DIY Crowd-Pleasing Pasta Bar Party 

Create a build-your-own pasta bar with options for everyone! Yes, even for people who don't eat pasta. Watch how simple this DIY party meal is to make.

“I’m hosting a party and struggling to find one meal that will fit everyone’s dietary needs and taste preferences … HELP!” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received emails like this. One simple answer? Create a build-your-own pasta bar with options for everyone!

Hit The Bar … The Pasta Bar

A pasta bar is a simple DIY party meal idea that is bound to impress your diners. I like to put out various layering options: several types of gluten-free pasta, veggies, cheeses, sauces, and lean proteins.

But wait a minute … don’t eat pasta? No worries! I personally don’t do so well with pasta either – not even gluten-free pasta. So I usually skip it and use steamed or grilled cauliflower as the base.

There’s something here for everyone, you just need to get flexible!
