- Antipasti: toasted bread with vegetable pate', toasted bread with caviar, devil's eggs, shrimp cocktail (Italian style -- shrimp in a ketchup, mayonnaise, whipping cream, and paprika sauce), bruschetta;
- Primi: 1) strascinati pasta (this is a typical fresh pasta from the Italian region of Puglia) with porcini mushroom sauce, 2) radiatori-shaped pasta (Gandolfo brand from Costco) with Sicilian pesto (I brought this from Italy. It was a delicious sauce with ricotta cheese, tomatoes, walnuts, and basil), 3) pear and cheese filled ravioli with a butter and sage sauce;
- Secondi: chicken saltimbocca with carrots and gatto' (potato casserole);
- Fruit and traditional Italian Christmas desserts (see picture below).
We ate for 3 and 1/2 hours. Yeah!!
I think everyone had a great time! Buon appetito!!
