Pasta for BloggerAid Changing the Face of Famine

Hard as it is to believe, Presto Pasta Nights hit the big 150 this week. And she looks better than ever as she ages...like fine wine and cheese, I guess. Don't forget to send your dishes to Susan The Well Seasoned Cook (with links of course) at thewellseasonedcook (at) yahoo (dot) com and cc me ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com

And the planets have collided to celebrate....the recipe is at the bottom of the post, but take a minute, please....

I'm proud to say I've been a member of BloggerAid Changing the Face of Famine (BACFF) for a long time. It's a wonderful family to be a part of, represented by food bloggers from around the world who want to make a difference in the area of world famine and reach out to help those less fortunate than we are. Banded by a mission of helping to make a change in a world where starvation affects such a profound number of people, BACFF raises money and awareness for the hungry in communities both at home and abroad.

Many of these bloggers (including me), have already put together and published a cookbook with proceeds going to the United Nations Friends of the World Food Program (Friends of WFP), specifically the School Meals. You can find out how to purchase your own copy here. 100% of the proceeds target children and education. There are several forums for BloggerAid members to discuss various topics and one forum is called Vew & Review where members can sign up to become part of a group that reviews cookbooks and posts their reviews both on the BloggerAid forum as well as on their own personal blogs. We've asked publishers, authors and agents to provide a review copy or two for our members to enjoy and write about. It's been wildly successful here in North America, but we're actually still looking for publishers in Europe and Asia to share some copies....but I digress.
The people at Random House Canada were kind enough to send me a copy of Pasta Et Cetera a la Distasio...okay, I begged! You can read my review here.
For the big PPN 150, I couldn't resist this simple and simply delicious Lemon Pasta. You will lick the plate clean, so make double portions!

So, so good! I'm bookmarking this for the very near future, maybe as soon as this weekend. Thanks for pointing up the recipe, Ruth!

I have a recipe for lemon flavoured pasta (ie: using lemon in the pasta itself to serve with a shrimp sauce) but this sounds MUCH more accessible, not to mention fabulous. Must buy lemons....

ejm, I do hope you plan on sharing your lemon pasta with Presto Pasta Nights. I'd love to make some.
