Description: Easy to prepare, healthful, and affordable, pasta is more popular than ever in America. The time has come for Pasta Verde, which offers more than 140 delicious, meatless pasta dishes including recipes for soups, salads, and sauces as well as lasagna, ravioli, and cannelloni. All of the recipes in Pasta Verde make maximum use of the great fresh flavor of vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, peppers, and wild mushrooms; savory herbs including basil, rosemary, and sage ; deliciously tangy Italian-imported Parmesan cheese; and good-for-you olive oil. A lot of tasty garlic and hot red pepper enhance numerous dishes.
For the most intense flavor, sauces are roasted at high heat in the oven, while others derive subtler tastes from steaming or sauteing. As Judith Barrett explains, the Italians love of pasta dates back over centuries and includes dried pasta in every shape, from bow ties (farfalle) to squiggles (rotini) to spaghetti, as well as tender and delicate fresh pasta, which can be easily prepared at home and can now be found in the refrigerated section of every supermarket in America.
The largest chapter is devoted to main-dish pasta entrees, such as Penne with Roasted Asparagus and Shaved Grana and Hot Red Pepper Fettucine with Roasted Sweet Pepper Sauce. There are also chapters on pasta soups, like Angel Hair Pasta in Broth with Fresh Herbs, pasta salads and dressings, and baked and filled pasta dishes. And for the most health-conscious pasta lovers, there is a whole chapter of heart-healthy reduced-fat recipes, like Fusilli with Zucchini and Garlic Sauce.
From Italian classics to the authors own personal pasta creations, all of the recipes are aimed at keeping preparation simple and using generally available ingredients, making Pasta Verde a must for all pasta lovers.
