Can You Believe It - Presto Pasta Night Turns Three

Where does the time go? It is truly hard to believe that I started Presto Pasta Nights three years ago on a whim. I thought, hey if others could do roundups, why not me. I never expected it to last. I hoped I wouldn't look like an idiot and be the only one sending in a pasta dish.

Within a month of starting PPN, I had to dismantle a home we lived in for 17 years in Toronto (and it was so much easier to hide things in the basement than to actually determine if we needed to) and pack what we did treasure for the move to Halifax so we could be close to a brand new grandson.

Three years later, (do you think Boaz will lend me his birthday hat?) ...

Boaz has a brother (who is already over a year old!)
And Presto Pasta Night hasn't just survived that upheaval. It's thrived!!! And I couldn't have done it without you!

A HUMONGOUS and heart-felt thanks to all of you who've played along with me over the years and sent in tons of absolutely fantastic pasta dishes. And a HUGE thanks to all the wonderful guest hosts who've helped out along the way.

So bring your party best...or your most comforting (pyjamas & slippers, in front of the TV)... something new and exciting...or... your all time favorite noodle dish and be part of the fun. Just send me your entries by Thursday night so we can all enjoy some pasta on Friday. Just mention Presto Pasta nights and link to it with in your email to ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com. And don't forget to tell your friends to join in too!

Martha, I do hope you read this. Please email me the link to your post so I can include it in the roundup. Unless, of course I misunderstood and you're just planning on checking out the roundup.

Ruth, I have my party hat on and I am ready to go! Hope there is a nice wine chilling :)

And what kind of party would it be without a little red, a little white ...wine to go with the pasta.

Thanks for sharing and joining in the fun.
