Presto Pasta Night #163 The Roundup

When I told my Honey about the computer and internet gremlins who attacked The Comfy Cook and put a halt to this week's Presto Pasta Night, he reminded me that, since the first PPN back in March of 2007, we've never missed a week. Like the mailmen of old, neither sleet nor rain, nor moves from Toronto to Halifax, nor birth of grandbabies have stopped the weekly pasta roundups.'s a quicky version (I apologize for not doing my usual commentary, but I thought you'd all want to just dig in) and I hope that any of you who entered and don't see your tasty treat here will send me the link and I'll keep adding to the roll.

Daphne of More Than Words shared this Minced Meat Noodles.
Debbi of Debbi Does Dinner shared a delicious Cheese Ravioli with a Creamy Red Pepper Sauce.
Helen of Fuss Free Flavours brought this wonderful Spicy Lentil & Cabbage Spaghetti.
Joanne of Eats Well With Others found another great way to serve fiddleheads with her Mac 'n Cheese with Roasted Pork, goat cheese, rosemary & fiddleheads.
Kevin, my favorite Closet Cooking foodie also used fiddleheads in his Fiddlehead Carbonara.
Toni of New Veginnings made a lovely Lemon Pasta with Kale, Chickpeas & Tomatoes.
Jennifer of Cook, Eat, Play, Repeat - don't you just love the name! - shared this Fusilli Bucati with Tomato & Pancetta.
Reeni of Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice made a favorite of mine - Italian Wedding Soup.
Bellini Valli of More Thank Burnt Toast taught me something new with her Grilled Chicken & Pasta Fonduta with Tomatoes - check it out.
Abby who always Eats The Right Stuff, brought this to the table - Asparagus Orzotto.
Kirsten of From Kirsten's Kitchen to Yours took us to Sicily with this Broccoli & Pasta dish.
Haalo who Cooks Almost Anything brings a new meaning to mac 'n cheese with her Maccheroni & Smoked Provolina.
Tonya of A La Graham had me drooling with this Pasta and Smothered Onion Sauce.
Elizabeth of Gramma's Cookin' made a lovely Tomato Herb Pasta.
Claudia of Honey From Rock shared a "what not to do" but I think her Cannelloni alla Madonita turned out beautifully.
It seems like we had pasta lots this week, but this one was definitely a keeper - Spinach & Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells.
Fortunately for the rest of us, Chaya, The Comfy Cook and this week's real host, made this delicious Mushroom Fettuccine with Cheese Sauce & Smoked Salmon early in the week before her computer and internet malfunctioned.
If I've missed anyone, please send me your link and I'll add it to the roundup.

Jen - this is the first time I've seen pasta recipes with fiddleheads - will you be back in Canada in time for the short season?

Joanne, Daphne, Debbi - my husband also said we couldn't go a week without pasta!

Darn those computer gremlins! It happens to the best of us at one time or another. This is a delicious and diverse carb-fest to tempt my tummy! As always! Thanks for including me.
