Romesco Pasta for Presto Pasta Night

Just a very quick reminder that I'm hosting this week's Presto Pasta Night. Don't forget to send me your tasty pasta treats by tomorrow night so I can add them to the roundup. Email me ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com.

Tonight I made a really special dish that took no time at all....Sacchettini with Romesco Sauce and Broccoli. The sauce comes from my new favorite cookbook...Chocolate for Breakfast word...AWESOME ...and then some! The spicy, nutty sauce was a perfect match to the little stuffed pouches of pasta and the last of my broccoli. I'll be using this version of the sauce often. Besides having a fantastic taste...all that roasted nutty goodness, just the right amount of heat from two kinds of paprika, not to mention, roasted and raw garlic, wine vinegar and really good olive oil to compliment the sweet red bell peppers and ripe takes 15 minutes to roast the nuts and garlic and five minutes in the food processor!

Perhaps next week I'll make the chocolate pasta dessert from the same book.

And if you're interested in hosting a Presto Pasta Night Roundup, send me a line. There are still spots open in June and July.
