http://www.mangiabenepasta.com/desserts.html   lists 150 Italian
desserts. Useful for ideas anyway. See also
There are at least 3 new books on Italian desserts. If you are in a 
you might want to browse and take a look at them:
at them
Italian Baking Secrets by Orsini; and Dolce Italiano Desserts From The 
Babbo Kitchen
are two of them.
I think I'd probably poll the other diners to see if they love chocolate 
or not, cake or not
or if they are dying for something special like tiramisu. (Diabetic?)
I always tended to make a couple
of desserts back in those days when we did something like this.


> Hello, everyone.  I'm sitting here, recharging my Ipod, and catching up on all those "someday I want to ask..." questions. <g>
> So...for Christmas (day) a few of my friends and I are going to get together for a nice dinner, the main course for which will feature lasagne (I'm assuming some sort of beef/meat variant).  My task is to bring the dessert.  I'm not having a lot of luck thinking of possible desserts that would suit being served as part of an Italian dinner, AND be nice enough to have a bit of a "shine" for the holiday AND only serve a small number of people.  So, I thought I'd ask the list--what would you guys make in such a situation?
