Description: Fans line up nightly in front of Los Angeles's ever-popular Angeli Caffe, debating which of the imaginative pizzas or rustic panini they'll want to order. Or perhaps tonight they'll choose an inspired pasta. But now, with the long-awaited publication of Angeli Caffe Pizza, Pasta, Panini, we can all prepare any one of Angeli's delicious recipes in less time than you would spend waiting in line.
Angeli Caffe serves the flavors and textures we love to dine on day after day. They're all here: pizzas piled with sausage, fontina, mozzarella, and caramelized onions, or simply scented and drizzled, aglio e olio, with garlic and oil; calzone, sfincione, and panzerotti, folded and filled (baked or deep fried) with lively combinations of ricotta, salami, and tomato sauce or fresh tuna, herbs, and capers. For lunch or a late-afternoon snack there are wondrous panini, delightful cicchetti -- the miniature four-bite sandwiches of Venice -- and delicate tramezzini -- tiny panini made with thinly sliced bread and elegant purees enclosing layers of grilled vegetables and ricotta salata or mashed potatoes, parmesan, and salami.
Because the essence of the Italian trattoria -- and the Angeli Caffe -- is its pasta, the selection offered here is vivid, bountiful, comforting, and delicious. Here are Angeli classics, from a soothing Fettuccine al Burro e Parmigiana to a spicy Penne all'Arrabiata; seasonal specialties, from a light Farfalle con Gamberi alia Primavera with all the fresh tastes of spring to a warm wintry Lasagna Bolognese. And because there are times when nothing but fresh handmade egg pasta will do, there's a recipe simple enough for people who have never made pasta by hand.
Here's everything we love about cooking and eating today -- big flavor without the fuss.
