This cookbook takes Italian favorites and shows you how to cook them in an electric slow cooker. The sections include: soups, sauces for pasta, risotto/polenta/grains, seafood, chicken/eggs/turkey, beef/veal/pork/lamb, vegetables, and desserts. The introductory information gives tips on how to make the most of your slow cooker - such as "Avoid unnecessary peeking." (p.7) There is also a segment called The Italian Pantry that lists ingredients common to Italian cooking.
Michele Scicolone has concocted some great recipes that are easy to make. It is great to have some new ideas for my slow cooker that so often sits unused in a cabinet. Most of the recipes are easy to make, which makes it good for any skill level. The recipes cover a wide variety of Italian cooking and I am surprised at how much can be done with a slow cooker.
