When our friend Ariel turned 40, she wanted a party at home, but she also wanted to be able to hang out with her 14 guests. Her solution: she ordered lasagne from a local and really good Italian deli, and then filled out the menu with charcuterie and homemade side dishes (fava bean puree, grilled asparagus, bruschetta, big arugula salad) that were quickly put together at home, with minimal mess.
