Could it be? Could it really be September already!?! Many are thinking about back to school, others are thinking about work and the pace picking up now that vacations are done... at least for summer. I, of course, am just looking at it as another month gone... true, but lots of opportunity for some awesome harvest at the market, the possible things I can make with that bounty...pasta sauce, anyone?...
Which leads me to this week's wonderful roundup of truly great pastas.
First in Stash at Spamworks... who if I wasn't happily married, I'd be beating down his door just for the lobster pasta.
Supriya of The Queen of My Kitchen is really thinking Autumn with this Pasta with Squash Sauce.
Nupur of UK Rasoi is here with a lovely dish of Pasta with Ricotta Cheese & Spinach which beautifully bridges the seasons. Last week, HoneyB of The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch hosted the PPN roundup. This week, she's a wonderful guest with a droolingly delicious Cheesy Orzo that she served as a side for Grumpy's steak. I'm thinking it would be great all by itself... which is saying alot for a carnivore. Mango Cheeks of Allotment2Kitchen shares this brilliant Baked Tomato Orzo. I really like that after the first few minutes, you just leave it alone for almost an hour... how stress free is that!
Graziana of Erbe in Cucina is back from vacation with this Stir Fry Noodle with Shrimp and Green Soy that has me intrigued... never saw green soy beans, but you know I'm going to keep my eyes out for them.
Tigerfish of Teczcape shares another new (at least to me) green... Leaf Mustard Greens & Shrimp Stirfry. Hope I can find some in Halifax.Juli of Pictures of all my Princesses will be hosting PPN next week, but now she shares a fantastic Taco Shell Pasta that little hands can help put together. Got to remember this one for my sous-chef Boaz, who's almost 5 and loves helping out in the kitchen. Claire of Chez Cayenne made this Vegan Mac 'n Cheese that looks delicious and could fool any non-vegan.And finally, my Hurricane Pasta (best served when in fact there IS no hurricane).Thanks everyone for sharing your pastas this week. I can't wait to try them. Next week Juli of Pictures of All My Princesses will be our host and I can't wait.
