The Pasta Machine Cookbook is a major revision of the first cookbook to focus on the pasta itself, rather than the sauces to go with it. It's full of new, improved recipes for both hand-cranked and electric pasta machines. Home-made pasta is quick, easy, and a delicious improvement over store-bought pasta. Pasta has fewer calories and carbs—and more protein—than rice or potatoes. All the recipes here are written for hand-cranked and electric machines. The Pasta Machine Cookbook includes sections on different types of pasta; hints on the machines, cooking, and serving; and a section on sauces, toppings, and fillings.
