Spicy Tomato Sauce from Giada de Laurentiis's Everyday Italian

Makes about 1 quart;

Serves 4 over a pound of pasta as a main course

The sauce known as all’arrabbiata—or “in the angry style”—is made with hot red pepper flakes (and sometimes fresh chilies for an extra kick). I like to use the briny elements of olives and capers and skip the fresh chilies, adding depth to the spiciness rather than just more heat. Perfect with penne or rigatoni.

   • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

   • 1 small onion, minced

   • 2 garlic cloves, minced

   • 1/2 cup pitted black olives, coarsely chopped

   • 2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed

   • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste

   • Generous pinch of dried crushed red pepper flakes

   • 1 28-ounce can crushed Italian tomatoes

In a large skillet, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. When almost smoking, add the onion and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the olives, capers, 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt, and red pepper flakes, and sauté for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and simmer until reduced slightly, about 20 minutes. Season the sauce with more salt to taste. (The sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cool, then cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium heat before using.)

I love this cookbook! The recipes are easy and extremely delicious, and Giada's light personality and fun approach come through the page. Growing up in an Italian-American family, these foods are both authentic and true to the true character of my native foods. This is my favorite cookbook by far!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "With its cover image of the fetching de Laurentiis wearing a low-cut top and its promise of easy, tasty Italian recipes, this cookbook is sure to draw in home cooks who don't know how to make a basic marinara sauce and want to be introduced them to the beauty and simplicity of Italian cuisine. Which is, of course, a good thing, but a shame, too, since this work lacks depth or meaning. Readers seeking a true introduction to the building blocks of Italian cooking would be worlds better off with one of Marcella Hazan's or Lidia Bastianich's early primers. What those who are lured in by the good looks and charm of de Laurentiis (granddaughter of film producer Dino and star of Food Network's Everyday Italian) will get is an unsophisticated but decent selection of Italian-American classics, from antipasto to pasta, meat dishes to desserts, including Clams Oreganata, Caprese Salad, Salsa all'Amatriciana, Fettucine Alfredo, Veal Marsala, Caponata and Chocolate Tiramisu. De Laurentiis provides an introduction to each dish, and her recipes are generally minimalist (there are no recipes for homemade pastas or stews that take a day to make). Though bursting with glamorous shots of a lovely looking author, this is a rather flat first effort." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , Charming, gorgeous, and extremely talented, Giada De Laurentiis is the star of Food Network's Everyday Italian. Viewers will also soon see her in the network's All-Star Thanksgiving special with Emeril Lagasse, Rachael Ray, and others; cohosting (with Mario Batali) the Italian Christmas special and a cross-country series; and starring in her own special from Italy. The reason for all this excitement? Beyond Giada's on-camera presence, it's her food: quick, simple, and bursting with the ripe, rich flavors that reflect the best of Italian home cooking. Giada is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef who's worked in some of L.A.'s finest restaurants, but she's also not afraid to use shortcuts and the occasional packaged ingredient. She makes it all look easy because it is, with such features as seven ways to transform red sauce, five variations on cutlets, four great uses for prosciutto, and more than 100 other dishes for speedy but special dinners. Filled with gorgeous photographs, this is the debut cookbook from a major new star.
