need ideas for authentic italian for a crowd

redgirl | Jan 14, 201111:40 AM     24

i have to make a large amount of some italian dish(es) for a large crowd for a school affair. the dish has to really represent italian cuisine (vs. just some pasta with something thrown in) .
i'd love some ideas.

i was thinking of the following:
Pesto
Turkey meatballs and pasta
cannolini
pasta with italian sausage and greens
baked ziti
proscutto and melon (wrapped)
chicken Cacciatore - with chicken thighs
fusili with shrimp and arugula

and just how hard to make (espec. in quantity) are rice balls?

thanks.
