Friday Night: Pasta Party with Friends

Pasta Party (small)

I don’t know about you….but it’s been kind of a boring week!  One day it’s nice, the next day it looks like it could snow again.  I decided we needed a little excitement as we moved into the weekend.

Invite friends over for a Pasta Party – all you need is some good wine, some fresh pasta and a few good recipes to give your guests a lovely evening!

Fresh pasta is much lighter and tender in texture than dried pasta.  If you have the time – it makes a huge difference in your recipes.  Click here for tips on making fresh pasta from Williams Sonoma.  I think you should serve a buffet of 3-4 different pastas, so that people can taste a few.  Serve up a light salad, some fresh bread – oh, and don’t forget to have fresh parmesan to grate on top of the pastas!

Here are some of my favorite pasta recipes – hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Buon Appetito!  Bon Appetit!  (Enjoy your Pasta Party!)
