If you're a more-the-merrier type of host, consider serving a wide array of all things authentic Italian for a classic dinner to remember. Pasta may come to mind when you think of Italian food, but Italy is also known for its beef. Some traditional Italian steak entrees you may enjoy preparing include bracciole (stuffed flank steak), bresaola e rucola (Italian salami), or beef steak (which is similar to a grilled rib-eye).

A classic Italian feast works well for sit-down, more formal dinner parties. The setup encourages guests to sit, eat and talk to those seated nearby, rather than mill about mingling and sampling at casual food stations.

Now that you have a handful of creative yet practical ways to throw an Italian dinner party, all you need is a bag of Italian-inspired groceries to get started and some friends to join you! Ciao!
