My favorite [of the cookbooks reviewed] is Cucina Rapida, a delicious discovery for lovers of Italian food.  Most of the recipes can be done in 30 minutes or less, and the flavors are forthright.  Ive cooked a lot from this book since it came out in early summer and have yet to be disappointed.  The recipe for Linguine with Shrimp, Spinach, and Lemon is bright-tasting, a memorable supper that I will make again for my family or for casual entertaining.
