Our special guest, ann romney, made a treat for us earlier. Now, stanley tucci is very passionate about food. His book, "the tucci cookbook" is on sale now. And it's packed with recipes he grew up on. It's my father's family. My mother's family. We should say congratulations. A little special moment kind of happened. Thank you. Do you know anything about this woman over here? I don't. But she seems to follow me around everywhere. She looks like my wife. But I don't know. Congratulations. Thank you very much. Congratulations. Thank you. We know you love food. You do foodie movies. And "the hunger games." That was about food, too. That's sort of a lack thereof. "Julie and julia." I loved it. Loved it. Thank you. But where did the love for food come from? "Big night." So many people here. I don't know. Tell me. Thank you. Where does the love of food come from? I think my butter is burning. Sorry. They burnt my welsh cakes, too. This show's a disaster. I'll tell you. The love of food came from my family. Came from growing up with -- this is really burning. Thank you. Whoa. It's fine. It's fine. Everything's fine. Every time -- I don't know. My plane almost goes down. Now, I'm going to catch on fire. Maybe somebody should -- should we get rid of this? I'll hold it. You never know what might happen. Wow. Anyway, whe were we? We should jump to the dishes. Butter on the stove. Put some butter on the stove. And then, not better anymore. This is a very simple dish. A pasta casserole. George's eating already. It's actually a little creamier, a little richer. And it's a great, really easy dish to make. Particularly, if you have kids. You make this pasta, any kind of pasta of your choice. Bow tie, zitti. And a purintina sauce. It's a great way to hide the vegetables. They have no idea. They only taste the sweetness. And tomato. And you cook that for an hour or so. And make the base, which is flour and what was butter. And some milk. You can use lactose-free milk. Right? And then, you're going to put it all together. Am I supposed to do this? I'm afraid of burning something. We're going to take this right here. And we're going to put this into here. Okay? Into the sauce. Or into the pasta. All right. And then, what we're going to do is this is all going to get sort of mixed up in here. You can use your hands, right? I would use my hands. I'll use anybody's hands. It doesn't matter. We're going to put the sauce. We want to use this on the bottom. A little on the bottom so it doesn't stick. You can use olive oil on the bottom so it doesn't stick. Olive oil as much as possible, i think. I agree. We're going to throw this in. Kids go crazy for this dish. My kids beg me to make it. It's everything you love. Cheese and pasta. Really right. And this is, actually, escroll, that you can put in. If they're really afraid of the green, don't put it in. And you have a meat dish. Steak oreganoto. You price is it and pound it and cook it up quickly. All these recipes, in case we didn't get to all of them, are online so you can get to them. And the butter won't explode in your home. So much easier there. Goodmorningamerica.Com on yahoo! We'll be right back. Stanley tucci, thank you very much. Thank you. warren
