Thanks to Karen for this one: Barilla has put together a cookbook of pasta recipes from celebrities. This frightened me a little, frankly, because what if Ashley Judd just eats two strands of spaghetti sprayed with butter-flavored Pam, or something? But it’s okay, because then they had Mario Batali and Giada De Laurentiis work on the recipes. (And even though Batali wears bright orange Crocs and De Laurentiis is the Food Network’s answer to porn, they’re real chefs, so the recipes should be palatable.)
Anyway, you can download the whole cookbook here, and for every download, Barilla will donate a dollar to America’s Second Harvest to help feed the needy. You even get to choose whether they donate to the national campaign or to your local area.
Even if you don’t want the cookbook, your download is a contribution to charity. So go download it. You can delete it afterwards if it’s lousy.
