This one's easy. After all, who doesn't love pasta? The great thing about making a delicious batch of sauce and noodles for Easter is that it's filling, so everyone, even those with omnivorous eating habits, can gorge themselves and probably won't miss dining on foods of a more animalistic nature.

Pastas can be extremely diverse, so try to cook up something that will play well off the other foods you're preparing. For example, if you've offered a fruit course of figs, apricots and a cheese, try making a pasta that's both sweet and distinctive, maybe with a smooth, creamy sauce that includes flavors like basil and oregano. On the other hand, if you're serving noodles alongside a spinach salad and baked bread, a more familiar dish, like spaghetti and marinara, will suffice.
