Fresh Ways with Pasta.
Now, in comes our new book, Fresh Ways with Pasta ($7.95; shown above right), published on April 20. Boasting a light, contemporary approach, our recipes take advantage of fresh pasta (homemade or purchased), lean chicken and seafood, delicate sauces, and fresh vegetables. From soups and salads to main dishes and main-dish companions, the book offers more than 125 new pasta recipes, each accompanied by a nutrition analysis and preparation and cooking times. Illustrative of the West's ever-new ways with pasta is the spaghetti-bar party presented on page 192 of this issue. This kind of party puts the guests to work: each person styles his or her own sauce from a buffet of ingredients, heats it quickly on the barbecue, then adds to ready-and-waiting cooked pasta. These two Sunset Books--and more than 200 others--are available through booksellers; or order directly by sending a check, payable to Sunset Books ($6.95 for Pasta Cook Book, $7.95 for Fresh Ways with Pasta, plus $2.50 for postage and handling), to Book for the Month, Sunset Books, 80 Willow Rd., Menlo Park, Calif. 94025.
