just decided to have a family valentine's dinner party. there will be 8-10 adults and 4-7 very young kids. One of the guests loves bolognese, so I am considering making Marcella's recipe, but there is a (fish-eating) vegetarian in the bunch. Can I start with a mussels-in-white-wine course, then make a salad, and perhaps a pomodoro version of the pasta? Or should I skip the bolognese altogether and just make some sort of more Valentinesque meal (heart-shaped pizza for the kids and who knows what else)? Thoughts???
