Definitely a drool worthy book. The recipes all sound amazing! I've only made a few so far, but they've all been "magnifico." The cookbook is divided into nine sections, from soups to appetizers to meats and pastas. It's all there. There is even a great opening section on the different regions and variety of Italian food that I appreciated and helped me get more into some of the recipes. Accompanying every recipe are helpful tips such as substitutions, wine pairings, estimated time, and whether ...more

Best easy Italian cookbook yet

If Simplicity is what you are looking for in a cookbook, this one is definitely for you. I wish all cookbooks on international cuisine were as well organized and easy to use.

"The 5-Ingredient Italian Cookbook:101 Regional Classics Made Simple" from author FRANCESCA MONTILLO, is a taste-filled treat for lovers of Italian cooking and culture.

What could be better than an Italian cookbook and a 5 ingredient one at that? Both hubby and I love Italian food and a lot of recipes for Italia food has a lot of ingredients that can be prohibitive. This one that has 5 ingredients is perfect if you don't want to have to buy a lot of stuff. I made the Sausage with Mushrooms and Tomatoes, although I did add in some wide egg noodle pasta, it was delicious. I have a few other recipes marked such as Italian Style Pork Chops and Lemon Bundt Cake. Wha ...more

I found great recipes in this book. I love authentic Italian food. Although these easy to follow simple recipes may not be the way your Italian Grandma may have prepared themail highlighted dishes, the steps to making them that the author presents come from someone who knows how to cook good food. Finding the ingredients for the recipes was quite uncomplicated.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to cook and eat good food and wants to keep the preparations simple.

OMG! Such good looking food...Absolutely drooling over it! I have not tried they recipes yet but as a professional cook I know they are going to be great!. Such simple ingredients and cooking, a great way to get you in and out of the kitchen fast. Looking forward to experiencing a lot of these. The soups look fantastic and so easy to make. This is a great travel companion if you are are in a kitchenette with limited facilities.

Maybe this is a good cookbook full of wonderful recipes but there are hardly any pictures so I will never know if there is something worth trying.

Simple and tasty Italian food, in an easy-to-make way. Not the most spectacular Italian cookbook, but certainly a useful one.

I absolutely love this book

My dad's was Italian, from Lombardy. The recipes here are deliciously authentic, and beautifully described. Lovely book. Very enjoyable to read and use.
