How to Host A Homemade Italian Pasta Party

Invite your friends over for a pasta-making party! Make pasta and sauce from scratch for a fun activity and then eat your own creations for dinner! Recipe4Living has just the recipes you need for an authentic Italian Pasta Party!

This week in RSVP: You're Invited we're going to do things a little differently. Instead of the usual appetizers, side dishes, beverages, etc. our sections consist of homemade pastas, sauces, all-in-one dishes and desserts. Why? Because that's simply all you need for this fun Italian Pasta Party! Invite your guests over before dinner time so you can make the pasta and sauce together!

Presentation Pointers: 1. Choose your pasta and sauce before the party and organize a list of tasks to hand out to your guests when they arrive.

2.  Some recipes for pasta may require a drying rack, make sure you have enough room on your counter or table to dry your pasta in a clean place.

3. Prepare large serving bowls for both the pasta and the sauce. That way, each guest can take as much or as little of each as they want!
