Re: Cheap Party Eats??
Pasta bar. For dd's first birthday we used Rachael Ray's recipe for a POP-sta bar (can find it on foodtv.com, just search for "Pop-sta") and it has 3 recipes, a spaghetti with tomato basil sauce, penne with parsley pesto, and a farfalle (bow tie) with gorgonzola cream sauce. The most expensive one was the gorgonzola sauce, but if you do the tomato basil sauce and the pesto, you should be pretty good. We did 2 lbs of each kind of pasta for about 25 guests and had plenty leftover. We did a veggie tray and had cake from Walmart.
