Hints for Hosting a Pasta Party
Pasta: Allow about 5-6 people per pound. You can cook in advance and store in refrigerator, then warm pasta in microwave or quick boil 2 minutes before serving. Some hosts have a gluten free choice.
Sauce: About ½ cup per person. Some serve meat sauce and have a vegetarian choice. Crock pots work great for a pasta party.
Drinks: We recommend water.
Sides: The runners will be assigned sides by class, usually bread, salad, fruit, or dessert.
Other items: Extra-large garbage bags, heavy dinner plates, large cups, napkins, plastic forks, soft butter for bread, parmesan cheese shaker, salad dressings, several serving utensils, multi plug in for cords
Your helpers can bring pasta, sauce, cut bread, fill water cups, etc. The runners will take their shoes off at your door. Most hosts hope for good weather and kids eat outside. Thanks so much for hosting!
