Dressing up a spaghetti dinner for a holiday party

jspragins | Dec 19, 2013 03:53 AM

Hi. I'm having a sit down dinner on Sunday nite for a bunch of friends and their college age children. The tomato sauce I've made is to die for as is the gorgeous tablescape I have planned. I like the idea of serving this comfort food right before Christmas...and it features sauce from our own tomatoes.

Anyway I'm struggling with how to dress up the dinner. Should I serve a different shape pasta? Serve salad as a separate course after the pasta? What about another side dish? Or maybe an appetizer course? Thanks for any suggestions and also would love recipe suggestions for an updated not too rich salad.
