Presto Pasta Night Roundup #249

Last week's roundup wasn't even posted before Janet of The  Taste Space shared her awesome, vegan Rasta Pasta, that even a carnivore like me can enjoy with gusto.
Graziana of Erbe in Cucina always brings something new and wonderful to Presto Pasta Nights.  This time it's Gnocci with Nettles & Borage... neither of which I've ever cooked with, so something new for me to test.
Tigerfish of Teczcape is back with a perfect variation on, probably the best pasta dish for this time of year... especially since I'm sitting here with heavy socks and wooly sweater... Fresh Herbs & Chicken Macaroni Soup.  This one is definitely different to the one my mother used to make and I can't wait to try some.
Andrea of Nummy Kitchen really outdid herself...fresh pasta with Piri Piri Cream Sauce.  I love Piri Piri, that spicy Portuguese/Brazilian sauce and... well, obviously, I love pasta, so thanks for the combination.
Juli of Pictures of All My Princesses has really shown me up here.   I've been meaning to make some homemade pasta for weeks and never got the pasta maker out of the cupboard.  Along comes Juli and whips up these gorgeous, toasted homemade ravioli.   They look awesome and truly inspired.
Jamie of Cookin' with Moxie has me drooling with her Orecchiette with Mushrooms, Asparagus & Boursin... which is one of my favorite soft cheeses.  I can't wait to whip this one up.
It was a crazy week here and I never actually got to cook any pasta, but I did share the first one I ever posted back in 2005.  Pasta with Winter Greens, Pancetta & Mushrooms is still a favorite around here.   In fact, it's inspired me to start linking to my early pasta dishes over at Presto Pasta Nights.  Be sure to check them out.
Another week of fantastic roundups to try and an invitation to all of you for next  week.   Tandy of Lavender & Lime will be our wonderful host for the fourth time, I might add!  Send your entries to lavenderandlimeblog (at) gmail (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday February 9

Thank you Ruth for your kinda words. It's always such fun to try and come up with something new and then see it in the roundup at the end of the week.

What an awesome round-up, I see so many inspiring dishes I want to bookmark and try! How neat that you're a fan of piri piri sauce, I had never even heard of it until recently. So fun to try something new.

Thank you for hosting :)
