From the Back Cover
"In The Glorious Pasta of Italy, Domenica Marchetti shares her passion with you. Her recipes for my favorite food -- pasta -- are unpretentious, genuine, and mouthwatering. Brava!" --Giuliano Hazan, author, Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta.

"Domenica has captured the heart and soul of true Italian pasta. Simple but not made easy solely for the American public like so many pasta books before. Simple from centuries of cooking the same dish until it is perfected. Now all of us at home have the wonderful chance to share these delectable treats with our friends and family. My early edition has scores of dog-eared pages. I can't wait. I suggest you don't either." -- Michael Chiarello, chef/owner Bottega restaurant, Food Network host, and vintner Chiarello Family Vineyards

"I am passionate about pasta and would adore to eat it every day of my life. Preparing the homemade pastas in this book makes me feel proud, like an Italian nonna, and the dried pastas will enrich my weekday evenings." -- Cathy Whims, chef owner, Nostrana restaurant
