With preparation time for most recipes less than 20 minutes, Quickies Pasta delivers a delicious and versatile selection of dishes for every busy cook. Pasta is one of the fastest good-for-you dinners around, and an easy-going partner to everything from smoked salmon to basil chicken. In Quickies Pasta, you'll find more than 175 innovative and delicious ways to present this favourite food. Lasagna recipes have been updated by paring extra steps in preparation and slashing fat levels -- and range from a spring vegetable version to an easy-to-layer microwave lasagna that cooks in half an hour. More than 25 veggie pasta recipes are guaranteed to whet the appetite of even the choosiest meat lover. There's a chapter on Oriental Noodles, perfect for dine 'n' dash nights, and Mac 'n' Cheese -- the quintessential comfort food -- goes modern, with all the creaminess and traditional taste, but half the fat and calories. And nothing beats the old-fashioned, satisfying taste of homemade sauce -- whether it's hearty, hot-sausage-and-tomato, or fresh tomato-and-basil -- so of course there's a whole slew of sensational sauces, divided into meat and vegetable categories. There are even recipes for soups and salads, and tips and serving suggestions throughout. Chapters include: Cheese, Chicken, Fish and Seafood, Lasagna, Meat, Oriental Noodles, Salads, Sauces, Meat Sauces, Veggie Sauces, Soups, and Vegetables.
