Presto Pasta Night Roundup #39

Next week we'll be hitting the big 4-0 and I hope to be coming up with a new image for Presto Pasta Nights to celebrate and, naturally to think of some over the top entry. In the meantime, we have another wonderful roundup filled with perfect pasta dishes. I'm sure you'll find many new "favorites" to add to your own collection.

First in this week is Astrid over at PreHeat. She's back with another healthier version of an old classic. This time it's Lasagna and it looks wonderful.

Jenni of Milk & Cookies shares the perfect reward for doing chores....Orecchietti with Eggplant Ragu. Hmmmm, what shall I tackle first?

Sarah of What Smells So Good? is a first timer and shares this "Camera-Shy Cannelloni". Unfortunately she forgot to take a photo. Oh well, perhaps you can take one for her when you try it out!

Ferdzy of Seasonal Ontario Foods is back with a wonderful dish - Hortopita - a Greek lasagna made with kale and Swiss chard and spinach that sounds absolutely dee-vine!

Gay, The Scientist in the Kitchen is back with her very own creation - Pad'll have to read her post to understand. I can't wait to whip up a plate or two.

Elly of Elly Says Opa is back with a quick (but perfect) dish of Cajun Creamy Shrimp Pasta before she heads off to spend time with family for Thanksgiving.

TBC of The Budding Cook is back with a picture perfect Pasta Salad. I see it on a summer picnic and a brunch dish any time of year.

Rachel, over at Tangerines Kitchen brings this colorful Baked Penne Pasta dish. I love it.

The Happy Cook from My Kitchen Treasures shares this yummy Spaghetti with Meatballs that definitely will bring out the kid in all of us.

Dharm of Dad, Chef & Baker made his son a special treat for his birthday...Stuffed Lumaconi. Happy Birthday and thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

Michelle the Greedy Gourmet is back too. She's got an awesome dish of Leeks & Mushrooms with egg noodles- and a secret ingredient I never would have thought of - honey! I'll be doing this one very soon.

Sara of I Like To Cook a frequent PPNer made this tasty Penne a la Vodka. One of my favorites. Now I have to go buy some vodka.

Katie of Thyme for Cooking is back with another wonderful story and a very unique Pumpkin Sage Lasagna.

First time PPNer, Eliza of Notes From My Food Diary shares this quick and lovely Tomato & Spinach Toss. I do hope we see you back here often, Eliza.

Haalo of Cook (Almost) Anything is a fantastic PPN regular and this time she shares some Fagottini Soup. I've bought them as sacchettini here...whatever you call them, they're delicious.

As for me, well I got my inspiration standing in front of the fridge for this Pasta with Chorizo, Mushrooms & Leeks.

Don't forget to join in the fun for next week and please visit the Presto Pasta Gang on Facebook.

As always...a very big thank you to all of you for playing along and visiting every week!!!

Katie, thanks and yes...the big four oh! I hope to see you there. As for the soup - 1/2 mashed sweet potato and some lime juice made it so tasty, I'm adding it to the original recipe.

Happy cook, have fun eating ;-)
