This boldly illustrated cookbook is about the world's most beloved and versatile noodle, so you can finally become a legitimate pasta master. Circumnavigate the delicious world of pasta with this one-of-a-kind illustrated cookbook. California-born Deborah Kaloper lays down the law with more than sixty incredible recipes, from rustic Italian classics to New World fusions. Each of the chapters is based on a pasta shape, namely: long pasta, short pasta, flat and ribbon-cut pasta, and so on. Satisfy the whole family with recipes for spaghetti and meatballs, traditional macaroni and cheese. Then experiment with the really long and fun-sounding Italian words: penne arrabbiata, mussels with fregola, gorgonzola gnocchi al forno, and many more. Beautifully bold and detailed illustrations by Alice Oehr make this more than a cookbook--it's a work of pasta art. It's also the third in Alice and Deborah's Topia series, following Ramen-topia and Taco-topia. Pick up a copy and join the cult of Pastafarianism now.
