Editorial Reviews


This is a great cookbook that is well indexed, making it extremely easy to locate recipes both by main ingredient and name. This is quick, healthy cooking at its best and most delicious. (Shirley Reis Kliatt 1999-11-01)

The layout of the book makes a lot of sense ... the colors and graphics are downright appetizing. (Carole Gainesborough Culinary Trends 2000-12-01)

From the Inside Flap

Quick and Easy Meals in 15 to 45 Minutes.

Dana McCauley, co-author of Last Dinner on the Titanic and contributor to Canadian Living, Elm Street and Homemaker's, has put together a collection of fabulous dishes born of her love affair with noodles. Using her expert knowledge of food and ingredients, McCauley incorporates the flavours of Asia, Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East into her recipes with ingredients that are readily available in most Canadian supermarkets. All the recipes, including Mango and Rice Noodle Salad in Lettuce Cups, Peas and Potatoes with Orecchiette, Spinach Noodles with Spicy Green Curry and Asparagus, Tarragon and Lemon Fettuccine, are fast and easy to prepare -- 45 of these recipes can be made in 15 minutes or less! -- they suit the lifestyles of people who must eat on the run but who don't want to sacrifice taste, quality or nutrition. Noodles Express is also perfect for the occasional vegetarian -- those of us who want to eat less meat, but are bored with pasta and tomato sauce. This is quick, healthy cooking at its most delicious and ingenious. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This might be my favorite cookbook. There are other books on my shelves that are more elegant, but, let's face it, I only break them out when family or friends visit. On a daily basis, I need something that I can bring to the table fast.
I have tried well over a dozen recipes from this book, and every single one has worked. Some of them have become staples for my family. As an amateur foodie, I like this book because the author is so creative with her pasta ideas: most of them are recipes I have not seen the likes of anywhere else. It also allows me to share my love of noodles with my wife, who has an unfortunate aversion to marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. Oh, yeah, and all the recipes are vegetarian, which is also a major plus in our house.
If you like creative dishes, and you like pasta, buy this book. You will be a happier person for it.
