    I like the first option much better. I think the pasta bar might be a little messy and also very heavy for your guests (you wouldn’t want anyone to get sleepy).

    I picked your first option because I am not a fan of pasta.

    Can you do option 1 with a pasta addition?  That would be ideal if you could!  I don’t think the red sauce/dress is as much as a concern over versatility (not everyone is a pasta eater – but, on the other hand, a lot of people LOVE pasta).  You really need to think about your guest list and what their preferences are… I’ve seen a pasta station done really well and be the hit of the reception before.

     I am a huge carb addict so of course I’m going for pasta! However, it limits your menu. What if you did carving stations and some sort of pasta, like a short pasta with a sauce alraedy on it instead of one of the potatoes (by the way, L-O-V-E the idea of a mashed potato bar).

     As a person who doesn’t really eat red meat I can honestly say (even though I love carbs) having the meat and potatoes option may just work better for your guests. Even for people like me who don’t eat meat there are still options. If people don’t eat pasta they’re left with nothing.

     Good luck deciding!

    I chose the pasta because I don’t like eating meat when it’s just by itself, (like a carving station).  I can only really eat it if it’s made in some sort of sauce or disguised as something, (i.e. chicken wellington, fajitas, turkey burgers, etc)

    Pasta Pasta Pasta!  I am excited just reading about that.

    Granted, I adore pasta and am also not a huge meat person.

    Option 1, mainly becuase I don’t really like pasta.

    I LOVE pasta and option number 2 sounds amazing!  I do agree with the PPs though that if you want to focus on pasta, make sure you have an option for the non-pasta eaters.

    i love pasta, but i would choose option 1. maybe you can add in one pasta station? also, if you go with pasta, i would stick with penne or some other shape. linguine/spaghetti/etc. can be very messy!

    I eat pasta for dinner every day so pasta gets my vote!

    I absolutely love pasta and we eat it usually two to three times a week but I would rather have option 1.  I also love all the foods in option 1 though.  I do agree that option 1 leaves more options and that pasta can potentially get messy.

    I think a pasta option should be made available for vegetarians. Just making them eat sides as a meal isn’t really fair.

    As a meat-eater myself, I loooooove option #1 though (but also love pasta. I just really, really love mashed potatoes!)
