Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-8-Totem Pole Tortellini, Ladybug Salad, and a Purple Pasta Monster are just a few of the edible creations kids can help prepare that will tantalize the taste buds of young foodies. They will also learn fun facts about noodles such as that spaghetti lunghi con archetto measures up to four feet in length and can be used to create delicious Rapunzel Noodles. Sections of this cookbook are roughly organized by shape, e.g., "Twisted and Twirly," "Wheels and Whatever," etc., and the appealing format includes colorful graphic drawings and stick figures as well as scrumptious photographs of completed recipes sure to make children giggle and drool. Fun and simplicity are emphasized in this sure-to-become iconic cookbook that offers functional and edible dietary mainstays that the whole family will enjoy.-Kathryn Diman, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, MEα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Whoever thought there could be so many different types of pasta—and so many fun, creative ways to prepare and serve it? On the verso of the title page, as well as other places in the book, Barlow encourages adult-child cooperation in preparing the dishes. The American-style recipes range from the everyday to the elegant, and the six chapters are divided according to the class of pasta needed for the recipes. Most ingredients are readily available, and the recipes are simple to make, given the adult supervision. The subtitle of the book is quite telling; Barlow adds twists to dishes to indeed make them playful (making robots out of macaroni and pretzels, etc.). Zac Williams provides tantalizing color photographs of the prepared dishes, while Oliver’s humorous illustrations add levity and also information on each of the types of noodles used in each chapter. Pasta substitutions and an index are included (though a pronunciation guide for the various pastas would have been helpful). This fills a quirky niche in kids’ cookbooks. Grades 5-8. --J. B. Petty

Rarely does a cookbook make you smile with glee; but these Noodlemania recipes and photos will. Plus it makes you use your noodle by adding trivia, math facts and fun facts to many of the recipes that kids will like to read. The book opens with Super Stuffed Slugs. A four cheese manicotti dish, with a open mouth at one end and two sliced olives for eyes. Robot Bytes (Bites) mixes Kraft Mac and Cheese and seasoned breadcrumbs, places the cooked mac&cheese in a baking pan, refrigerates it for 4-6 hours, cuts the mac&cheese into circle and square shapes, bakes them, and decorates them with faces (olives, cherry tomatoes) and adds thin pretzel sticks for arms and legs. Somethin' Fishy mixes noodles, tuna, peas and cream of mushroom soup with smashed up Goldfish crackers. Gnome Home Pasta makes a little gnome home out of a hard boiled egg and a Roma tomato. Seahorse Salad mixes creste di galli shaped pasta with red and blue food coloring and 2 tbsp of vinegar to make a pasta salad with an aquatic theme. Purple Pasta Monster uses sauce and olives to make a scary but friendly bowl of pasta. There are so many pictures, ideas, and simple recipes; my favorite was Silly Sea Creatures, which uses hots dogs sliced lengthwise and curved at the top of 8-10 strands of long spaghetti. They look like the tentacles of a hot dog colored jellyfish. Okay, wait.. I change my mind. Totem Pole Tortellini are very cute and creative, as is the hot dog with its bottom splayed into eighths topping a bowl of pasta to look like an octopus.

I rented this book from the library and I didn't want to give it back! The Chicken Cordon Blue recipe was one of my favorites! I know these recipes are meant for kids but my boyfriend and I loved them!

What a fun cookbook! It takes classic noodle based recipes and makes them fun for kids to both help make and eat. The book is broken down into the different categories of noodle and even offers a dessert section! One of my favorite titles was "Green Stink Bugs" - a very simple presentation of cooked orrichette pasta with pesto sauce. But how much more fun is it to eat Green Stink Bugs than Orrichette with Pesto? Huh? Serve a simple salad on the side and you're ready to go!

The book has easy to follow directions and lots of fun facts along way - such as ladybugs are thought to bring good luck with the recipe for Little Ladybug Salad. There are loads of photos and some adorable illustrations. Many of the recipes could easily be followed by older children wishing to prepare dinner for the family.

There is nothing new or groundbreaking in the book but there is a whole world of FUN. Making food fun is half the battle in getting kids to eat things that are good for them. Noodlemania will help do that.

Noodlemania has so many fun ways to encourage children to eat their dinner! The book is really enjoyable to browse and has lots of creative ways to serve pasta that will really get your children’s (or anyone’s!) attention. The first recipe my kids said we “had” to try was the ladybug pasta salad. It was really easy to make since it only has a handful of ingredients, and the tomato and olive “ladybugs” look totally adorable sitting on top. (Just make sure to remove the toothpicks before eating!) The next one on our list is the Totem Pole Tortellini, which is served cold and is just co cute! I think it’s a great way to get my kids to eat some extra veggies. I also loved the handdrawn fonts and style in Noodlemania.
