Pasta and Noodles Inspiration

thymetobake | Feb 21, 2013 06:49 AM

A couple of years ago, hubby had a health scare with high blood pressure and some other stuff. Since then he's been working out three days a week and it has really made a difference.

After 2 years, he tells me last week that he really enjoys pasta on the nights that he works out at the gym. Oh, really, I didn't know that!

So I've been prowling the web trying to find new ideas for pasta. Before now we really haven't been big pasta eaters. Just the occasional angel hair with meat or meatless sauce, pesto sauce, or spicy sausage with onions and peppers. Also the occasional asian noodle dish.

I'm looking for a cookbook that has some innovative and unusual noodle/pasta preparations.

What are your favorites?

On Amazon I'm considering these two so far:

The Big Book of Noodles

Easy Asian Noodles

I'm not against Italian cookbooks. I have one or two but so many are tomato or cream/cheese centered. Nothing wrong with that but we don't want tomato pasta 3 times a week. I'm open to books from any part of the world if you know of any.
