Few of us, though, have the leisure to create a classic Bolognese meat sauce from scratch. For those who are as pressed for time as they are starved for a toothsome bowl of beautifully sauced pasta, Giuliano Hazan has ...more

2.5 Wasn't impressed stars

Arg I have been debated what to rate this for almost a week now!

This book's blurb is all about well-balanced, scrumptious, fresh , pasta... but what you get is eat processed pasta and douse it in butter and cream but you better have fresh tomatoes

this books recipes are standard to my tastes. AND not one fresh pasta meal.

Things that bother me:

Many of the recipes are grab the box of pasta labeled farfalle throw some tomatoe

I'm nowhere near being an amazing cook, but I try to make some recipes from time to time and usually it tastes fine. I'm particularly into making al kinds of different pastas or curries, so this book was just fine for me.

Some of the recipes look really great (I haven't had the time to cook some, but will definitely do this once I've got more time), and there's a great variety of different sorts of sauces. I liked the fact that the vegat

How many time have you, like myself watched a cooking show and watched as they made pasta from scratch, and thought to yourself I could do that? Well no

The recipes seem pretty simple.
1. Spaghetti with raw tomatoes and peppers.
Took me ~40 min, because I did not not have enough water in the pot initially, so had to add a few more quarts before boiling. The food processor was also not set up.
The result: Fresh tasty, light. Like eating a salad that has spaghetti in it. Perfect for light lunch or summer dinner.

Update May31,2011
I've made quite a few recipes from this book. I've learned to fill the pot for pasta first, because it takes a long time

Thirty Minute Pasta by Giuliano Hazan has a little bit of everything related to pastas, not just recipes. Contents include The Many Shapes of Pastas where he details different pastas, both flour and water and egg pastas, and suggests best pairings for them: tagliatelle for Bolognese Sauce; bucatini for robust sauces; fusilli and rigatoni for chunky sauces; cavatappi for soups; and spahettini for simple, savory sauces.

The Pasta Pantry goes into non-perishables for the pantry to keep on hand (boui

Yes, the price for an ebook is not a misprint! Here is a book featuring 100 "quick and easy" pasta recipes, all of which can be produced within half an hour.

Based on a book originally published in 2009, here the reader gets a brief introduction to the different types of pasta and how to make it before seeing how to cook it. The recipes are split then into pasta soups, vegetarian pastas, seafood pastas and meat pastas. Each recipe is rather concise, matter-of-fact which in a book designed to get
Catherine Woodman
On the one hand, these are all pretty straight forward recipes, without anything unusual. On the other, there is good advice on what types of pasta shapes with what sort of sauce, and maybe it is time to start matching those a bit more thoughtfully and maybe this is a good place to start (while I acknowledge the potential benefits to doing such a matching job, I tend to buy the same sorts of pasta to have on hand--penne, spaghetti, cappellini, farfelle, angel hair for the moments when it has to ...more
Rachelle (Rachelle's Reading)
First off this book was visually stunning, all the pasta photo insets were appealing and appetizing. The equipment and pasta shapes guides in the beginning were very useful.

The majority of the recipes were fairly simple though a few of them took me longer than the prescribed thirty minutes of the title, also some ingredients were either fairly expensive or difficult to come by. The variety of recipes and ingredients was great, especially with fussy eaters in mind.

A go-to book to make a fast, wholesome dinner that isn’t the same noodles you had last week. Fresh ideas and easy to follow directions! A wonderful addition to your cookbook collection – but don’t put this one on the shelf – keep it on the counter and use it! Great photos and fun tips! Enjoy! NetGalley and Abrams provided an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I'm enchanted...from the apron-strings of the great Marcella Hazan comes her son, Guiliano, with a practical, 21st century approach to Italian cooking and pasta in thirty minutes. These are the recipes that are quickly done, inventive, fresh and fast. He coaches you step by step so pasta and sauce are completed in time for one another. Before you know it, you'll learn the timing for yourself!
