Authentic Italian flavors and cooking techniques join forces with seasonal, regional ingredients for a stunning yet approachable collection of 50 pasta dishes for vegetarians, meat-lovers, and pescatarians alike.
Fresh ingredients, fresh pasta, innovative dishes. What’s not to like? Rising Seattle chef Michela Tartaglia has developed 50 seasonal recipes that showcase the best of Northwest seafood, produce, and meat in creative, delicious pasta dishes. Michela is founder of Pasta Casalinga, a Pike Place Market counter restaurant that serves up new dishes each week from the garden, the ocean, and the farm.
Using favorite ingredients such as salmon and clams and foodie favorites like nettles and chanterelles, this book offers home cooks regional, seasonal pasta dishes that are as comforting as a favorite spaghetti or fettucine dish but as bold and exciting as a hot new restaurant entrée. In addition, a pasta primer helps home cooks make fresh pasta at home and choose the right pasta shape for the right sauce or dish.
