As people the world over know, pasta's huge variety of shapes, textures and flavours make it the perfect basis for every type of meal. In 'Gino's Pasta' Gino D'Acampo, the master of modern Italian cooking, celebrates his homeland's most famous food export with an inspirational collection of 100 mouth-watering recipes that includes classics such as carbonara, puttanesca and ragu alla bologonese, as well as new twists on old favourites such as lasagne, macaroni and spaghetti vongole.

Divided into six chapters - Fresh and Filled Pasta, Dried Pasta, Baked Pasta, Like Mama Used to Make, Pasta on the Go, and Pasta for those with Allergies - it includes everything from comforting baked pasta dishes, to spicy seafood and healthy vegetarian options, even desserts! Including an introduction by nutritionist Juliette Kellow explaining the many health benefits of pasta - it is a low-salt, low GI food - each recipe has been nutritionally analysed, demonstrating that pasta is not the fattening option it was once thought to be and can be enjoyed at every meal.

This book is a must have for all pasta lovers. Anyone who loves cooking will enjoy this book. Gino has created some great recipes which are easy to make and tastes amazing with results you would not think possible for pasta, or at least not at home.
