“Finally, Odette Williams gives pasta the Simple Cake treatment! Three base doughs are all you need to embark on a delicious choose-your-own-adventure of sauces and toppings, and yes, store-bought pasta lovers can hang too.

“I really love this book. It’s so thoughtful but also so clever and funny. In Simple Pasta, Odette Williams goes beyond just providing you with a blueprint to making pasta at home. She removes any of the fussiness that one tends to encounter when making pasta from scratch and instead transports you to her charming and exceptionally delicious world.

“Pasta deliciously portrayed in all its rustic elegance.”—Stanley Tucci, host of Searching for Italy

“It’s rare to see a guide to all things pasta that makes the process so effortless without dumbing it down. Odette gets to the primal, soulful, dreamy heart of one of the world’s greatest culinary traditions, transporting and teaching from start to finish. You hold in your hands a new essential.”—Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, coauthors of The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion & Cooking Manual

The book will certainly be the gateway to countless evenings with friends and family around a bowl of freshly made pasta. For the novice and the seasoned cook alike, Odette proves with welcoming arms that pasta is an opportunity for creativity and whimsy.”—Pati Jinich, chef, author, and television host

“In this stellar outing, Williams’s chatty anecdotes are just as delightful as the recipes and handy tips. This is a must-have for pasta enthusiasts.”Publishers Weekly
