My Take on the Book
This book had a ton of great recipes within it and the best part is that so many of the recipes were using different kinds of pasta, which allows your family to venture out from the norm. On top of this, the cookbook  allows you to get creative with the ways in which you are making the pasta. With this cookbook you can have something new for just shy of 2 months straight and I was impressed that the recipes were easy to follow and make too.  If you love pasta, you will love this book as well!
