    I voted yet, but that’s because I love asparagus! I think it would add nicely to your plating though.

    Your menu sounds delicious!!! Your question about asparagus…that is a hard one because if there was asparagus on my plate I would eat it and it would add something extra to the plates, it is not weird. But with your menu I would not miss having a vegetable with my entree at all because I also had a salad before my entree. And like you said with the entrees you have, they don’t normally come with a side veggie. I think guests would appreciate a veggie on the side but you absolutely don’t need to add it they would not miss it. Sorry if I did not help!

    I also like asparagus.  Is your caterer particularly Italian, or an Italian cuisine expert?  I hear ya about the salads at Italian restaurants.  But there’s more to Italian foodthan what is usually served at American Italian restaurants.  Maybe Ita;ian food really does involve asparagus.  Or if you ask you caterer, maybe you can come up with another vegetable that you like that is Italain.

    all i saw was "italian" and had to come in. YUM!

    We had the asparagus option, too, but said no because most of my FI’s family doesn’t like it. I love it personally, but only if it’s cooked right. It doesn’t hurt to have it as an option but it certainly isn’t necessary for what you are serving, either. 

    I’d rather skip asparagus and offer tiramisu! yum =]

    I voted yes, because I have seen it served at italian restaurants. I think I had it with Lemon Piccata before. Anyway, it is a great veggie to have, maybe not with lasagna but it should work with the Alfredo.

    My fiance is from Italy and we eat asparagus all the time. Broccoli or brocollini is also a very traditional side dish for Italian meals.

    I love asparagus! Since your menu is very carb heavy I would encourage you to offer it so its breaks up all the bread/pasta.

    Agreed – I say add it.  I’m Italian and we eat it all the time.
