Presto Pasta #111

It's my turn to host this week's Presto Pasta Night Roundup, but first I want to thank Hillary of Chew on That for her second wonderful time as host. And a huge thanks to all who sent in their tasty dishes last week.

As for this week's entries...only a dozen, but each one is fabulous. I was drooling from the first to the last! So let's just get started so you can drool too.

Nic of Lemon & Cheese served up this Spaghetti Carbonara...see what I mean about drooling.

Sara of Cupcake Muffin made this quick and gorgeous Rotini with Asparagus in a Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.

Patsy of Friends, Family, Food shares this simple dish Linguine with Red Sauce...even sounds simple and looks fantastic.

Petra, Food Freak extraordinaire was kind enough to share this gorgeous dish...more drool factor...Penne with Sun Dried Tomatoes & Arugula.

Dharm, Dad, Baker & Chef was very inventive this week...Red, White & Green - a pasta flag to eat, no less.

Kitchenetta of Got No Milk is back from vacation with this stunning Fettuccine with Brussels Sprouts & Pine Nuts. I want some right now!

MsMeanie of Chocolate Chip Trips is a PPN first timer - welcome and thanks for sharing homemade whole wheat pasta with the rest of us.

Ferdzy of Seasonal Ontario Foods is back for the second week in a row...hoorah! And don't you love the name of this cute dish...fasta pasta salad. Now we have to wait patiently for her asparagus to really shoot up. I wonder what kind of pasta dish that will star in.

Marye of Baking Delights is back. She too, made some homemade fettuccine to go with her Easy Stroganof..lucky us.

Deborah of What's In My Kitchen tricked her mom. I said it...and her couscous tabbouleh was a big hit. So who will you trick with it?

Cook Katie, went to the local market (I do love the experience myself) and came home with ingredients for her Lemon Pepper Pasta. Thanks for sharing with us and when are we going back?

And finally it's my turn to share. I had planned on making chocolate pasta (it's a dessert from my latest cookbook find - Chocolate for Breakfast), and hopefully I'll get to it for next week's roundup over at Teczcape, but for now I'll share the heavenly dish of Sacchettini with Romesco sauce (from the same book) chocolate...not for breakfast either but absolutely heavenly.

Well that's it for this week and a big thank you to all the fabulous cooks for joining in the fun.

Next week Tigerfish of Teczcape will be our gracious host. Send your entries to her - tigerfish1101(at) yahoo(dot)com (dot)sg cc me ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com

And if you'd like to host a Presto Pasta Night Roundup yourself, just send me an email. There are still some open slots for June and lots of dates in the summer. What are you waiting's great fun and a fabulous way to get introduced to other awesome bloggers.

Thanks everyone for a truly wonderful roundup this week. Couldn't do it without you all!

Dharm is a champ with that Italian flag dish!
I am in America, Ruth, and I am cooking pasta almost every day, but I cannot hook my camera up to this computer, so I will only tell you that I did publish a recipe yesterday and it was a hit, but got no foto...

Ruth Daniels said...

Dharm is a champ and I do miss your dishes. Too bad about the camera.

Hillary said...

I just saw this roundup, thank you again for the shout out! All of these dishes do look drool worthy!! Nice job everyone.
