Rach is of course the queen of 30 minute meals, and now chef Fabio Viviani is joining in on the quick-cooking fun with his new cookbook called “Fabio's 30-Minute Italian.”
It features over 100 quick and easy recipes that you can make in just 30 minutes or less!

“The concept of quick cooking goes along with easy and simple pantry items,” says Fabio. “If you spend 30 minutes cooking but you’ve got to spend two hours at the grocery store, it kind of defeats the purpose!”
“So quick ingredients, reuse multiple ingredients across different dishes, getting your base ahead so you might have something for the next day… that’s kind of the ingenuity there in the kitchen.”
