Lidia Bastianich—doyenne of Italian cooking (Chicago Times)—makes Italian cooking easy for everyone with this new, beautifully designed, easy-to-use cookbook. Here are more than 100 homey, simple-to-prepare recipes that require fewer steps and fewer ingredients (not to mention fewer dirty pots and pans), without sacrificing any of their flavor.

These are just a few of the delectable dishes that fill this essential book of recipes:

  • Spinach, Bread, and Ricotta Frittata
  • One-Pan Chicken and Eggplant Parmigiana
