Fast, easy, and inexpensive, pasta makes the perfect game-time meal! Dishes like pasta salad can feed a crowd and are easy to eat while tailgating or watching the game at home. For your next game day, we recommend our Penne BLT with Blue Cheese Buttermilk Dressing. It takes less than 30 minutes to make, and if you’re also serving game day favorites like pulled pork sliders or grilled hamburgers and hot dogs the flavors and creamy dressing will complement the rest of the meal.
Need some more inspiration for a healthy and successful game day party? Here are some tips:
Most party stores sell sports themed decorations. Are they all out? Buy plain items and decorate them in your favorite team’s colors!
Make sure to have a few refreshing drinks for children and tasty mock-tails for guests who prefer not to drink alcohol. Everyone should be able to partake in a fun beverage – alcoholic or not!
Chop fresh veggies (or just buy them pre-sliced) and serve with a low-fat dressing or hummus dip. If you think your crowd will want something more savory, serve up some freshly popped popcorn with garlic or spiced salt. Or try an outside-the-box appetizer like our Pasta Caprese Cups!
Show your team spirit by putting on a team jersey, sweatshirt or hat. Feeling extra excited? Go all the way and paint your face!
Have a fun activity ready for kids who may not be into watching the game. Pick a sports-themed craft project or good, old-fashioned crayons and coloring books. Both the kids and adults at the party will appreciate this.
