    #2 sounds better to me, but I’d suggest doing something that could be made without dairy in case you encounter people who don’t/can’t eat cheese.

    I’d prefer #1, as I really don’t like butternut squash and it’s so often the vegeterian option these days! (I’m not a vegetarian but eat vegetarian about half the time for health reasons.)

    Do you think you’ll have any vegans?

    I can never say no to ravioli so #2 wins for me but both sound great.

    I would definitely do the ravioli. I’ve met a lot of vegetarians who are quite fussy about certain vegetables and may not love the idea of a vegetable bake. Pasta is almost always a winner.

    I personally would prefer #1 because I feel like squash or pumpkin ravioli is everywhere these days and I’m pretty meh about creamy pasta dishes (sage brown butter sauce maybe, but not creamy), but #2 likely has broader appeal (there’s a reason it’s everywhere).

    #1 sounds delicious to me! Hmm, I may have to make something like that this week.

    mackayk :  #1. Seems like squash ravioli is always the vegetarian option, so something a little different would be nice. Plus it just sounds really good. I had the same thought as a PP about the cheese though. You could ask the caterer if they can accommodate vegan as a special request for those who need it.

    #1 sounds like it’s has a better mix of starches and veggies. And sounds more filling to me!

    Hi, as a 20 year vegetarian I would go with #1! It’s so rare to have a nice vegetable dish at a social gathering!! Pasta is all too common! If I see pasta at a social event, I’ll maybe grab 2-3 pieces and instead stick to side vegetables/salads. I would also recommend making it vegan but having a cheese plate on the side. Also, keep in mind, pasta often has eggs in the dough.

    I’m floored that people would pick plain ass vegetables over pasta, but I’m a pretty hardcore carnivore haha. My pick would have been #2 lol.

    #2. Because there will probably be a salad and a vegetable side to the ravioli, and I wouldn’t want to necessarily eat vegetable after vegetable. And yes, I always order the vegetarian entrees.

    They both sound delicious. I’m not a vegetarian myself but I have several family members who are so I always make sure there great vegetarian choices & I prob eat vegetarian dishes myself 2-3 times per week. As long as you don’t have vegans or a vegetarian who is lactose intolerant, either would be lovely- I’d probably choose your vegetarian choice over the chicken dish and I eat chicken.

    #1 for me hands down. It sounds more flavorful to me, even if I could eat the ravioli it sounds heavy and bland.
