• Do you crave forkfuls of succulent spaghetti?

“What a great little book. It truly lives up to it's name. The recipes are so easy to follow and there is such a good variety, including really delicious sauces to accompany them.

"I love pesto, so the first one I made was the Ligurian Pesto Pasta - heaven! We all loved it. Then the spaghetti carbanara - supreme! Pastastic is now printed out and is on my kitchen book-shelf. It's such good value I highly recommend it to anyone who loves pasta or mediterranean food.”

In addition to these recipes, you’ll also learn…

• How much salt to use in each meal (as a beginner I hated reading ‘salt to taste’ – who knows?)

• What not to include in that crucial last lasagna layer

• How to make the perfect tomato sauce and adapt it in future

• The best way to prepare basil leaves

• And much more...

“Your recipe book is a treasure trove of easy-to-make dishes. You just make life simple for pasta lovers.

“There is something for everyone inside, from easy dishes for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen (like me!) to those who want to be more adventurous and try their hand at making their own pasta. My favorites? The “Much Loved Carbonara Sauce” and the “Easy Cream Penne Pasta” - so simple and delicious!"

- Maria De Alejandro,

What makes Pastastic different?

Pastastic Pasta CookbookPastastic is truly a beginner friendly cookbook, instead of merely paying lip-service to the idea.

That's because since I (Matt, a pasta-obsessed Brit) was lucky enough to marry into Marisa’s family, I've spent years learning these recipes and writing them in English for the first time.

But I’m no trained cook, so they have to be explained well for me to be able to pull them off!

I’ve asked every “Do what?” question - so you don’t have to!

Here's why Pastastic is such a fool-proof buy:

• Straightforward step-by-step cooking guides

• Steps are explained in chronological order - no confusing multitasking the first time you try a recipe

• I use clear plain English, not elitist cooking terms

• Pastastic is 100% full of pure pasta pleasure… not just one chapter like most Italian cookbooks!

• You’ll even learn lots of useful Italian terms and food history as you go. (Pasta puttanesca anyone? It’s a torrid tale...)

With Pastastic there's simply no room for confusion!

“I'd always wanted to make a lasagna but had been too nervous to try. The simple instructions in Pastastic were easy to follow and the vegetable lasagne was a hit with all the family. I also love entertaining, so the creamy Smoked Salmon Penne has quickly become my favourite dinner party recipe. I feel like a gourmet chef serving such a beautiful dish!

"With 123 mouth-watering pages of recipes, I won't be wondering what to cook for supper for a long time."

- Kate Oosthuis,

“I thought I loved pasta before, but reading Pastastic changed all that… now I'm a pasta fanatic!

“Using the easy-to-follow instructions, I made a batch of homemade egg pasta that had such great flavor and texture it literally knocked the socks off the the dry pasta I had been using. I whipped up a batch of the smoked salmon penne featured in the book (substituting my homemade pasta for packet penne) and with the first bite I learned what true love really is.

“Thank you, Matt, for opening my eyes to a world of taste tempting pasta-bilities!"

“What a great recipe book! I'm addicted to pasta, and the recipes here have really expanded my usual pasta repertoire (LOVED the rocket pesto recipe!).

"Got to say, though, that it was the fresh pasta section that I got really excited about. Much as I love to cook, I've always been a little nervous about tackling homemade pasta, but the directions in Pastastic provide just enough detail to get it right without instruction overload. Really wonderful!"
