Elegant or simple, humble or classic, the infinite variety of pasta has made it a contemporary staple and the original five-minute meal. With more than 150 truly authentic recipes, this comprehensive cookbook covers everything the pasta fanatic needs to know--from dough and shapes to sauces and stuffings. Eating pasta is meant to be a sensual experience--with each of the various textures awakening the palate--and this book evokes this experience in mouthwatering photographs that accompany each recipe.

The book opens with an informative chapter on making your own fresh pasta, including specialist needs such as wheat-free pastas. Following are chapters on Pasta Soups, Instant Pasta, Everyday Pasta, Light and Healthy Pasta, and Pasta to Impress. Throughout the book are master class recipes built to lend themselves to myriad variations, according to taste and seasonal availability; you could develop a new and delicious pasta meal for every day of the year.
