Casual Italian Dinner Party Question

Reester | Nov 30, 201410:13 AM     26

Hello, I'm part of a rotating dinner party club. It's my turn to host in January. There will be 8 adults and 6-7 kids in attendance. Kids' ages range from 18 months - 14 years.

Here is what I'm thinking for the adults:

1. Baked Shrimp Scampi appetizer
2. Lasagna
3. Green Italian Salad
4. Bread

My question: I don't think the lasagna will feed 8 adults plus 7 kids. Would you make a tray of ziti (simpler flavors), order pizza for the kids, or make two lasagnas?

Also, any wine suggestions or comments on my menu appreciated.

Thank you.
