What else goes well with spaghetti dinner?

Instead of a traditional Christmas dinner, we're going more Italian style... we're doing spaghetti dinner with homemade sauce and meatballs, garlic bread, caesar salad, tossed salad.. what else would go well with dinner? We're serving 15-20.. hmm..

  • mmmmm love the fresh mozzerella and sliced tomatoes idea. Also, you could do more than one pasta option. Instead of just spaghetti you could throw in some lasagna or even something with alfredo. We did a rehearsal dinner once with just different types of lasagna (regular, veggie, chicken). Or you could do different noodles and different sauces. Like Spaghetti, fettucini, ravioli, etc then the sauces would be, marinara, meat sauce, alfredo, pesto. So many fun options with Italian food! Have a great dinner....sounds yummy :)

  • I would do a flour less chocolate cake or a cheese cake for dessert as well as tiramisu.

    A nice after dinner coffee service.

  • stuffed mushrooms, Italian-style green beans, baked onions, and maybe some pesto and alfredo on the side for the bread.
