Hello! I'm planning a graduation party for my daughter and we've invited 100 guests to celebrate with us in the backyard. I'd like to make all of the following, but I'm not sure how much to make of each. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
stuffed mushrooms & cold antipasto platters to start ...
penne al pesto
green beans & small potatoes in butter
split chicken breasts in marsala sauce
(I was going to make sausage & peppers, but thinking about canning this idea ...)
ice cream cake
- I know this sounds like a lot of food, but we've got some big eaters and this type of "Italian House Party" is what we do :) ... thanks, again!
This is not a lot of food, but it is a lot of choices, which makes for both more work and more leftovers, here are my suggestions:
lasagne- make 80 servings, cut into 100 pieces
eggplant parm- about 50 servings
penne al pesto- about 10 pounds dry
I would definitely add bread and either a salad or a second green vegetable. Maybe a selection of cookies and brownies with the cake.
