Lidia’s A Pot, A Pan, and A Bowl Cookbook

This new cookbook by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and Tanya Matticchio Bastianich was recently published by Appetite by Random House.

This is the latest cookbook from beloved TV chef and best-selling author Lidia Bastianich shares more than 100 delicious Italian recipes that are both easy to make and will leave you with fewer dirty dishes.

Using just one (or two) pots, pans, or bowls, these homey dishes are quick and simple to prepare, requiring fewer steps and less stress, all without sacrificing any of the delicious flavors that are Lidia’s trademark.

Some of Lidia’s very favorite recipes include Spinach, Bread, and Ricotta Frittata; One-Pan Chicken and Eggplant Parmigiana; Roasted Squash and Carrot Salad with Chickpeas and Almonds; Penne with Cauliflower and Green Olive Pesto; Balsamic Chicken Stir-Fry; Skillet Lasagna; Braised Calamari with Olives and Peppers; Beer-Braised Beef Short Ribs; and Apple Cranberry Crumble. Many are old classics, others are new creations—and each one is guaranteed to satisfy.

Filled with personal stories, beautiful photographs, and even Lidia’s guide to cooking with the Instant Pot, Lidia’s a Pot, a Pan, and a Bowl is an essential collection for busy home cooks, and for anyone who wants to be transported to Italy with the least possible fuss and mess. Tutti a tavola a mangiare!

I made one tasty recipe from the book, the Roasted Mustard Salmon with Cabbage and Carrots on page 124.

You can get the cookbooks online from Indigo and other bookstores throughout the country.
