Presto Pasta Night Roundup #207

It may be April Fool's Day, but this roundup is no joke!... just plain good fun, great food and... well check it out for yourselves. Thanks everyone for such awesome pastas. First in... Lana of Bibberche was a touch late for last week's roundup, but I'm so glad to have her start this week's with her Glorious Creamy Mushroom Pasta and her tale of Heidi like adventures. Girlichef has to face the fact that her "baby" isn't really a baby anymore... towering over her! So we all have to help her eat some delicious, comforting, Sour Cream Noodle Bake to accept it. Dhallie of Pud Blag ni Ako is a first time PPNer and shines with this very fresh Crab Pasta. Wish her uncle would show up at my door with fresh crab. Grazianna of Erbe in Cucina made some amazing looking Gnocci & Zucchini Skewers. Allysia, Happy Vegan is a first time PPNer (hope she comes back often) and shares a lovely Spaghetti with Swiss Chard Pesto - a perfect option when you can't find basil. Cindy of Hun...What's For Dinner? (and who hasn't heard that one?) is a first time PPNer too and shares a heavenly Spinach & Artichoke Mac 'n Cheese. Imagine - combining my favorite dip with comforting mac n cheese! Michelle, better known as Italian Mama Chef, knows the way to my heart... garlic, creamy cheesy sauce & broccoli. Check out this comforting Broccoli Ricotta Pasta. Tigerfish of Teczcape and one of my very favorite PPN regulars always shows up with something wonderful. This time it's Kale & Red Pepper Pasta Sauce. Claudia of Honey From Rock, is another favorite PPner of mine. Here she takes tuna casserole to a whole new & awesome level... Tuna Stuffed Pasta Shells. I always look forward to Kirsten of From Kirsten's Kitchen to Yours who always shares something wonderful and this time is no exception. Her Shrimp with Lemon, Feta & Orzo has me thinking maybe shrimp three times this week is not too much. Biren of Roti 'n Rice is back with a beautiful (she's a great photographer) and wonderful dish of Goma Dare Soba made from staples always on hand in her house. Tandy over at Lavender & Lime returns to the PPN table with a fantastic Asparagus & Artichoke Pasta. Spring is definitely in the air. Kim at Feed Me Seymour shares a dish with one of my very favorite cheeses - Brie... not very diet friendly, but hey... Brie & Bacon Bonanza. Deb of the wonderful Kahakai Kitchen shares not only an awesome Fresh Herb Pasta Salad but a lovely book and a great place to find renewal. Debbi Does Dinner hosted PPN a couple of weeks ago and adapted one of the dishes at her roundup... another reason I love doing PPN... all the potential to make so many dishes our own. Her healthy, creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta... Beth Anne of The Seventh Level of Boredom is back with a twist on a Jamie Oliver dish... Fresh Asian Noodle Salad. I love how adaptable Jamie's recipes are. Shu Han of Mummy, I Can Cook made the most amazing pesto for her Pan Fried Shrimp with Glass Noodles & Thai Basil & Cilantro Pesto. Now if only I could find enough Thai basil in this town! Perhaps I'll just grow my own. Krista, The Beet Reporter sent in this Mac 'n Cheese Pizza... don't turn your nose up like that. It sounds awesome. Last but not least, my very easy Creamy Garlic & Herb Shrimp Pasta. Another adaptation, this time from Kraft's What's Cooking Magazine. Next week, Allie of Yum in Tum will be hosting. Let her feel your love and send your PPN entries to bahpeanut (at)gmail (dot)com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com

So much wonderful pasta.... I need to start making pasta again, more than just occasionally, that is. Shrimp and pasta is always a great combo - and 3 times a weeks is just about right!
