This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Apr 02, Jennifer Stephens rated it it was amazing Shelves: We have a tenant staying with us in our home this year. I have very high standards when it comes to Italian cookbooks, having long ago fallen head over heels for the legendary work of Marcella Hazan and her Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking which sets the standard for Italian cookery.
The chapters are thoughtfully arranged, with the first devoted to the basics of pasta enjoyment — the necessary equipment, a encyclopedic listing of pasta types, common pasta dough recipes, and the most essential of sauces such as fresh tomato.
The Glorious Pasta of Italy | Domenica Cooks
My husband and our tenant his rent covers room and board, lucky fellow spent the entirety of dinner that evening clinking their forks happily against their pasta bowls as they fed themselves, letting their free flowing grunts, mmms, and other expressions of ecstasy speak to their appreciation.
The sauce was so easy, especially since I own a handy food mill. I started with fresh tomatoes that were warmed and then run through the food mill to shed their skin and seeds and then cooked the resultant juice down to a rich, thick, and flavorful sauce with just the additions of garlic, olive oil, a dash of salt and fresh basil.
No oregano or bay leaves or sugar was needed here! The fresh tomatoes were the stars of the evening and it was delicious.

While everyone enjoyed the pasta, this time it was me who keep making the happy pleasure sounds. Woe to the low carb dieters out there- this cookbook is sure to make them regret their carb free lifestyle. As is obvious from my glowing praise, I think this cookbook is a winner.
The only improvement I might suggest for the next edition is even more photography- one picture for every recipe is always appreciated. Oct 05, N. Light rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you love all things pasta like I do, then you have to pick up this cookbook. I learned so much and the recipes, while quite advanced, were fantastic. I tried several and honestly, the learning curve was steep. But I got the hang of it the more recipes I tried.
Makes a great gift, too! May 15, Joseph rated it it was amazing Shelves: Okay, a friend recommended this book. I don’t buy many cookbooks because I have too many. When I buy them I’m very picky and this one ain’t cheap, especially when you are like me and buy stuff at Friends of the Library book sales, used at Amazon or cage books from friends. This book is beautiful and the photos are exceptional.
More importantly, the book begins with pasta essentials depicting cheese Okay, a friend recommended this book. More importantly, the book begins with pasta essentials depicting cheeses, pasta shapes, various ingredients, necessary tools and more.
Her “pasta glossary” is the best I’ve seen. It’s a concise, complete reference. What hooked me though was the recipes for soups. The first one I tried was ministra di pasta e piselli pasta and pea soup The author uses ‘cook’s notes’ extensively to provide options substitutes and to help you avoid mistakes.
Since I seem more than able to make mistakes and too often catch my self wondering “what if I added or switched or? It is almost as if the author anticipates what I might be thinking. In other words, this is a very ‘user friendly’ cookbook written by someone who loves Italian food. In other words, it ain’t your average Food Network FN ‘celebrity chef’ taking advantage and flogging his wares to FN groupies.
Ah, I don’t want to help Guy Ferry or Fieri or however he spells his name now buy any more Lamborghinis. If you like pasta in various preparations this might be a good acquisition for you Aug 10, Elizabeth B rated it it was amazing. If you like pasta, you NEED this book. The recipes are absolutely to die for and it provides a wonderful introduction to Italian pasta – types of cheeses, types of pasta, standard Italian ingredients and potential substitutions.
Oct 14, Serge Pierro rated it really liked it Shelves: This is an incredible book on the pastas of Italy.
Included are a wide range of recipes, covering all of the types of pasta imaginable. Includes many classics and some that I was exposed to for first time. Throughout the book there are some nice rustic photographs of the finished dishes.

Glorious Pasta of Italy
Heard about this on The Splendid Table and had to buy. Cheaper than the kitchaid Sam’s trying to gloriouus me into. Jan 02, Scott rated it really liked it Shelves: Some great recipes I look forward to trying. Includes a few amazing photographs could use more!
Jan 02, Christina rated it really liked it. This book helped me make my first homemade pasta! Jun 06, Brandon Henke rated it liked it Shelves: How exactly does one rate a cookbook?
It seems fairly obvious that, unlike other books, one must go beyond the simple act of reading before feeling sufficiently qualified to judge its overall quality. I did so by cooking three dishes: These were decent, very good, and fantastic respectively.
They also covered a spectrum of different ingredients and were fairly simple preparation-wise. The tone of the book is very colloquial with much of the information being recollections of Marchetti’s domestic life. The complete lack of photos in the section describing the different domenjca shapes was a huge mistake and could have been been easily remedied.
Organizing the content by noodle soups, pasta asciutta, stuffed pastas, baked dishes, etc was a wise choice and I have several recipes bookmarked accordingly. Lots of variety and plenty of delicious stuff to be found in this book. Jan 06, Loren rated it it was ok Shelves: The book is beautifully designed, marchetyi great photos of the dishes. Despite the great presentation though, the outcome of the recipes I followed didn’t taste good, were time intensive to make, and came out visually unappealing.
If only one of these problems were present, I could see tje a little more time with the book to see if I could uncover recipes that worked. Considering how the few recipes I tried were complete failures, I’ll be ita,y this book from my collection. Feb 21, Steven rated it liked it Shelves: The author covers most, if not all, the pasta shapes and her tutorial on homemade pastas look easy to follow for the novice. Except for the soups the majority of her recipes are Abruzzese.
So, if you like pasta dishes heavy on cream, cheese and mushroom s you will not be disappointed.
