Hit a dead end with my Italian Menu for large crowd

Lotus7 | Oct 5, 2011 10:16 AM

Hi there,
I think i've overthought this menu and now i'm turned around and dizzy : ) I could use my fellow cooks' wise advice and suggestions.

i'm having a pumpkin painting party/dinner for approx 22 adults and 15 kids. I know I want to lay out a big antipasto platter with bruschetta (w/pesto and mushrooms). Main menu: Jamie Oliver's Hunter Chicken (making this day before), a big pot of polenta (Thomas Keller), a tomato salad with goat cheese and walnuts. Dessert will be store bought cupcakes and cookies.

I would like to add one additional pasta dish that all the kids AND adults will love. I think it should be creamy, and the key is that it's EASY to make. If i can make the sauce ahead of time that would be helpful as I have a 6 month old and 2 yr old and for some reason i've taken it upon myself to invite a ridiculous number of people (KIDS!!) : ) thank you in advance for helping me!
