5 in 10 Pasta and Noodle Cookbook
This dandy little book marks my first effort at quick-and-easy
cooking, and it is a gem. Unlike my other four books, it is a
“package” project, in which the creator of a series hires authors
to write each book.
The focus was creating speedy but delicious pasta dishes using a
few everyday grocery store ingredients and a minimum of effort.
Everything about this book is practical: The interior spiral
binding, colorful, easy-care design, and of course, abundance of
satisfying, anytime recipes. My husband and daughter turn to it
often, and our dinner is pasta and salad two to three nights a
To my regret, this book is out of print. If you have it, you are
in luck! If you don’t, look for it at your local library or in
used book stores, along with several other 5 in 10 titles, written
by good friends of mine.
