With flavours bursting from the simplest ingredients, authentic Italian pasta dishes can make home cooking truly sensational.

In this definitive collection, Diane Seed shares the one hundred best sauce recipes she has encountered in 40 years of living, eating and cooking in Italy. Infinitely varied, it includes specialities from regions across Italy and classic recipes we've come to love that are both delicious and economical, plus a few extra-special dishes that are perfect for occasions.

What the critics say

Diane Seed is one of the few foreigners to take Italian food to her heart. She has a very big knowledge of it and in this she has written about pasta sauces thoroughly
- Antonio Carluccio

To talk of pasta, the essence of the family, is like telling the story of the people and Seed, with her sensitivity for the food and for Italian culture, is one of its great interpreters
- Alfonso Iaccarino, 2-Michelin-starred chef and owner, Ristorante Don Alfonso
