Second in the Monday-to-Friday series, here's a pasta book with a difference. For two-worker families, single parents, and other busy people, Ms. Urvater marries the innovative Monday-to-Friday pantry-based approach with everyone's favorite food, pasta. The result is a guide to making over 175 delicious pasta dishes in roughly the time it takes to boil a pot of water. The range of recipes includes soup (Comforting Pasta Fagioli), seafood (Scallops Casino with Bowties), meat (Beef and Glass Noodles, Chic Chorizo), and salad (Couscous and Lentil Salad, Rotelle a la Greek Salad). Monday-to-Friday and the noodle: It's as perfect a match as spaghetti and meatballs.
