Pasta party has been around for years but generally they involve serving a range of pastas ….and that can be a very enjoyable basis for a party. However if you want to turn up the fun …how about you make the pasta first. You can really expand the options if you include Asian style noodles have a look at this video of an Asian Noodle Master at work … that has to be fun.
If you don’t want to get your hands dirty (or sticky) there are pasta making machines and many can do both pasta and noodles.
There are hundreds of different pasta recipes on the internet so why not have the party people help with the sauces and the different pasta styles that you intend to create. Here are just a few ideas:
- Linguine with Creamy Shrimp Scampi
- Wild Mushroom Lasagna
- Chicken Penne with Cream and Asparagus
- Shrimp Fettuccine
- Ravioli with Spinach & ricotta
- Cannelloni with Spinach & Ricotta
- Singapore Noodles
- Chow Mein
Red wine goes best with any tomato & meat based pasta – while for chicken and cream go for a nice medium dry white. For Asian noodles try a dry or semi-sweet Verdelho or good beer goes well with most Asian meals.
