Presto Pasta Night #278

It is the height of summer north of the Equator and it's been hot, hot, hot.  So I'm not surprised that the Presto Pasta Night Roundups of late have been short.  Too hot to cook, too much sun to call us all outdoors... or cooling off in air conditioned movie theaters... just saying....  So a very special "Thank You" to the three troopers who did share their droolingly delicious pastas.

First in Janet of The Taste Space did create this very summery, absolutely gorgeous Mango and Snap Pea Noodle dish that's doesn't heat up the kitchen too much.
It's been a while since Claire of Chez Cayenne brought us a dish, so I'm glad she shared this wonderful summer plate of Thai Curry Rice Noodles and Tofu. It's also quick to whip up  without too much time over a hot stove.
Then Kirsten of From Kirsten's Kitchen to Yours, another PPN regular of old shared an awesome vegan "Dirty" Pesto with Conchiglie and Sun-dried Tomatoes.  Now even vegans can enjoy one of my very favorite "sauces" - pesto!
And that's it for this week.   Even I stayed out of the kitchen.  Better luck next week.  I'll be hosting again and hopefully the weather will break, we'll all get back into our usual rhythm ... which means lots of pasta... and we'll all be sharing right here.    If you have a pasta dish you'd like to share, just write about it, mention and link to Presto Pasta Nights and email me your link by next Thursday to ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com.  If you don't have a blog, but would love to share your pasta dish with us, just email me the recipe and I'll post it for you.

I have actually gravitated to pasta sduring the summer.. weird, eh? The end of summer tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini and basil just screams pasta in all its forms. :-)
Thanks for hosting again, Ruth. :-)
