Help! Daughter's birthday dinner tonight: she has requested fettuccine Alfredo. What else should I serve? She specified NO FISH!

I am planning to make fennel and blood orange salad from the NYT Cookbook to serve with it....there will be children, adults, and grandparents present, so we need a little meat.

Why don't you add some bacon or pancetta to the pasta? It's such a hearty dish, I can't imagine eating a whole separate meat dish with it. The rest of your menu sounds great, but I'm biased... :)

I'd probably just do a simple grilled chicken breast, which could be sliced and served over the pasta for those who want meat. For me the pasta and salad would be plenty!

I also think you want to stick to something pretty light with Fettuccine Alfredo. If you want a separate dish (instead of adding pancetta to the pasta - which would be great) - you could do a simple sauteed chicken paillard or maybe veal scallopini with lemon. Very old school, but still delicious.

Pasta, salad and Italian bread would be enough for me; if you like the idea of grilled chicken, this has been a mainstay in our family forever, you don't have to marinate it for so long ... http://food52.com/recipes...

My daughter's favorite is a spicy chicken strips..."lightly" blackened. The contrast to the Alfredo sauce is nice.
