Book Trailer


“Domenica Marchetti’s The Glorious Pasta of Italy is a mouthwatering ode to the traditional mainstay of Italian cuisine. Her recipes are simple but sublime, and cover regional specialties, family favorites, and modern interpretations.”
– Fine Cooking

“Domenica Marchetti’s latest tome makes a fine reference…. She offers more than 100 recipes categorized by use, such as pasta in soups, pasta with sauce, baked pasta, classic dishes and more.”
– La Cucina Italiana

“From fresh vs. dried to matching shapes with sauces, a beautiful new book tells you how to make the most delicious bowl of pasta.”
– Oprah.com

“Delving into The Glorious Pasta of Italy you’ll find gorgeous recipes for pastas—classic, modern, regional, and reinvented. There are sauces and doughs to mix and match (think Saffron Pasta with Lamb Ragu), warming pastas in soups, cheesy pastas baked al forno (hello, Lasagne di Crespelle with Truffled Mushrooms), weekend showstoppers, and quick pastas for those nights when time is not on your side (BLT Bucatini).”

“Sure, we probably don’t need another pasta cookbook. But The Glorious Pasta of Italy byDomenica Marchetti is pretty hard to pass up — and we have a lot of Italian cookbooks in our library.”
– LA Weekly

“In The Glorious Pasta of Italy, Domenica Marchetti shares her passion with you. Her recipes for my favorite food — pasta — are unpretentious, genuine, and mouthwatering. Brava!”
– Giuliano Hazan, author, Giuliano Hazan’s Thirty Minute Pasta.

“Domenica has captured the heart and soul of true Italian pasta. Simple but not made easy solely for the American public like so many pasta books before. Simple from centuries of cooking the same dish until it is perfected. Now all of us at home have the wonderful chance to share these delectable treats with our friends and family. My early edition has scores of dog-eared pages. I can’t wait. I suggest you don’t either.”
– Michael Chiarello, chef/owner Bottega restaurant, Food Network host, and vintner Chiarello Family Vineyards

“I am passionate about pasta and would adore to eat it every day of my life. Preparing the homemade pastas in this book makes me feel proud, like an Italian nonna, and the dried pastas will enrich my weekday evenings.”
– Cathy Whims, chef owner, Nostrana restaurant

“Every now and then there’s a cookbook that becomes part of the family treasure, holding more memories than the sterling silver, to be passed through the generations. Years from now grandchildren will refer to the dates and notes in the margins and marvel over the recipes. That is my prediction for Domenica Marchetti’s Glorious Pasta of Italy.”
