Presto Pasta Nights #204: Round Up

I have not been well in the past 48 hours hence regular readers may be wondering where the rest of my Le Manoir series has got to – I’ll be publishing the garden post tomorrow with the all important patisserie course review early next week.

Tonight though I’ve pulled myself from wallowing under a blanket on the sofa to bring you the round up for Presto Pasta Nights #204 which I am hosting this week for Ruth at Once Upon a Feast. I must apologise for not having visited and commented on all of the individual posts yet but will do so over the next couple of days when hopefully I will be fighting fit.

On with the round up….

Catching Up With The Clarkes: A mish mash of Nigella’s Penne Alla Vodka and her Penne All’Amatriciana

This one was my favourite – I think it’s really clever how she’s made it look like a picture in a restaurant!

And the other entries, in no particular order are…

The Seventh Level of Boredom: Loaf-a-roni


Pictures of a Princess: Spring Pasta Primavera


Allotment 2 Kitchen: Cumin Cauliflower Pasta Salad


Ruth at Once Upon a Feast: Farfalle with Chicken Pollo & Mushrooms with Creamy Sherry Sauce

    Oooh, all of these dishes look very good. I love that Nigella Mac and Cheese and want to make that. I hope that you get well soon.

    The roundup looks amazing and thank you so much for being such a trooper. You’ve been a great host, especially given that you’re sick. Hopefully one of the pasta dishes will be easy enough for you to make and enjoy. Rest up. You deserve it.
