Presto Pasta Night #287 & Three to Go

Next week, Simona of Briciole will be hosting for the NINTH time!  You can send your perfect (or not so perfect) pasta and story to her at simosite (at) mac (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday for the roundup on Friday.  

If you were paying attention at the title of this post, you're wondering what "and three to go" means.  If you didn't read the title, at least I have your attention now.... just kidding.    After over five years, and what will be 290 roundups hosted by close to 100 charming hosts and too many recipes to count, it's time to call it a day.   

On November 16th I'll be hosting the last roundup and I hope to see lots of you there.  For those who have enjoyed being a part of this over the years (I started it in 2007) I'd love to hear about your relationship with us... how you discovered Presto Pasta Night, the blogging friends you've made through those weekly parties and maybe your favorite dish.

Dear Ruth, I am sad to read about your decision, though I totally understand it. Such an accomplishment! Over five years of weekly collections of pasta recipes: imagine if it were a book, it would be quite a tome. Even more honored to be a host this week. I just announced it:

I definitely have mixed emotions - PPN is almost as old... and as loved as my grandson, so it's hard to let go. But, it's time to move on and find a new fun project. Now I just have to think of one ;-)

Thanks for being such a great supporter in sharing recipes and in hosting so many roundups.

What a pity! :( I will miss this event. That said, I know you will start another new and fun project soon. Good luck!

Now, let me continue my write up for this week's PPN.

Thank you once again.
