    I would say yes to salad or fruit in addition to the pasta. My votes are for everything but the orange chicken. I’m just not a fan. But that way you also have a red meat, a bird, sea food and a veggie.

    Random and off topic sorry, but: Did you find your other half and are getting married this fall ( I remember back a betrothal/courtship thread you started)?!

    I like orange chicken, I just can’t picture it as a pasta. I don’t care for shrimp, but it’d be nice to have a seafood option, and the other two sound great. 

    I also say yes to salad or fruit (salad more than fruit).

    Ah gotcha ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes! A girl can plan !

    I think a white sauce ( chicken or turkey alfredo), red sauce, and perhpas something with seafood would be great!

    And definitely salads!

    I’d say a pesto sauce, a rustic red sauce (think thick cut veggies), and maybe even a red and white sauce, or margharita sauce?

    I agree with keeping it with one bird, one red meat, and one seafood. That way the meat eaters have an option, especially with dietary needs/wants, and if you have any vegetarians, most of them eat seafood. And I would do more salad over fruit. Salad and pasta go well together.

    Pesto sauce with chicken sounds like a great addition to the list. Yes to the turkey alfredo with butternut squash and the cajun shrimp with bell peppers.  I think serving salad would pair well with pasta.  Something fresh to contrast with the pasta.

    For the record, most vegetarians DO NOT eat seafood. I vote for a pesto. So good!
