Presto Pasta Nights #190 Round Up





Time for the Presto Pasta Nights Round up! It's actually quite dangerous for me to be compiling a list of pasta recipes like this! I so might be carb loading next week!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First up is Biren's Butternut Squash Fettucini.  This is an incredible fall dish!  Butternut flavored pasta topped with butternut squash and a delicious sauce! Yum!


Butternut Squash Fettuccini with Roasted Garlic - Roti n Rice

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A delicious pasta and sauce handed down from her mom.  Apparently there is much debate over the perfect sauce but she has successfully managed to create this heavenly looking dish!


Spaghetti Bolognaise - Eat the Right Stuff

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is a gorgeous fall inspired dish that is submitted to I Heart Cooking Club.  She tripled the garlic so I know I would love this!


Orzo with Sausage, Peppers and Tomatoes - Ms. Enplace

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is a beautiful creation combining shrimp and fruit that even her picky son will eat!  Sounds like a winner to me!


Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimps and Macedonian Fruit Compote - Culinary Flavors

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Asian inspired meal from Kristen uses simple ingredients to create a wonderful meal so scrumptious, that it even surprised her! 


Szechuan Noodles with Spicy Beef Sauce - Holy Cannoli Recipes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Heather shared this mouthwatering pasta dish and some tips from a restaurant she used to work at. You might be surprised!


Penne with Italian Sausage, Peppers and Onions - Girlichef

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The secret is in the fennel seeds in this tasty creation! Fools you into thinking there is sausage when it's really healthy ground turkey!  Brilliant!


Turkey Bolognese - Dana's Food for Thought

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a great meal to share with others!  New moms, grieving families or just someone you want to be nice to!  She says it travels well and is easy to fix. Plus is looks delicious!


Baked Italian Pasta - Giving Up On Perfect

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She married her husband thinking he was a whiz in the kitchen with this wonderful recipe! Little did she know that was the only recipe he knew!  At least it was a good one!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo - It's Better Everyday

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wow! This tasty dish from a woman who used to NOT like bacon!  Her pregnancy seemed to cure that!  Now she loves it!


Bacon and Broccoli Penne - It's Better Everyday

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is nothing like a quick and easy meal! I'll bet the kids love it too!

G'ma Goulash - Mom's Crazy Cooking

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another quick and easy recipe!  Nothing like a good cheesy pasta!


Easy Homemade Macaroni & Cheese - Mom's Crazy Cooking

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's a woman who makes soup often and her family loves it.  She particularly likes to make soup on the weekend to let it simmer long and slow!  I couldn't agree more!


Minestrone Soup - City Home/Country Home

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Christy got the inspiration for a vodka sauce from her grandmother but has developed her own style of infusing the vodka into the tomatoes!  How cool is that!


Spaghetti alla Vodka - Fudge Ripple

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is nothing better than a little carb action to get you out of a kitchen rut with nothing in the cupboards!




Macaroni and Cheese with Mushroom Pangrattato - Lime Cake

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

While 99% of the cream cheese recipes on the box are sweet, dessert dishes - this savory pasta meal turned out to be incredibly tasty! I know I want to try it!


Philly Spaghetti - Little Bit of Everything

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If doctors can't help the pain, then Joanne and I totally agree that a little pasta will do the trick!  I'm sure this would cure just about anything!


Pasta with Tomato - Blue Cheese Sauce - Eats Well With Others

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's a simple, mouthwatering dish with anything but a simple name!  It's not the name I'm interested in anyways, it's just this delicious pasta that catches my eye!  It does sound rather romantic though, doesn't it?


Orecchetti e Pepe e Pancetta e Cacio - Once Upon A Feast

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can't believe I never thought to put ranch in mac and cheese!  Sandra says that this is a complete hit with her son and he loves the leftovers! 



Ranch Macaroni and Cheese - Diary of a Stay at Home Mom/Full Bellies, Happy Kids

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She learned a new technique from a magazine for creating a wonderful sauce.  It's something that I will do too!  Don't you love the steam coming from this? I can almost smell it! 


Chili, Chicken & Feta Pasta - Sidewalk Shoes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What could be better than homemade butternut squash Gnocchi!  With the brilliant idea to infuse the taste of butternut squash in there and even a step by step account.  They look beautiful!

 

Butternut Squash Gnocchi alla Romana - More Than Burnt Toast

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's a meal that combines two of my favorite things, pizza and pasta!  What's not to love?!
