Presto Pasta Nights # 106 - The round up

The best part about hosting? You get to meet so many bloggers from all over the globe - it is singularly and spectacularly enriching. Thanks Ruth, for giving me this wonderful opportunity of hosting PPN!

And thank you all, for all the wonderful, droolicious entries you sent me. Without further ado, here's what you all made:

Like the flavourful, oriental ramen? Do I hear a loud "yes"? Then head over to Tasty Treats where JZ has some Ramen Vegetable and Steak Stir fry

Food can be such a source of comfort....Gay of A Scientist in the Kitchen fights homesickness by cooking lovely dishes like this super Penne with Fresh vegetables!

Kitchenetta of Got No Milk makes this spicy Pasta alla Diavola that strikes just the right notes for her!

Want to fix a quick meal that doesn't compromise on taste? Take a look at the Chicken Patty Penne that Daphne of More Than Words put together.

Deb of Kahakai Kitchen tantalises the taste buds with this flavourful and zesty Linguine with Oyster Mushrooms and Gremolata.

Ever feel lost for ideas as to how to get your kids to eat some spinach? Head over to Supriya at Queen of my kitchen where she has made some Green Butterfly Pasta.

Melissa of Alosha's Kitchen beckons summer with this refreshing Insalata Caprese. Do you really want to wait for summer to try this one?!!

This one - Farfalle with Sausages, Tomatoes and Cream - that Pam of Sidewalk Shoes makes has easy and tasty written all over it! Don't believe me? Read it and head straight to the kitchen to make it!

That is not a meatball - believe it or not, it's broccoli!! The very prolific Priya of Priya's Easy and Tasty Recipes makes brocolli look like a meatball in her delicious Pasta in creamy tomato sauce with brocolli.

Nic of Lemon and Cheese makes this very flavourful Dijon Pasta Salad.

Abby of Eat the right stuff makes this super healthy and delicious Savoy Cabbage, Sun dried tomato, chilli and pine nut fettucelle - love the mix of colours in there!!

Craving a pasta that is spicy and flavourful? Check out the lovely Whole wheat linguine with seitan tofu gumbo that Singing Horse of The Peaceable Kingdom has dished out!

When I saw the lovely Chicken and Mushroom spaghetti in marinara sauce that my fellow Singaporean blogger, Mrs Ergul made, I had half a mind to invite myself over at her place!

Love mushrooms? Then check out the flavourful Egg and Mushroom Pasta that Sarah from What Smells So Good made.

Phanitha of Phanitha's Kichenette makes a classic Tomato Basil Spaghetti - simple and easy but very delicious all the same!

Macaroni and me, that is heaven on a plate. Asha of Aroma entices the tastebuds further by adding Italian sausage in this yummy Macaroni and Cheese with Italian Sausage casserole

I love pancetta, and just reading about the Rotini with Pancetta that Kait of Pots and Plots made transported me to culinary heaven.

Nothing to quite beat a cold pasta salad, right? Cham of Spice Club makes this very droolicious and creamy but easy to make Pasta Bean Salad!

And the classic - how can there be a pasta night without them meatballs?!! Sarah of Taste My Plate makes meatballs from scratch in her Italian Meatballs and Sauce with Penne

KC of Kits Chow makes this absolutely delicious, super garlicky Noodles with spinach skordalia - sounds absolutely yum to me!!

East meets west in this super spicy Farfalle with Chicken Curry that Poornima of Tasty Treats makes.

Pink is for girls? Well, trust me, even the boys are going to lick their plates clean with this Beet Almond Lemon Pasta that Yasmeen of Health Nut shares with us!

Who doesn't like gnocchi?!! I've never had the courage to make it at home, but Joanne of Eat Well With Others braves the process to make this delicious Potato Gnocchi with Peas, Prociuotto and Ricotta

Ruth - the brain behind Presto Pasta Nights - of Once Upon a Feast battles a bad cold to make this Pasta with Sweet Fennel Ssausages and Digby Scallops

I always get excited when I see some unique food pairings and so I loved reading the Spaghetti with spiced chickpeas that Mangocheeks of Allotment 2 Kitchen made.

When in the mood for something really tasty with very little effort, make this quintessential Italian comfort food - Spaghetti di mezzanotte that Sweet Kitchen shares with us!

Finally, I made Fettucine with Prawns in Creamy Coconut sauce.

Wow, isn't that one awesome variety we have here?! Thank you all once again for making it to PPN #106 - I really, really enjoyed hosting it.

PPN #107 that runs from March 28 - April 2 is being hosted by its founder, Ruth. Hope to see you there!!
('s Ruth's birthday tomorrow!)
