Pasta fantastica!

Trying to be healthy and avoiding pasta? You don’t have to! New book Skinny Pasta is full of lighter interpretations of classic dishes that everyone can enjoy

Cook, recipe writer and food stylist, and author of new book Skinny Pasta, Julia Azzarello, sets the record straight on pasta: ‘Many who love pasta also fear it, but it is not fattening, nor is it inherently bad for you. Paired with the right sauce, pasta makes a healthy, well-balanced dish.’ And, with clever swaps and portion sizes, Azzarello has created a book in which each recipe is under 500 calories.

‘Meat is used in moderation, or as an addition. Likewise, cream, butter and cheese are limited – it is only when these foods are consumed in extreme levels that they are harmful,’ she explains. Azzarello reassures us that there are plenty of classic pasta main-course dishes that we can enjoy ‘without feeling as though you have used all your calories for a week in one sitting!’

Skinny Pasta is packed with colourful, delicious-looking dishes that make the most of seasonal produce and are also practical, easy to cook and less labour-intensive than the traditional Italian pasta dishes that nonna used to make. Chapters include Staples, Lunches, Salads, Soups, Fish and Meat Mains and Veggie Mains, plus there is everything you need to know about pasta shapes and sauces, equipment you may need and ingredients for your kitchen cupboard. There are also suggestions for gluten-, dairy- and egg-free alternatives; the versatility of pasta means these recipes can be enjoyed by everyone. As Azzarello says: ‘Life is too short not to eat pasta!’ We wholeheartedly agree.
