We are hosting a lunch at a nice italian restaurant the day after the wedding for family and out if town guests. we get salad, two pastas, chicken piccata, and dessert. which pasta dishes would you guys recommend for variety and neutrality?

Where are you? What region are you in? For instance, is seafood a big thing in your area? If so, maybe choose one pasta that highlights that.
Are kids coming?

I’d pick a simpler one with a tomato sauce (like Penne con Salsiccia or Capellini Pomodoro) and then a more interesting one, like one of the seafood options.

Bowtie Genovese would be my first pick! And then one of the red sauce ones… do you have any vegetarians? If so then maybe the Penne San Remo or Rigatoni Sorrentina.

Do you have any vegetarians in your group? I probably include one vegetarian option (unless that isn’t counted in your two).

The Bowtie Genovese and Penne San Remo for the vegetarians.

I’d do one option with meat and one without. Of the choices you provided, I’d do bowtie genovese and either rigatoni sorrentina or capellini pomodoro. The menu looks really yummy!

Rigatone Cardinale sounds fantastic to me, and pretty safe (though of course one of the pricier ones). I’d just stay away from the spicy ones and yes like PP have mentioned take into account if you have any children or vegetarians to provide for. The ones with only 2 ingredients listed sound a little boring in comparison to others but I’m sure they’re all delicious.

I would make sure you have one seafood free choice (i’m not allergic but I won’t eat it).
I’d eat any of the meat or meat free options on that list!

one with a red sauce and one with a white or pink sauce for variety? Meat would depend on whether there are any vegetarians.

So, there will be four kids but they are toddlers/infants who will have separate food. In terms of vegetarians: one vegan, 3 vegetarians. We may have separate meals for them prepared. Otherwise, do you guys think it is more important to have meat pasta or fish? This is a large city in the midwest
