What about just doing “first course- pasta with…” because after googling I’m not sure either….

first of all i am so jealous because Future Father-In-Law is giving me soo much sh*t for not doing this. probably because he has only ever been to italian weddings. he likes to forget that i’m not italian. i’d love to have it if money was no object…but it is.

anyways, in italian the pasta course would be referred to as “il primo piatto” which translates to the first plate (first course). entrees are “secondi” or second [course]. not that i’m suggesting making your menu in italian, but you could use the translations:


first course

second course


i think that would make total sense.

In Italy, the pasta course is just called the first course, and the meat is the second or main.  Maybe salad, first, main and dessert.

Sounds yummy although pasta is very filling so guests may or may not have room for anything served afterward. Call it a pasta course.

We’re doing this too (FI and I are both italian, so it’s a must-have!)… We’re calling it “first course” followed by “second course”… Exactly what pb and j said. If your guests aren’t familiar with this custom you could say “first course – penne vodka” or something along those lines.
