Pasta Italiana: 100 Recipes from Fettuccine to Conchiglie


by Gino D'Acampo

Book Description
Celebrity chef and international food personality, Gino D'Acampo celebrates his homeland's most famous export with 100 mouthwatering pasta dishes for every occasion in his fourth book, Paste Italiana: 100 Recipes from Fettucine to Conchiglie

Gino's cooking motto is minimum effort, maximum satisfaction, and in this book he goes home to Italy to make the most of simple ingredients without ever sacrificing flavor or the authenticity of each dish. He serves up classics like carbonara, puttanesca and bolognese while at the same time putting his "Gino" spin on old favorites like lasagne con pesto or creating new dishes like taglietelle in salsa tartara.

As he did with his last book The Italian Diet, which was featured on the Today Show, Gino begins this book with a little help from nutritionist Juliette Kellow to promote the nutritional benefits of pasta - and each tantalizing recipe contains nutritional information. This chapter is followed by Gino's invaluable tips for perfect pasta. Fun pasta fact: Did you know that Italy has more than 600 different shapes of pasta, and believe it or not, each has been designed specifically for a particular sauce?

Gino begins this pasta adventure with his very own recipe for fresh egg tagliatelle and even shares his mother's infamous lasagne recipe. And, don't worry if you don't have time to make your own pasta, Gino showcases some of his best recipes for dried pasta from Penne all'Emiliana with peas, pork, white wine and fragrant rosemary to Linguine allo Zafferano, oozing with the flavor of the delicate saffron sauce. There are baked pastas to serve a crowd - eat like the Romans do with Gnocchi alla Romans con Prosciutto. He rounds out this ultimate collection of pasta recipes with spicy seafood ideas, healthy vegetarian options, and wonderful gluten- free versions. There are even pasta desserts!
