I consider this a must read for all who love pasta.This book really opened my eyes to pasta and allowed me to experience its potential past Spaghetti with marinara.I admit I mainly bought this book because Giada herself was doing a book signing. I also figured once her signature was inside I probably wouldn't use the recipes to avoid damage.However, once I tried a couple of her recipes I've decided to forget the autograph. There are some ridiculously good pasta combinations in here. She has ever...
Giada De Laurentiis has become quite well known as a result of her expertise in cooking. This cookbook is another among a number that she has authored. And it is a nice addition to the collection of cookbooks "out there." We do a lot of pasta cooking and Italian cooking at home. We cook up a "gravy" each Sunday (tomato sauce and accompanying herbs and goodies). The recipes in this book will be solid additions to our repertoire. The book begins with a nice, brief essay on the nature of pasta, con...
I always love watching Giada's television shows on Food Network. Her cookbooks are a great way to bring more of her delicious recipes into the home. Everyday Pasta contains all sorts of recipes that use the Italian staple of pasta, in all its shapes and sizes. I tried a few of the recipes from the book, and they tasted great. But then pretty much every dish I've made from Giada's recipes tasted good.
A great book! I love how Giada is more realistic about cooking than some chefs- most of the recipes really are fairly simple, her pantry staples consist of many items I do actually keep on hand, and she is not afraid of pre-packaged ingredients. She also incorporates low-fat and low-sodium ingredients directly into many of her recipes. I started a list of which recipes I wanted to try and realized it was so long that I needed to go buy this book (I had borrowed it from the library). Yummy!
I learned a lot about cooking pasta beyond spaghetti and marinara sauce from this book.
Reading books written by/about TV shows about food is always a mistake.
A whole book about pasta.. what more can an Italian ask for?This had some pretty good recipes that I'm hoping to try at some point, and came with a homemade pasta recipe that seems promising!
Another exceptional cookbook from Giada De Laurentiis.
Everything that I have found in here is AMAZING!!! There isn't anything we have tried in this book that wasn't absolutely delicious. My husband cook together every Saturday night from one of our cookbooks and we usually pull something from Giada because everything she creates is a hit with us. If you love anything about pasta you will LOVE this.
This is my favorite cookbook by De Laurentiis so far. The recipes are simpler and seem to be more appealing to my taste. There are many color photos of the recipes which I find especially helpful in a cookbook. I have picked two recipes to try from this book and will update my review once I have made them.
I like the conversational tone of Giada's cookbooks, and the ingredients and instructions themselves are uncomplicated. I picked the pasta book over her more general Italian fare because I'm a pretty novice cook and spaghetti is always simple, quick, and delicious enough, but i need help in the creativity department where my meals are concerned.
Giada is my favorite Food Network chef! Her meals are not only easy and fun to prepare -- they are absolutely delicious, and for the most part, healthy. I like how this book centers on pasta -- because face it, most of us who cook Italian, want to cook pasta!
What I like about DiLaurentiis is that her recipes are all relatively easy, but usually always delicious. Many of the recipes in this book and on her show have become staples in my kitchen. This is a great book if you eat a lot pasta, as we do in my home.
I learned that Giada's cleavage photographs nicely. Oh, and by the way the food is fantastic! We tried many recipes and they were out of this world. So, you cook while your husband "browses" through the book and everyone is happy!
If you are a pasta eater/lover than this is a must have for your cook book collection.Lots of different recipes to try out for one simple kind of pasta and many others that will become your favorites.
Easily my favorite cookbook ever. (must be the italian in me) It is so easy to modify all of her receipes too. I have never been disappointed with any. I have a few of her books (all good) and this one is my favorite
I have used this cookbook for many years but wanted to dive into it again with fresh, hungry eyes. My favorite from this is Orcheitte with greens and goat cheese which I have made for lunch or a light dinner on a hot day. I decide to add the salad with citrus vinaigrette to my quarantine lunch salad menu. I love the emphasis on moderation of pasta instead of total abstinence and the fact that it can be included in healthy recipes. She adds so many veggies and good fats like olive oil and nuts th...
Pasta lover 101Great layout with tons of easy pasta recipes. Again I love all the history lessons & fun facts about ingredients as you go along.
Some interesting recipes ... in fact we are having the Chicken in Lemon Cream Sauce with Penne for dinner tonight
Lots of yummy Italian pasta dishes to enjoy.
Appealing pictures. Solid recipes.
All pasta, but pretty basic for Giada. Not one of her best.
I have been cooking for a long time, but I learn something new from Giada every time, I watch her or read the information she gives everyone in her cookbooks, it's not just recipes it's a learning tool.
I have yet to try any of the recipes here, as I just read through the recipes today. I have saved quite a couple and will re-visit the star rating once I get the opportunity to try some. I was caught off-guard by how defensive Giada (or whoever wrote this) was on eating pasta and the size that she is. I know that we are in flux as to whether we consider carbohydrates to be the building blocks of Satanic empires and pasta (and probably bread) are the embodiments of our collective social aversions...
This is a great collection of pasta recipes and also includes salad, appetizer and dessert recipes. We don’t have television feed but I have read that many of these recipes are featured on the Food Network channel. This book highlights many beautiful photos and just about all recipes are easy to prepare. Anything that helps me get dinner on the table in under a half hour is a winner for me! Some of the baked pasta dishes will take more planning, time-wise, but I sure look forward to trying them....
I like all of Giada De Laurentiis's cookbooks. This one, "Everyday Pasta: Pasta Recipes for Every Occasion" offers recipes for a wide variety of pasta dishes, including main courses and side dishes. I love pasta, especially with cheese and tomato, a bit more than I probably should, so I definitely enjoy this book. I even like trying some of the other types of dishes that I have not tried before.The recipes are clear and easy to understand and follow. This book would be a good gift for pasta love...
This is a well written cookbook. You won't find anything overly complicated or fussy in here. There are several recipes that caught my eye and that I look forward to cooking:1) Farfalle with Creamy Mushroom Gorgonzola Sauce2) Angel Hair Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese3) Wagon Wheels with Artichoke Pesto
As someone trying to expand my culinary repertoire and wanting to improve my grasp of Italian basics, this was a great book. I love pasta and all these new, and really quite simple (in that they won't cost a gazillion dollars and don't need three days of prep work) recipes will get a lot of use by our family.
A good assortment of pasta recipes of all kinds. Just posted the simple, comforting and good Little Stars with Butter and Parmesan. http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/20...It could become my comfort food staple. ;-)
My go to cookbook for pasta! Love all of the recipes especially the Sausage, Peppers and Onion pasta. It's my husband's favorite. This cookbook is so easy to follow and allows the home cook to feel like an Italian chef. Also, a great reference to make your own pasta creations.
