Italian food & 5 year olds - help!

I need to make something for a function at my sons school, has to be Italian and there has to be a lot of it.  (I don't know exactly how much, it's about 3 or 4 classes worth, but it will be combined with other things being brought in obviously)

Any suggestions?  Spaghetti is boring, and little man hates it.

Lasagna, baked ravioli, baked ziti, or fettuccine alfredo.

Baked ziti feeds tons of people. Maybe make garlic bread with it.

liking the baked ideas - I'm into using the oven right now (it's cold!)

Have any good recipes by any chance?

stuffed ravioli would probably be a hit.

Stuffed shells are my all time favorite but I think that I would go with baked ziti as well.  Take a look at allrecipes they have some great ones.

Do a baked ziti - kids love it and it's easy and great for a crowd.

Caprese kabobs? Mozzarella, cherry tomato, pesto on it?

For the baked ravioli, if you're not going authentic, you can buy the ravioli in the frozen section, layer it with meat sauce and cheese and bake it.  It's really good, haha.  

Baked ziti is roughly the same, but you can mix it all together, throw some cheese on top and bake it.  Cook the noodles a little before you bake it, al dente.  They'll finish cooking in the sauce.  

You can also buy those huge aluminum bake pans from Walmart.  Then just toss them after they eat.
