    Book Description
    Keep the right pastas in your pantry, along with the other ingredients recommended by Joie Warner, plus a few items in the fridge, and you can always enjoy a heaping plate of pasta tossed with any of a variety of zesty sauces simply by boiling water to cook the pasta while you combine the ingredients for the topping. This is the promise Warner proves to perfection in 75 high-flavor ways. For example, she adds chopped tomatoes to a homemade Caesar salad dressing tossed with bow ties and tops linguine with Spicy Tomato Salsa.

    For sauces using meat, poultry, or seafood, she sometimes "cheats" a bit: in Tomato Sauce with Clams, you warm the sauce by placing it in a bowl set over the steaming pasta pot. And for Blue Cheese and Broccoli Sauce, you do cook the broccoli--by tossing it into the pot along with the pasta, but this is so efficient, who cares?
