It includes a history of pasta, helpful cooking tips, detailed directions to make homemade pasta, and over 100 delicious recipes. Many of her recipes include a QR code that links to a video of her preparing the recipe so you can cook together.

What We’re Trying: Lemon Ricotta Delight 

We wanted to make every single recipe in the book but started with this one since we had everything on hand and could jump right into cooking. We couldn't wait to dive in!

  • Lightening fast: this recipe is fast and fresh with a dreamy, creamy, no-cook sauce. 
  • Pasta possibilities: it has an option of four different pasta shapes, so you can choose your favorite.
  • All seasons: although we made this recipe in March, it would be wonderful in the summer when fresh basil and lemons are at their prime.
