I'm Hosting (Long) Pasta Please in September

I am delighted to be hosting Pasta Please #9 in September 2013.  Pasta Please is a monthly blog event founded by Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes.  Each month there is a theme and I have chosen Long pasta.  That's right.  Spaghetti, fettuccine, tagliatelle, linguine, pappardelle, soba, rice noodles, udon, vermicilli.  Just to name a few.

Long pasta.  Softening and sliding into the pot.  Tangled in a messy heap on the plate.  Ready for a dollop of sauce.  Carefully arranged into birds nests.  Floating through soup like the tentacles of a sea monster.  Elegantly twirling around your fork.  Scooped up with chopsticks.  Shoveled into your mouth.  Slurped up noisily.  Flicking red sauce on your white shirt.  Dribbling broth down your chin.  Satisfying.  Comforting.  Fun.  Delicious.

I love long pasta.  Yet of all pastas, it is the one that most often leaves me feeling blank when faced with a packet.  I am hoping you will join in and send me some great ideas and inspiration.


How to join in:
  • Make a vegetarian dish using any sort of long pasta and post it on your blog
  • Link to this page and to Tinned Tomatoes in your post.
  • Please send only one entry per blog.
  • Use the Pasta Please logo in your post
  • Add your recipe to the Linky (below) by the 28th of September 2013.
I have posted the round up.

  1. What a wonderful blog event, Johanna! I'd love to participate! Quite exciting for me, since I haven't made pasta in ages! I'll try to make up some nice vegan dish with gluten-free long pasta. :)

  4. I will surely participate. I normally make a vegan puttanesca which my husband adores, but I may have to make something else with the other long pasta suggestions that you have offered. Its been a while since I've had soba for a start. Got me thinking now.

Thanks for dropping by. I love hearing from you. Please share your thoughts and questions. Annoyingly the spammers are bombarding me so I have turned on the pesky captcha code (refresh to find an easy one if you don't like the first one)
