An Italian Holiday Party

Published December 1, 2007.

Serve the antipasti before sitting down; we've made several suggestions but feel free to add your own. The Fettuccine Alfredo should be served immediately, but it can be prepared while the roast pork is resting; start the water boiling and the cream sauce reducing when you remove the pork from the oven. For easiest preparation, blanch the broccoli rabe well ahead of time, You can make the tart several days ahead and the tiramisu up to 24 hours before serving.
