Joie Warner's No Cook Pasta Sauces


Even though my husband and I live in the mountains of Southern California, summers can get quite toasty. The Santa Ana winds push the dry Mojave heat up the slopes, settling in around the mid-90's during the afternoon. Fortunately, the evenings chill down to a comfortable 70-degree range, just cool enough to think about eating again.

Joie Warner's No Cook Pasta Sauces

Joie Warner's No-Cook Pasta Sauces seems ideal for this type of weather—easy to make meals to eat al fresco, at room temperature, with but a pot of water to boil and a few ingredients to toss. Pasta is the earth-mother of comfort food, a perennial favorite, but one that too often in summer is served soggy with vinaigrette or gluey with mayonnaise. Not so in this book. These sauce recipes are designed to be true pasta entrees, using fresh herbs, rich olive oils, sharp cheeses and a host of perky pantry items to enhance the pasta without overwhelming it.

So this summer, if the temperatures have you baking at night or frying during the day, give yourself some comfort with a quick, tasty pasta meal from these samples and other recipes in Joie Warner's No-Cook Pasta Sauces. After all, no matter how hot it is, you still gotta eat, and no matter what the circumstance, you should always eat well.
