Presto Pasta Night #231

I am delighted to be hosting Presto Pasta Night #231 today and have spent a great week reading through all the entries. It's wonderful to see how much pasta is loved all over the world- this week I have had entries from Canada, UK, South Africa... pasta unites us all! 

Now on to the round up:

First in was this Autumn Pasta with Borlotti Beans, Cavolo Nero, Girolles, and Crispy Pancetta from Abby at Eat the Right Stuff.  A very seasonal dish!

Next we have 'Truly Tender Meatballs and Spaghetti' from Val at More Than Burnt Toast. As she says, this looks like perfect comfort food!

Tandy from Lavender & Lime gave us this recipe for Pasta with prawns - interesting colour contrast between the sauce and the pasta: 


Gay from A Scientist in the Kitchen cooked up Broccoli, Mushroom and Pepper over pasta- a good way of sneaking in some fresh veg:

Emma from Kitchen Goddess (in training!) sent in Spaghetti Puttenemma (Emma's Spaghetti Puttenesca). This looks like a perfect get-home-from-work-quick-and-tasty-pasta dish:

Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes made Gino D'Campo's Tagliatelle al pesto e yogurt. I love Gino and this looks delicious too!

Joanne of Eats Well with Others has combined a delicious mix of flavours in her Pasta with Ricotta, Roasted Tomatoes, Figs and Arugula:

The founder of Presto Pasta Nights, Ruth, sent in this recipe from her blog Recipes from Every Kitchen. I often get fresh beetroot in my veg box and never know what to do with the beet greens- I do now!

And here is my Spinach & Ricotta ravioli dish again:

I look forward to trying some of these recipes- thank you to everyone who participated. I hope you enjoyed this week's PPN as much as I did. Thanks Ruth for letting me host and for keeping this going!

Next week Tandy of Lavender & Lime is hosting for the second time. Send your entries to lavenderandlimeblog (at) gmail (dot)com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by next Thursday, September 22.
