Presto Pasta Night #158

It's another great roundup this week. Big thanks to all who shared - we even have two kitchens that shared two dishes each - and they're all awesome. So without more blabbing from me....

UPDATE: Somehow I missed this fantastic Fusilli with Roasted Vegetables and Mozarella from The Sweet Kitchen. Shame on me! We would have missed out on a very tasty dish. If there's anyone else out there that I missed, please resend the link to ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com.
Sondra of Gesund Geniessen joys PPN for the first time - and first in for the week as well. I do hope she'll be back for more. This time she shares a healthy Whole Wheat Pasta Casserole.
Kevin, my favorite Closet Cook on earth made a dish to really melt my heart...Meyer Lemon Pesto and Feta Pasta with Shrimp. I bet it melts your heart too.
Cynthia, The Kitchen Slave gives us, not one but two delicious dishes this week...this beautiful looking Spicy Mapo Tofu Noodle dish that I'll probably have to turn the heat down a notch - I'm such a wimp.
and this gorgeous Green Curry Seafood Fettuccine.
Judith of Think On It made a fantastic Easter lunch starring Artichoke Lasagna. The photo may not have turned out - everyone too interested in the eating, but it sounds delicious. I'm hoping to find little artichokes here to copy her. After all, they do say imitation is the best form of flattery.
Liz over at Couples Kitchen updated a recipe she posted a few years ago - lucky us. The Osso Bucco Pasta has me drooling.
Kirsten of From Kirsten's Kitchen to Yours finally found a pasta she can digest. Her Kale & Blue Cheese Pasta looks so healthy, we all should give it a try.
Graziana of Erbe en Cucina is very busy these days...but not too busy to send us a lovely Pasta alla Carbonara Vegetariana. Everything sounds wonderful in Italian.
Pam of Sidewalk Shoes is very organized...I'm envious. But even the most organized can end up having to be more spontaneous...and thus...Chicken, Cabbage & Bacon Pasta was born.
Cool Lassie at Pan Gravy Kadai Curry certainly knows what to do with leftovers. This Sauteed Asparagus with Chopped Rigatoni looks fantastic.
Katie, another of my favorite food bloggers, of Thyme for Cooking shares this Orzo with Green Garlic & Mascarpone. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I find some green garlic at the farmers market tomorrow.
My very good friend Val, at More Than Burnt Toast brings her version of a dish I've made from one of Josee di Stasi's cookbooks (they're both awesome). Which just shows how delightfully versatile this dish is...not to mention Val's gorgeous photo of Lemon Pasta with Asparagus and Shrimp which looks way prettier than mine.
Kait of Pots & Plots also shares two awesome dishes with us this week. You go girl!
Sesame Noodles with Shrimp & Vegetables
and Shrimp & Andouille Sausage Pasta with Four Cheese Rosa Sauce
Elizabeth of Blog from OUR Kitchen was worried she'd be too late with her Stuffed Manicotti from Scratch...but who could resist such a perfect dish.
Finally it's my turn to share. I found a new fave pesto...and that says alot, since I love trying collecting pesto recipes. This one is from Giada de Laurentiis' new cookbook Fusilli with Spicy Walnut & Arugula Pesto. I'll be using the pesto slathered on grilled goat cheese sandwiches tomorrow and it will be fantastic roasted on salmon or tilapia,.... add a little more oil and it becomes a tasty vinaigrette for salads.
Thanks again, everyone for all your tasty treats. Next week Daphne of More Than Words, is back, hosting for the third time! She always does a great job. Hope to see you there.

Please send lots of pastas her way. Just send an email to daphnesu16 (at) yahoo (dot) com and a cc to me ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com.

If you're interested in hosting a PPN later this summer, drop me a line. It's lots of fun and a great way to meet wonderful bloggers.

Who could ever choose from all of these delicious pasta dishes Ruth. Great round-up as always.

Elizabeth said...

This round-up is as wonderful as ever. Once again, there are so many dishes that I neeeeeeeeeed to try. (The kale and blue cheese is really calling to me.)

And thank you for including my "just-in-time-by-the-skin-of-my-teeth" post, Ruth. (Did I forget to attach a photo in my email to you? Sorry about that!)


Cynthia said...

The roundup looks great! Thanks for hosting once again Ruth! Your intro for each dish is always so perceptive and thoughtful =)

Cool Lassi(e) said...

All the entries are fabulous!I can't pick a favorite.

Joanne said...

Awesome round-up chica! I wish I had gotten my act together in time to participate. Lucky for me, there's always next week!

Katie Zeller said...

I bought shrimp yesterday - now I just have to decide which recipe to use.... They all look so good!

Judith in Umbria said...

Nice array once more, and I am getting inspired to do it again, but how is that possible when I can't eat pasta? What pain and frustration!
