For Dad’s bday we did a top-your-own pasta bar. It was really fun and I loooove customizing dinner with a group. Mom made everything and the rest of us just reaped the benefits.
We started with an antipasto which is actually Dad’s signature dish.
The pasta bar started with cheese tortellini in a light cream sauce. Then the toppings were all separate and allowed perfect customization.
We had grilled chicken tenders.
We had carrots, zucchini, and some tomatoes, onions, with a little pesto.
We also had peapods, artichokes, and capers.
It was really good. I had mine with zucchini, chicken, and onions with tomatoes. Topped with Parmesan.
The man of honor, had chicken, artichokes, capers, and some lemon.
We wrapped up with blueberry pie which was gone before I remembered to snap a pic.
Happy Birthday DAD!!
That antipasto looks INCREDIBLE. And now I’m craving pasta 🙂
