    Who better than an Italian to celebrate pasta in all its shapes and sizes, and advise on the best matches between sauces and dough? Many-time author Contaldo (Gennaro's Fast Cook Italian, 2018) selects his 100-plus pasta favorites from among Italy's regions of Liguria and Lombardy, Sardinia and Sicily, among others. The result is a collection of very focused and quick-to-cook dishes, both new and old, that will satisfy almost any palate. Whether describing pasta that is dried or fresh, baked or filled, pasta directions are easy to follow. Readers will find four types of lasagna, instructions for making fresh pasta, the familiars like linguine with clams, and cannelloni coupled with more unusual fare such as radicchio-filled pasta rolls with fontina sauce and a rigatoni cake. Bonuses are tips on cooking the perfect pasta (which starts with using salt and a wooden spoon and ends with saving the pasta-cooking water) and an introduction to unique forms like lagane, bigoli, and pansotti. A non-fancy, no-fuss approach to abbondanza. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
