It's Friday and time to share the pasta dishes that I have received as contributions to edition #277 of Presto Pasta Nights, the popular event created by Ruth of Once Upon a Feast. For each contribution, I will give you the official information (author, blog name and post title) and a short quote or brief description — a teaser that invites you to follow the link to read the relevant post.
Sarah of La Cuisine de Sarah prepared Truffle & Mushroom Ravioli
A series on TV inspired "to dust off the old pasta machine. To honour its outing I decided to open the jar of truffle paste I had been saving."
Kathryn of Crafts and Creations with Kmom14 presents Pasta Alfredo
"The sauce has a bit of a nutty flavor from the nutmeg, a bit of tangy flavor from the lemon, and combined with the other ingredients is a filling main dish "comfort" food."
Valerie of A Canadian Foodie prepared Serbian Meatballs with the Best Ever Homemade Tomato Sauce — "A frozen package of my always-on-hand and used-to-enhance-so-many-dishes Best Ever Homemade Tomato Sauce was thrown in with the browned balls, a little cream was added" and wide, crimped pasta.
Pam of Sidewalk Shoes presents Penne with Zucchini and Mint
"It’s lovely. Simple. Fresh. Totally encompasses the eat what is in season now. It’s not a huge show stopper, it’s just simplicity at it’s best."
Ruth of Once Upon a Feast prepared Thai-style Chicken & Mushroom Udon Stir-fry
"I had a plan. Use udon noodles, beet greens and shrimp... this dish was so good my daughter said she had to "drink" the last of the sauce."
