What sounds better for dinner?

BakeAholic | Jan 16, 200803:42 PM     13

I'm having a dinner party for five people tomorrow night. They are friends of my husband and I have never cooked for them before. I would like to know which dinner menu out of the two below you think sounds the best.

#1 Pasta Marguerite: Roma tomato sauce with fresh basil, mozzarella and parmesan
Mixed Salad with pine nuts, chevre, yellow and red cherry tomatoes and homemade
dressing.
Bakery Bread
Red Wine
Vanilla ice-cream with sabayon sauce and berries

#2 Homemade Chicken Pot Pies with a pastry crust
(chicken, carrots, celery, peas corn, onions...)
Mixed green salad
Beer
Chocolate Layer Cake

Also, if you would choose the pot pie, what else would you serve with it besides a salad?
