Pasta by Hand by Jenn Louis
My rating: 4 of 5 spoons
This book is more about dumplings than "pasta" per se, but is still a great book--especially for beginners. The dumpling recipes are divided by area (I was very disappointed to see Sicily completely left out!), and then followed by sauce recipes. There is a nice variety of pastas and sauces; enough to keep you busy for some time to come! Try the Gnocchi alla Romana, Potato Trofie with Pesto or Spatzli with Sage and Speck. Mix it up or go traditional--there's something for everyone.
Invite some friends over, make some pasta together and enjoy the food and fellowship. Mangia!
I received a copy of this book from Chronicle Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
