When you don't want guests filling up on appetizers before dinner, which so often happens, only make one hors d'oevres.
Put out a wedge of good cheese and bread and end it there.
Here is a good idea when you want your guests to nibble while you are getting the dinner ready, without getting too full.
Serve with wine and maybe hunks of good Parmigiano Reggiano and you are done.
Wrap a slice of Prosciutto di Parma around a good Italian breadstick, also known as a grissini.
If you want to be fancy, place a pitted Gaeta olive on the top of each breadstick.
I buy the rosemary flavored grissini from Italy, and everyone gobbles them up.
Serve with a nice glass of crisp Pinot Grigio and you are set!
