I have a question about the recipe "White Pasta with Garlic Parmigiano Breadcrumbs" from sdebrango. Okay, me again! I am definitely making this on our vacation and just wondered what you serve with this pasta? Salad? Bread? Thought I might as well ask the expert what goes best!

You are so sweet, I don't serve with bread because the pasta has enough carbs for me. I like to serve with a salad or with broccoli rabe, spinach or broccoli sautéed in garlic and olive oil. A fresh salad with some citrus would be delicious, maybe some arugula, orange segments, nuts, micro greens. I served once with belgian endive used as a boat and filled with mandarin orange, micro greens and pecans. It was delicious. Hope this helps.

Thank you all for your quick and terrific suggestions. Since we will be at a rental home I think I will go with an easy pan roasted broccoli. Agree bread would be carb overload. By the way - want you to know that I have told all my friends about this site. It is the friendliest group of fabulous cooks I have ever encountered! Thanks again!

I think thats a wonderful choice. I have been on this site since 2011 and have found it to be the same, welcoming, friendly and helpful. Best wishes for a great dinner.

Definitely not bread unless you're. House where A meal isn't a meal w/I bread. As the pasta is rich, serve it in smallish portions as a 2nd course. Open with antipasto or salas, main couras à simple good fish or meat. No dessert. Or pause for conversation and gavé dessert at and of evening.
