Presto Pasta Night #200!

Would you believe that it is Presto Pasta Night 200?   That is nearly 4 years of a pasta round up every friday night!  I wonder how many dishes that is in total?

I feel this post should be accompanied by a fanfare and fireworks!  Lots of entries this week, and I am posting a very quick run through!  I am sorry it is such a whizz through, it is late thursday evening in the UK, and I have mismanaged my diary and PPN co-incides with my having to hand in course work for my photography course tomorrow.  I had hoped to write abut two different carbonara recipes, but it will have to keep for next week’s PPN.

First up is Abby from Eat the Right Stuff and a PPN regular with a tagliatelle carbonara.

Kasha Varniskes, from  Claire at Chez Cayenne.  Kasha is buckwheat and this looks very healthy and tasty.

That is it.   I’ll add any more until 8pm UK time tomorrow.  Thanks for taking part – I will try to get round all your blogs and comment this weekend!  I never learn to do it as the  entries come in!
