    I’m a vegetarian and I LOVE both.  Particularly the eggplant.  However, I’m not sure that every vegetarian would love it.  I think maybe the pasta is the safer option.

    As a former veg, I’d probably rather the eggplant, but both options sound delicious!

    Ahh! I don’t want to vote because both are YUMMY!!! I personally love heavy Italian food anyday/anytime of the year… however just thinking that the Pasta Primavera in garlic and oil would be very appropriate for your summer wedding if that is at all a concern…

    My Fiance is vegetarian so we eat vegetarian food a lot. I would say they both sound delicious but Pasta Primavera is the safer choice Some people don’t like eggplant, or if they do, they only like it prepared certain ways.

    I’m not vegetarian, but I’ve heard from vegetarian friends that it can get annoying to be served the same meal at every wedding (pasta & veggies), so I voted for eggplant!

    eggplant is tasty, but i voted for the pasta primavera (I’m a vegetarian) because eggplant at banquet dinners is often hit-or-miss.  if it’s not cooked correctly (or if it sits under a heat lamp too long) eggplant can get really rubbery and gross.  if it’s done well its delicious, but I’ve had too many experiences with poorly cooked rubbery eggplant to recommend it for a large event.  (though i order it at restaurants a lot when the food is made-to-order for your table)

    I vote eggplant too.  Most veggie dishes I’ve seen are pasta, so a change would be nice.  Even though it’s breaded, it probably won’t be as heavy as pasta.

    I’m a vegetarian and I don’t like eggplant, but I would be happy and fine with either.

    I chose the pasta primavera over the eggplant because I HATE eggplant. If that was on the list as the veggie choice and I was a veggie I would simply not eat. The pasta primavera covers all bases with pasta and veggies without worrying about a specific taste like eggplant or another veggie.

    I’m a vegetarian. I love eggplant, but a lot of people won’t touch the stuff, so I voted primavera. You are more likely to please more people that way.

    Have you tasted the Italian food at your vendors? I am having a large Italian wedding without any italian food because our venue is not italian and their sauces really aren’t that good. You can not serve italian people bad italian food, they will talk about it for years.

    If they are both good I would vote for the eggplant, I love eggplant rollatini. Pasta primavera is not as easy to screw up since an alfredo sauce won’t taste that bad even it it’s not the greatest. So if you can’t taste them I would suggest going with the pasta.

    I don’t like eggplant…but I voted for it!  Here is why:  I very much dislike alfredo sauce…or any white creamy sauce.  I would push the eggplant aside and have plain pasta with tomato sauce.

    are there any other veggie options that they can prepare? the only reason I say that is because pasta and eggplant are always served at weddings.  If those are the only options they recommend for you then i’d go with the pasta, but they are pretty bland options compared to the non veggie options…could you ask them to substitute a meat entree with portobella mushroom or tofu? that way if there was say a chicken parmesean entree on their menu, you could ask them if they could to tofu parmesean?

    sorry this was semi-long but being a vegetarian, we did this for our wedding and they happily obliged!…you don’t have to stick to pasta or eggplant…just use what they already have on the menu and substitute…sometimes it makes for a WAY better option…
