Joe Yonan is the renowned, award-winning dining editor of The Washington Post, and author of a phenomenal new cookbook that asks some of America’s most beloved chefs: What do you make at home? The result is a collection of simple, easy-to-make recipes — because who wants to spend hours at the stove on their day off, right? This highly comforting dish from star chef Mario Batali takes the idea of pasta, marinara sauce, basil and cheese and expertly spins them all together in one delicious bowl of tomato soup teeming with tender goat cheese gnudi.
