Presto Pasta Nights #180: The Round Up

This week I am proud to host Presto Pasta Nights #180. Thank you so much for all your entries. We have a fantastic line up of pasta and noodle dishes from all around the world for you to try.

If I have left anyone out, please let me know and I will add you to the round up. So without further we go!

The first submission this week is Taco Twist Bake made by Debbi from Debbi does Dinner. It is fantastic when basic ingredients you've eaten over and over again are put together in a casserole and come out wonderfully, and even better when the dish comes back clean!

Next was Deb from Kahakai Kitchen with her very sexy Pasta with Browned Butter, Sage and Parmesan from Mark Bittman. Simple and quick with good quality ingredients is definitely sexy!

Tigerfish of Teczcape - an escape to food made this wonderful Korean Japchae. It looks so fresh and is a great way to use up those veggies from the garden.

Next we have Joanne at Eats Well With Others with her crunchy, no make that creamy Cold Peanut Noodles with Eggplant and Red Pepper. I definitely come down on the creamy side with peanut butter, but crunchy or creamy this dish looks fantastic.

Aparna from Apy Cooking! gave us her vegetarian Lasagna with Ricotta and Roasted Vegetable Sauce. I would never have thought of adding roasted veg to the tomato sauce in lasagne and this looks delicious.

Lime Cake, a PPN first timer joined us with her delicious Pasta All'Amatriciana. I, for one, am hoping we get many more pasta recipes from her in the future to drool over.

Andrea of Nummy Kitchen, another PPN first timer made this awesome sounding Creamy Asparagus Penne. She, like me, adores asparagus and now her kids do too, well maybe not adore, but they did finish their plates!

Julie from a Little Bit of Everything made Pasta Pan-Fried with Butternut Squash, Fried Sage, and Walnuts, a perfect dish for the chilly autumn weather that is starting to creep in.

Anu from Truth Personified sent in this delectable Veggie Fusillagna, combining lots of veggies and two sorts of pasta together.

Elizabeth from blog from OUR kitchen came with smoked salmon, dill and capers in spaghettini, she even smoked her own salmon on the BBQ and used it in this dish! It sounds amazing.

Abby from eat the right stuff added her beautiful Orecchiette with Pistachios. I love the colour combinations of the green and pink of the pistachios, with the red chilli and the pasta.

And this is my dish for this week is Tagliatelle with Mixed Seafood and Courgette.

I hope you enjoyed the round up Next week the lovely Abby of eat the right stuff will be hosting Presto Pasta Nights for the third time! So submit your dishes to her for the round up next Friday.
