PPN #104 Roundup

I have mentioned many times before how much I love Presto Pasta Nights. It is such a fun event where all you need to do to participate is create a pasta dish. How easy and fun is that? Ruth is such a great hostess and every week she brings us together for a pasta celebration. I am honored to be the host for this magnificent event’s third year kick off.
