Italian dinner parties come in many levels. There is one if you want to spend all the time in the kitchen and you do all of this crazy plated food or these is another. [BLANK_AUDIO] Which is get some nice antipasti just cured meat pickled vegetables really nice cheeses put them out on a tray. Then make a really nice big bowl of spaghetti with something simple, like pesto or tomatoes. And then serve a whole bowl of giant, fresh, magnificent peaches with a little balsamic vinegar and salt. No one will walk away saying, oh they didn't work very hard on that party.
