    I'm making pasta tonight. Looking to find something yummy to have on the side. Am tired of the
    traditional salad, or if not having salad usually have green beans or broccoli on the side. Anyone
    have anything creative and different to suggest??? Thanks in advance.

    If you mean pasta and tomato style sauce why not just go with some nice hot garlic bread? You didn't
    say if you were "headed" toward any specific taste or "flair". I've always found a nice plate of
    pasta with sauce and garlic bread (made from fresh garlic of course) satisfied me very nicely.

    Canned or fresh fruit...

    That makes a refreshing change once in awhile for my Brunches that I make. My usual side is fresh
    diced Avocado and Tomatoe served on fresh baby spinach leaves.

    We get burned out on it after a few days. :p

    What kind of pasta and sauce do you have in mind? If its a traditional style tomato sauce with
    spaghetti or other substantial pasta, I go with the other suggestions that a side dish isn't really
    necessary, just some good garlic bread with the pasta should be satisfying.

    i had the same problem the other night. i salted some zuchinni slices, let em sit in the fridge for
    a half hour, and then wiped em off. sauteed them with a teeny bit of olive oil and a chopped
    shallot. turned up the heat at the end and added a splash of sherry and some chopped fresh basil,
    and cooked it till the basil wilted. it was *really* good.
