Recipe Swap Roundup - Pasta Part 2

I love pasta. It's such a versatile ingredient, a blank slate for which there are endless possibilities. I know many others share my love so I figured we would revisit pasta as the theme for this recipe swap. It was another large turnout, which just goes to show you that people love pasta and can't get enough of it.

These are some seriously yummy-sounding pasta dishes. I dare you to scroll through this roundup and not find at least one dish you want to make.

Ally's Penne with Arugula in a Tomato Cream Sauce was a big hit at her house:

The Cooking Nurse was able to sneak eggplant past her husband with her Sicilian Eggplant Sauce:

The Cookaholic Wife was a little hesitant about the poached egg in her Pasta with Poached Eggs and Peas, but she enjoyed the sauce:

Jenna loved how well the balsamic vinegar married with the cream in her Chicken with a Balsamic, Mushroom Cream Sauce:

Dawn stepped in to help when one of the other swappers was unable to make her recipe for Tortellini with Creamy Tomato Sauce:

Melissa loves pasta and really enjoyed her Alfredo Stuffed Shells with Chicken & Artichokes, even if she had a mishap with making it ahead of time:

Heather lucked out and got a recipe for Crock-Pot Macaroni and Cheese that she had bookmarked to make:

Paige, a newcomer to the swap who also happens to be a friend of mine from high school, made Salmon Pesto Pasta:

Ammie had my recipe for Fettucine Carbonara with Bleu Cheese, Asparagus and Artichokes, which is rich and delicious:

Jaida isn't a fan of peppers and onions so she left those out of her Sausage Cacciatore, which was still delicious:

Carrie is another pasta lover and her Penne with Pistou really hit the spot:

Coleen loves non-red sauce versions of pasta dishes so she enjoyed the cheesy, fatty goodness of her White Cheese Chicken Lasagna:

Jey doesn't eat much pasta and loved how different her Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Rolls were from the ordinary recipes she's seen:

Lishie had fun making her Homemade Mushroom, Arugula, & Ricotta Ravioli with Garlic Basil Olive Oil:
