Italian themed dinner parties are my favorite kind of dinner parties – which should come as no surprise really since my love for pasta and pizza has been well documented here. Honestly, I’ll use any excuse to whip up a big bowl of pasta and indulge in Italian red wines.
Besides being super yummy, Italian dishes are usually very quick and easy to make which in my books make them perfect for dinner parties.
Here are a few dishes I’m planning to include in my next Italian dinner party menu:
Gorgonzola, Grape & Honey Crostini

Seared Lemon Pepper Beef Carpaccio

Creamy Tomato Lasagna Florentine

Wine pairing ideas: Frappato, Barbera, Sangiovese or Nebiolo.
