    Presto Pasta Nights no 259 -

    Its been my pleasure to host Presto Pasta Nights for this week. Ruth from Once Upon A Feast started this blogging event 5 years ago and once a week, bloggers send in their delicious Pasta recipes.
    Here is this weeks round up.
    First up we have Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe
     Johanna celebrated Easter with a big Family lunch. What better way to finish off this superb occasion with this very tasty Fettuccine Napolenta
    Next up, we have a post from Stash at The Spamwise Chronicles.  He has some beautiful photos on his blog. Those tomatoes certainly gets my taste buds moving. There is not many things nicer than roasted tomatoes...and they are the crowning glory on his "Carrot Pasta with Shitake Mushrooms, Spinach and Slow-Roasted Campari Tomatoes"
    Moving on we have Shelby from The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch. She has entered her Chicken Noodle Soup There's nothing better than Chicken Soup aka Jewish Penicillin. My Mother wasn't Jewish but every time we were ill we were spoon fed Chicken Soup. It worked almost all of the time...Shelby's version has me desperately wanting some. Comfort Food at it's best.
    Claire of Chez Cayenne has made Farfalle Salad with Asparagus Such a colourful salad. I love those little Farfalle Pasta Butterflies. Really cute and work well in a salad.
    Now we have Angela from Spinach Tiger with her Four Cheese Sweet Potato Lasagna She has taken the common old sweet potato and given it new heights, by turning it into Lasagna, and flavoured it with Four difference cheeses
    An finally we have my entry, I pinched this from another blog. (I have credited him in my blog)
    It was so delicious I had to share. We are at the end of the tomato season here in New Zealand and this is perfect to bring out the wonderful fresh flavour. Fresh Tomato Lasagna
    So Ruth thanks for the opportunity to share in this event. It has been fun
