I hosted a very tasty and fun home party in celebration of T’s 14th birthday. We had 24 people in total and I made enough food to feed them all a full course dinner, thanks to Ragu. The conversations and visiting among the family and friends is what truly made the party all worth while. It was nice to get everyone together under one roof with no time constraints and the ease of being in the comfort of our home to relax.
I received so many compliments on the food. Everything turned out perfect!
- Ceasar salad
- Garden salad with fresh veggies on the side
- Garlic Bread
- Vegetable Pizza Cupcakes
- Chicken fettuccine with Ragu alfredo
- Spaghetti with beef Ragu sauce
- Whole wheat spaghetti noodles with turkey Ragu sauce (healthy option)
- Strawberry lemonade
- Iced Tea
- Italian Cream Puffs
- Cheesecake – various flavors
We had more than enough food and everyone was happy they had the option to taste each dish. The Vegetable Pizza Cupcakes were a lot of fun to make and a huge hit with everyone. The kids especially loved them and it was an easy way to hide vegetables in their food, in the form of a cupcake. Brilliant.
Ragu’s easy recipe to make Veggie Pizza Cupcakes was so fun to make. I highly recommend trying them at home.
We setup our party as a buffet style so each person could make their own plate and select the food they wanted to eat. I must say our party was a success and T was more than pleased.
*Quick Tip: when making fettuccine alfredo I add a can of cream of mushroom soup mixed into the alfredo sauce to cut the tangy edge and add more of a cream taste.
