*Any ideas? We have company coming (it will be about 10 of us total) and I want to make something simple, yet memorable for dinner. I love Giada’s cooking show on food network, and am thinking of whipping up baked ziti, but with a twist…and one of my inlaws is bringing one of her beautiful, famous salads. I am thinking of making a pasta-less dish, like eggplant rolatini, and also have a meatfilled ziti dish as another choice. Is this too heavy, or should I make something lighter?
I also want to hand out recipe cards, with a menu, to make the night fun.
Tired of grilling out all of the time, although I thought of grilling some zucchini and other veggies (indoor grill) and providing some dipping sauces?
I just want to make sure my dishes aren’t too zany, and that everyone will like them (but want to do something a little unique…like a unique twist on a traditional italian dish)
Your ideas are appreciated. :)*
