My First Dinner Party

Friday before Easter I told my mother I could make them dinner.  Them turned into 13 people and before I knew it I had a dinner party on my hands.  I decided to make everything vegetarian just to show mom, dad, grandma and grandpa that no meat can still be good.  All in all, there were 2 pastas, a salad, dinner rolls, my chocolate cake and a few other desserts.

  1. Ziti with Ricotta and Vegetables from The Cooking Chemist
  2. Vegetable Pasta with Miso Tahini Sauce from The Daily Garnish
  3. Kale Salad from Oh She Glows
  4. Fluffy Pull Apart Dinner Rolls from Oh She Glows
  5. Chocolate Celebration Cake from Sweetapolita

This was my second time making the kale salad but a first on everything else.  Oh how I love the lemon tahini dressing!
 The best looking pasta was the ricotta one.  It was pretty much devoured.
 And the miso sauce pasta looked a little bland...but the flavors were amazing.  It was my favorite.
Everyone's plates looked like this and I know at least a few went up for seconds  ;)
I counteracted the dinner with a huge dessert plate filled with chocolaty goodness.
It is a good thing we don't eat like this every day...or I would end up like Chloe...passed out on the floor!
Hope the Easter bunny brought you something good this year!  I am eyeing up 3 Easter baskets filled with chocolate  :D
