"There is nothing complicated about pasta; it is one of the simplest foods to cook and also one of the most versatile. As comfort food, pasta is unbeatable. It is warming, filling and above all, mouth-wateringly delicious. Pasta from the Murdoch Books Test Kitchen offers you recipes for short, filled, long, curly and flat pasta dishes, plus some general guidelines for cooking with pasta. Try old favourites such as creamy penne carbonara, or be a little more adventurous with spaghettini with squid in black ink."
