    I vote #2, that sounds amazing!!!  I actually had a super similar dish at a wedding I went to this fall and it was really good.

    mackayk :  im vegetarian but can’t eat dairy (so basically, vegan) its usually ‘safer’ to go all in but that’s just my opinion!! and both options do sound yummy thanks for having it 🙂

    Normally I’d go with #1. But because it’s a winter wedding, I think the butternut squash will suit better (and it still sounds very good). I also really like the fact that it isn’t a brown butter sauce, because it sounds like it will be a little heartier. They say it’s one of their signature dishes – I wondered if you had asked them which dish is more popular, or seems better received?

    That ravioli sounds so good! I would choose that over the meat dishes in a hear beat!

    we offered crabcake, filet, and a version of your #1 choice at our wedding. the vegeterian option was a big hit with those who chose it.  well, all our food was.

    I would personally prefer #1, though I think #2 is the safer choice (a creamy cheese or squash ravioli is a very common vegetarian option).  #1 sounds more unique though and IMO tastier as I’m not big on creamy (heavier) pasta dishes.

    I’d happily eat both, but I think more people would like #2. 

    Or you could do a poll for your vegetarian guests and say that the winning entree will be the one at the wedding! Darling Husband and I settled a wedding cake flavor dispute that way.

    Another thing to think about is that #1 sounds gluten-free if needed and more easy to veganize than #2.

    When I was a vegetarian, I always appreciated non-pasta entrees.  It seems like we were always relegated to cheese or pumpkin ravioli.  In fact, my favorite event meal was a charity dinner that served a vegetable napoleon.  And #1 sounds like a more interesting flavor and texture profile to me.  Pureed squash and pasta and cheese sauce all just sound like the same texture and pretty bland to me.  It will probably have broader appeal to omnivores who don’t want the chicken dish, but I think the vegetarians would probably appreciate the napoleon more as a departure from the usual pasta.

    I love squash but ravioli is such a common veggie option. I’d rather the other one.

    Pesto has Parmesan in it which is made from calf rennet so number 1 isn’t actually vegetarian so I would go for number 2 x

    I would say #2. To me, it just sounds way better and more elegant for some reason. I think it’s a safer choice too (as in more people would probably like it)
