from me ,as someone who used to burn toast, the easy to follow instructions and easy to get ingredients can make you also
a highly regarded cook amongst your peers.
The book also provides tips on how to make your own pasta and how
prepare the food.It is also beautifully illustrated with photographs that give an idea how the food should eventually
The thing that has really impressed me is the pasta's for occassions section. As the book has a huge mix of pasta's for different occassions this section groups them into the occassions e.g. Pasta Solo, Pasta for Children, Pasta to Impress (and I have impressed ;-) )
This is a fantastic book. The only down side now is that I expect all recipe books to offer the same standard of instruction and the same number of impressive recipes.
Now I'm off to open an Italian Restraurant that serves top notch pasta...always
I can safely conclude that the pasta dishes that I have made from this cookbook so far have been quick and easy and my son has loved it up! So a big thumbs up for this one.
The only problem is that the recipes are designed for 4 people - but the 2 of us always manage to polish the whole lot off!
Recommended without reservation.
