The directions [in Cucina Rapida] are clear and simple and the results are delicious.  In testing some of the recipes from Cucina Rapida I found that Wright lived up to his promises.  The garlic and parsley shrimp was incredibly easy, took less than 30 minutes and provided one of the best meals my family has enjoyed in some time.
