Spaghetti and Tagliatelle

Spaghetti and Tagliatelle Summary

Cookbook series: Italian Food is a series of 12 volumes developed with the intention of presenting “authentic” Italian cookbooks. This is because Italian cuisine, though loved and appreciated, is often a victim of free (and sometimes imaginative) reinterpretations.    
Assets: Each volume includes 60 illustrated recipes from the Italian culinary tradition, without any re-adaptation in terms of preparation techniques or choice of ingredients (for this reason, the typical ingredients used in recipes are described and illustrated in a special section of each volume, where possible alternatives are also recommended). Quantities are indicated both following the international metric system (g, kg, dl) and the Imperial system (oz, lbs, cups).  
Contents: In this cookbook you will find all the tricks you will need. If you don’t have enough time or don’t want to make your own homemade pasta, you can still learn all the secrets to flavor it in a traditional and genuine way. You will find not just the famous classic recipes but others as well that, although are less famous outside of Italy, still taste very good, like Carbonara and carpet shell clam sauces and pasta with pesto sauce… Preparing the best recipes of one of the most well-loved cuisines in the world will become very easy.

Finally a book on Italian food with REAL Italian recipes, not the dubiously authentic ones you can find in restaurants where I live! Great pictures too!55

My father bought some mussels and I cooked them with cherry tomatoes as per the recipe. It was Delicious with a capital “D”.55
