fifteen minute pastas


For the pasta lover, there are certain offerings that one finds in homes and trattorias all over Italy. These recipes constitute the basic pasta repertoire: recipes tested and perfected through the centuries.

They also represent the basic truths of a successful pasta recipe: simple and straightforward in preparation; requiring superb and fresh ingredients; combining the ingredients into a sauce of classic harmony; and then adding the pasta that melds perfectly with the sauce.

From this basic repertoire, it is then possible to build and expand your pasta cooking experience -- expanding the varieties of presentation and of tastes; and building on the concepts of melding and harmony.

Start with these classics, and enjoy!
