Spring, (and of course summer) are fast approaching, and so as the snow melts and the weather warms up, we are looking to lighten up our meals. To get away from the fall harvest of squash and pumpkin, and the winter soups and Sunday roasts.

If you are entertaining at home, one of the easiest meals you can make is pasta. We mix up pasta dishes in our house at least twice a week because it's something that is guaranteed to not get the side-eye glances from the kids accompanied by whining, of course. Plus, pasta bars are often a huge hit for guests who are able to choose what they’d like to mix in, and of course it allows you to offer gluten free or other allergy-friendly options.

One of the most important things when entertaining, is to pair your dishes and beverages. There are so many varietals of wine on the market, and not all are going to pair well with the dish you are serving.

For this Spaghetti alla Carbonara dish, I took the advice from the Santa Margherita USA website and paired it with Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio. And of course it was amazing.

I also added bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dipping sauces, roasted tomatoes, shrimp and chicken to the table, along with a Caesar salad (dressing on the side).
