Pasta: More Than 50 Authentic Italian Recepie
Product Code: YFD0089
Pasta is the cornerstone of the healthy Mediterranean diet. It is served with nutrient-rich sauces based on anti-oxidant tomatoes, fibre-filled vegetables and beans, heart-healthy olive oil and fish, and judicious quantities of protein-packed cheese, poultry, and meats. Current dietary guidelines suggest that around 60 percent of our daily calorie intake should come from carbohydrates, making pasta an ideal choice. Correctly cooked al dente pasta has a low glycemic index, which means that it doesn t cause unhealthy spikes in blood sugar levels and if you prefer to avoid refined carbohydrates, it is readily available in a range of whole-wheat (wholemeal) varieties. Pasta features quick and easy recipes using readymade pasta types like spaghetti and penne, but also has recipes for homemade fresh, filled and baked pasta, including tagliatelle, ravioli, lasagna, and gnocchi. Step-by-step instructions in the preliminary pages explain how to make pasta at home.
