So, I'm making Chicken Francese and Penne alla Vodka for Chrismas dinner. Do you have any ideas for appetizers and sides?

I might do fresh mozzerella and brushetta as an appetizer but its something I always do. Just trying to mix it up. As for sides, I'm not sure, usually thats a meal in itself but I want more choices for Christmas. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

  • anti-pasta- tomato and cucumber salad even just a fresh salad with mixed greens wal-nut cranberries feta and a vinaigrette...fresh fruit trays, veggie platters... I love stuffed mushrooms-we use bread crumbs feta and crab meat.

  • Italian Green beans - it's basically green beans and onion tossed with a vinagrette and crumbled bacon. There's a bunch of recipes online for it, though I haven't used an actual recipe for it in years.

  • cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto or maybe sliced apples and pears with a selection of cheeses (brie, parmesan, sharp cheddar)
