April Hosting of Pasta Please: #4 Chilli edition

I was really disappointed to learn that a popular monthly food blogging event known as Presto Pasta Nights had come to an end, however when I learned that Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes was re-igniting this event under a new banner 'Pasta Please', I knew I wanted too not only support it, but be part of it.   So here I am, announcing that I will be hosting Pasta Please #4 April's edition.
For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis, will know that I am a chilli fanatic.  My blog documents loads of chilli specked recipes many with the addition of pasta, some of these were in the past submitted to Presto Pasta Nights such as Garlic Chilli Spiked Cauliflower PastaHome-made Chilli Gnocchi with CabbageCauliflower, Capers and Chilli Pasta, and Chilli Spiced Brussels Sprouts Pasta.  So it will not be a surprise to some of you that the theme for this month is chilli, a red hot spice that is available in many forms from flakes to paste.

Please join in with your mild, warming, tongue tingling, red hot or fiery chilli pasta creations. I really am looking forward to hosting and seeing what delightful pasta dishes you come up with, but if you feel a little stuck and need a little inspiration to get you motivated, then please check out some of these past Chilli Pasta dishes on my blog.  To participate, see details at the bottom of this post.    Also as my blog is 100% vegetarian it is very important that entries this month are suitable for vegetarians, otherwise they will not be included in the final write-up.
