Presto Pasta Nights Round Up

This is my second time at hosting Presto Pasta Nights and I am hoping that my second attempt at getting all the posts listed will look a little bit better.

Janet who blogs on over at The Taste Space started the challenge off with her recipe for Sea Weeds and Greens Salad (Kelp Noodles with Wakame and Radish Sprouts). I have tried radish sprouts but have never come across Kelp Noodles and so will have to keep my eyes peeled.
Stash of The Spamwise Chronicles has cooked Penne With Olives, Heirloom Tomatoes and Herbs. His minimalistic approach to cooking means you can have this meal on the table in less that half an hour.
Johanna from the Green Gourmet Giraffe has made a Meaty Cauliflower and Walnut Lasagne. This is a great vegetarian meal perfect for Meatless Mondays.
Joanne from Eats Well With Others made Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce. I love anything with avocado and this dish I am told will give you superpowers!
Gay, who is hosting next week, blogs as A Scientist in the Kitchen. She has made Quick and Easy Bell Peppers and Squid Stirfry With Spaghetti. This is a dish I could tuck in to with ease.
Graziana who hails from Sicilyblogs over at Erbe in Cucina (Cooking with Herbs) has made Spaghetti with Sorrel and Basil Pesto. I have some blood sorrel growing in my garden so this is great inspiration, grazie tante.
Elly, from elly says opa! Made Pumpkin Penne with Arugula, Mushrooms and Romano. Elly prefers her pumpkin sweet, but says this is a great savoury way to enjoy this vegetable.
Ruth, the founder of Presto Pasta Nights, blogs over at Once Upon A Feast. She made Tangy, Spicy Shrimp and Chorizo Pasta. These are two ingredients that I think marry very well together.
I submitted two recipes to this week’s presto pasta nights – one for my 500th post! Take a look at my duck egg ravioli with exotic mushroom sauce

  2. Great roundup. Thanks for doing such a super hosting job. All the recipes look wonderful, but I think I’ll have to start with Joanne’s creamy avocado sauce. Big THANK YOU! to all the cooks.

    Sonsothunder – only “voting” to be done is with a fork 😉
