Presto Pasta Night #271

Now that I've totally confused everyone by inadvertently posting a roundup from June 2011!!! let's get real with the true Presto Pasta Night 271 roundup... which is awesome.  Thanks everyone for great contributions.   Please let me know if I somehow missed your entry so I can add it here.

First in... actually, she missed last week's somehow but there's no way I could keep HoneyB of The Life & Loves of Grumpy's HoneyBunch a secret.   I was licking my screen when I saw her Velvety Shrimp Pasta.
Our next early bird.. Sunday Graziana of Erbe in Cucina came up with this delicious Baked Tuna, Zucchini Pasta.  It's too hot to heat up our ovens this week, but I'm definitely saving this for the first cold spell... and some fresh zucchini from my daughter's garden.
On to Tigerfish of Teczcape - a frequent PPNer and one of my favorite, shares a perfect dish whether you're  suffering from the heat (serve it cold) or the cold (serve it hot)... Leaf Mustard Greens Noodle Salad.
Another awesome PPN regular is Joanne who always Eats Well With Others.  This time she shared a glorious Pasta with Garlic Scapes, Sugar Snap Peas and Ricotta.  A lovely dish for me, especially since my daughter's garden has lots of garlic scapes and peas.
Val of More Than Burnt Toast has been MIA from Presto Pasta Nights for a while, but her return is spectacular - lovely read (I'm jealous of her upcoming trip to Italy, her recent participation in a food writing workshop), gorgeous photo and an easy to follow recipe for Spinach Ricotta Gnocchi with Basil Butter.
Susan, The Well Seasoned Cook shared a great dish - and a new bean for me to try... Tri-colored Rotini with Lupin Beans and Vegetables. Doesn't it look wonderful!
Finally, one of my own - Scallops & Asparagus Orzo Risotto - very tasty indeed.
Thanks everyone for all the delicious dishes.  Don't forget that next week Riddhima of Culinary Vibes will be hosting for the first time.  Please send her your pastas by next Thursday - email riddhimac (at) gmail (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com.  

If you'd like to host a PPN Roundup. Just drop me a line to pick a date. July 20 & 27 as well as August 24 and beyond are available.  It's never to early to sign up!

Glad I was able to make PPN after many months of absence. Great round-up, Ruth. There is nothing so satisfying as pasta. Thanks for using your noodle to create this event.
