    I would love to eat #1 and im not even vegetarian but I think number 2 would appeal to more people since its pasta.

    I’m assuming number 1 will be made with vegetarian pesto? Most pesto isn’t suitable for vegetarians…

    Regardless, I’d pick the ravioli as goats cheese mings and seems to be the default vegetarian option where I am (as a veggie this irritates me, and as a veggie who loves pasta, I wish I lived somewhere where pasta was the default veg option lol). 

    I’m sure the caterers will be able to make a separate vegan dish if needed, where I am the B&G usually pick a meal and all the guests have the same meal. The caterer then does separate dishes for anyone with allergies etc who can’t have the meal the B&G chose.

    I’d prefer to eat the ravioli, just reading it off a menu. 

    That said if I could try both before choosing, I’d pick the tastier one.. as a host

    I think the ravioli is a more substantive choice, and when you have an event with drinking, a more carb-heavy option is a safer bet.  Plus it sounds really good!

    #1! It sounds soo good 🙂 I’ve had some really great vegetarian options at weddings, and I think the best ones are more vegetable-centric than pasta-centric. But both would be great!

    Our wedding reception was last weekend at a well known Italian restaurant in our area.  We served our meal family style and had 2 pasta choices, a ravioli and a vegetable primavera.  We also had roasted vegetables as one of our sides.  Because this restaurant was so well known for its pasta, I think we would have gotten the side eye had we not had any.  We didn’t have too many vegetarians and I did worry about them having the ravioli since that seems to be the de facto entree for vegetarians, but we got nothing but rave reviews.  And because we served it family style, non-vegetarians took the ravioli too.

    Also pesto usually has nuts in it so if thats a concern keep that in mind.

    mackayk :  As a vegetarian, I would prefer #2. It also seems more filling for me.

    I actually quite like vegetable Napoleon and often order it when I see it in a menu.  The butternut squash ravioli doesn’t seems as special to me or as filling.  The ravioli also seems more likely to go wrong when made for a crowd than the Napoleon.  Not that it would.  That’s just how I would think if I were the one making the decision.

    Vegetarian here.  #1, more items in it and we often get stuck with pasta (creamy or not) so it’s great to have something different!

    #1 sounds lovely! I think pasta sounds pretty boring only because I make it at home all the time 😜

    #1 for sure! I’m a vegetarian but I don’t love pasta. It’s nice to have a veg option that isn’t just pasta.
