This week I'm hosting Presto Pasta Nights this week! So send me your pasta dishes to crabbymomofthree at comcast dot net with a copy to Ruth at Ruth at 4everykitchen dot com, and you'll be included in the round up next Friday, November 19th. Ruth is the beauty who started Presto Pasta Nights and she's been going strong for a LONG time!!
Now, onto the pasta!
Pizza meets pasta. Really? Can you think of anything better for dinner?
When I saw this, I knew it would be a hit. And it was. Really, what's not to love? Cheesy pasta covered in pepperoni?
I thought about adding some veggies but then I knew the kids wouldn't eat it. I would have loved some peppers and onions. The kids thought it was perfect the way it was! :-)
Don't forget to send me your pasta dishes by Sunday night and I'll post the round up! Send them to Crabbymomofthree at comcast dot net and also to Ruth at at 4everykitchen dot com.
