Amazon.com Review

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?

Color photos, taken by Warner's husband, are so sunlit that the food on every page looks like a cheerful feast. --Dana Jacobi

From Publishers Weekly

There is no need to sweat over a hot stove, Warner (All the Best Pasta Sauces; All the Best Pizza) says, when you can prepare simple yet often elegant pasta sauces that don't require cooking. To demonstrate, she presents 75 simple, no-cook sauce recipes. These sauces actually "cook" (or heat up) when tossed with freshly made hot pasta, ensuring that the home cook is out of the kitchen pronto. Cooks who favor a Mediterranean flair with their pasta will gravitate to such sauces as Tomato Sauce with Olives, Feta and Mint. The more adventurous might want to try Sesame Sauce with Roasted Red Peppers or the Smoked Salmon, Capers, and Dill Sauce. Some unexpected combinations are Pumpkin and Basil Sauce and Luscious Lemon and Mascarpone Sauce. The recipes are made inviting in the lush, serving-suggestion photographs provided by the author's husband, Drew Warner. This friendly book isn't for home chefs contemplating serious party fare; but it's ideal for cooks who are pressed for time and short on inspiration.

I have had and enjoyed this book since March of 2000 and have not had a bad dish yet - I've made almost every one and a lot of them many more than once.

I lost my original copy of this cook book in a house fire and was glad I could find it again.

I like this book for those nights when I know ahead of time I'm going to be crunched for time. I'm the kind of person who plans a week of meals at a time before grocery shopping, with an eye on what nights will be busy vs. when I'll have oodles of time. I also keep a pretty extensive pantry on hand. I think if those 2 things weren't true, this book would lose alot of its usefulness. But with the right ingredients around, there are some good quick meals in here.
A few things to be aware of:
- These recipes are LOADED with butter, oil, and fatty cheeses, typically half a stick of butter, 1/2 a cup of cheese to serve 4.
- There is a little bit of prep required before you boil the water, but it's light, like chopping a garlic clove or grating some cheese.
- Most of these recipes uses strong tasting ingredients, like raw chopped garlic, crushed red pepper, and basil. If you don't like these ingredients, you might not like a lot of these recipes.
So, with those caveats, I would recommend this book. I especially like the sauce made from riccotta cheese, bottled red peppers, basil, garlic and parmesan cheese. I typically serve these with boiled broccoli and quick frozen garlic bread, and dinner is ready in like 20 minutes.

No-cook doesn't mean raw or cold! These recipes are easy to make, flavorful and delicious. And FAST! This is just the book for a hot summer night's dinner. Or even when you want a quick dinner. There is a wide variety of flavors. When I first got this book I made four recipes in a week. My son loves the tuna (canned!) with lemon zest and juice with capers. I like the broccoli with blue cheese. Asparagus with orange and basil sauce is awesome! Ricotta cheese and roasted red peppers is a real pleaser. I used this book for dinner for two separate dinners with guests, and on both occasions, the guests went out and bought the book. I'm looking forward to making the Vodka-Spiked Tomato Sauce this weekend.

After years of cooking lovely, but-oh-so-hard-to-do, meals I got burnt out. Then for nearly 8 years I just snacked; I didn't want to even make a salad because that was too much bother. This is the cookbook (given to me by a well-meaning friend)that got me back to making delicious meals. They are easy, healthy, no-fuss and absolutely mouth-watering. I've made most of the recipes in the book and though I have my favorites, there aren't any that I didn't like or thought was too difficult. I'm buying a copy for a friend who has a boat and needs easy meals for a family of 4 that can be made in a tiny cabin kitchenette. This is the cookbook for her and I'm sure many others will enjoy it too.

My neighbor and friend received this book for Christmas and raved about it, promising to let me borrow it. She did....for two whole days then retrieved it. Seems she uses it several times weekly and could not do without it any longer. I searched a couple of local bookstores for it and also a cooking website to no avail. I'm so happy to have found it that I'm ordering one for myself and my sister. It's GREAT!

Best book of recipes I've found for truly good and nourishing meals that can be prepared in a jiffy. If you are vegetarian, it's a plus, there are many recipes that do not contain any meat, some using fish but mosly cheese and vegetables. Meat can be added to many of the recipes but they are excellent as they are. I have had the book for a long time but wanted it for my college-age grandson.

I have had and enjoyed this book since March of 2000 and have not had a bad dish yet - I've made almost every one and a lot of them many more than once. I can't count the number of copies I've sent to children, grandchildren and friends. I find when I put the bowl on the pot of water Joie sends me in all kinds of directions with ingredients - not only good tasting dishes, but so fun!
