They’re all here, foolproof versions of everyone’s favorite pasta dishes in a special limited-edition collector’s issue. Get the secrets to tested and perfected versions of Old-Fashioned Spaghetti and Meatballs (buttermilk-soaked bread is the key to meatballs with a creamy interior and pleasantly rich, tangy flavor), Quick Tomato Sauce (our full-flavored sauce takes only 15 minutes to prepare), Macaroni and Cheese Casserole (rich and boldly seasoned with eggs, onion, dry mustard, and Worcestershire sauce), Fettucine Alfredo (serve it in warm bowls to retain its ultra-creamy texture), Pasta Salad with Asparagus and Red Peppers (stick with lemon in the vinaigrette and let the vegetables cool before dressing them), Pad Thai (constant tossing while stir-frying the ingredients ensures even cooking), and Fresh Pasta without a Machine (our carefully formulated dough and rolling technique produce the best noodles we’ve ever tasted).
You’ll also get our picks for pasta cooking gear that beat competitors in rigorous testing and the best-tasting ingredients, along with invaluable tips for better, smarter cooking discovered during our (admittedly obsessive) recipe development process.
