That Noodle Life

by Mike Le and Stephanie Le mixes Asian and Italian noodles dishes with an American twist. The book includes a mixture of recipes that are quick weeknight staples--like Chitarra al Tonno, or spaghetti with canned tuna, olives, and tomato--and more involved recipes, like Lasagna di Carnevale, which has meatballs tucked inside the layers of pasta. There are also chapters on different noodle preparations, from pho to ramen to yakisoba to plain spaghetti and meatballs. For some innovative twists on classics, try French Onion Mac and Cheese, the Smoky Bacon Kimchi Fried Udon, or the Super Creamy Chicken Miso Ramen. (Cookbook)
