Commentary: The Italian Alternative

If your pasta dish is Baked Ziti… a perfect accompaniment would be Italian Meatballs. Meatballs are always a good choice… be sure to make them smaller than ones you would make for a family supper….. people want to sample lots of different foods and smaller foods items are preferred…

Meatballs can be defrosted in the morning of the party and simmered in tomato sauce. To free-up you and your oven and stove… put them in a crock pot. I’ve already published both of these recipes (see under label “Italian”).

You can serve a salad and fresh bread or garlic bread and you really have a nice offering for your guests. Having a larger crowd and want more variety?... you could add Chicken Parmigiano or even another pasta dish… this time with a creamy sauce… I have several recipes that I will post that may fit the bill.

Baked Ziti is what I would label as a “heavy” entrée… It has a strong bulky flavor. I would pair that entrée with others that are similar in texture and taste…. stick with either an Italian dish or add something plain… such as a carved meat.
