This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Mindy!
At least twice a week (and when hubby isn’t home to cook) we eat pasta. It’s one of the easiest and tastiest things to make. And I don’t have to spend a lot of time laboring over it. Now hubby on the other hand, actually enjoys creating gourmet dishes, including pasta dishes that take more than 15 minutes to prep. I like to go the easy route…ground turkey breast, spices, and a can of crushed organic tomatoes. Throw in some whole wheat penne and it’s a quick, healthy meal.
Now, I know there are multiple ways to create pasta and sauces…alfredo, tomato, seafood-based etc. But I had NO IDEA there were 350 ways to make pasta dishes. And…most in under 30 minutes. Ok…I’m listening.
The Silver Spoon Book of Pasta includes 350 pasta recipes and includes some of the most popular dishes from the international best-seller, The Silver Spoon (which by the way is considered the Bible of Italian cooking). The recipes come from every region of Italy and can be used for casual family dining or gourmet meals for entertaining.
I am a visual person, so I like cookbooks with lots of pictures. Of course, my dishes never quite look like the picture, but there are plenty in this book to aspire towards. The recipes are mostly easy to follow and while I’m sure they take most people 30 minutes, I tend to be a perfectionist (and slow in the kitchen, particularly with a 2 year old by my side).
The Silver Spoon Book of Pasta retails for $39.95 and is on sale now online and at retailers nationwide!
