1. rigatoni and roasted veg

2. chicken basque

3. Gnocchi with rosemary ragu and garlic mushrooms, it's a Simon Rimmer recipe and I can't find a link

thanks

THe only issue I'd have with the chicken is that if there's nowhere to sit and you don't have proper cutlery and crockery, it'll be a bugger to eat.

Yes to all 3 but I would have thought the chicken would be a bit tricky to eat as a buffet item. Knowing you're vegetarians I would be looking forward to trying some interesting veggie dishes and wouldn't be at all disappointed to find no meat at all.

The gnocchi.
I love garlic and mushrooms, and Simon Rimmer's recipes always work.

Any of them - they all sound delicious. When should we arrive? grin

The chicken will be cut into largish chunks, not left as in the recipe.

Aren't you all nice saying that you would be fine at an all veggie buffet? My children aren't veggie so I cook meat for them most days and quite a few of my friends are confirmed meat eaters, they cook veggie stuff for me so I cook meat for them, they will try non meat stuff but do frown at it a bit first.

Please turn up at mine on May 5th (with pressie smile) I will be 50 in my very, very late forties!

Ooh, I don't think cooking veggie for a veggie is the same as a veggie cooking meat for me. Just like I wouldn't expect a muslim to cook me pork! It's very sweet of you to be so understanding of your friends' meat obsession!

I'll come to your party!

I know it isn't, pinkyredrose which is why I think I said 'effectively' but it's very similar, just with the addition of potato. Whereas a rice, cous-cous or even an actual potato-based dish would provide more variety, to my mind.

the rigatoni. It looks tasty

filly I missed the word 'effectively'! You're right though they are quite similar.

cous cous dish would be good.
