Italian Superbowl food
How about a prosciutto,cheese,roasted pepper rolled bread? Change the filling as to his whim. Not a calzone, but a jelly roled type of bread. It can then be baked and sliced into one inch servings and reheated as neccessary.
Either homemade pizza or store bought dough.
How about polpetti (meatballs) with fresh marinara sauce which he could put in a crockpot to keep hot with mozzarella on the side and some good crusty rolls.
Oh! Also, Epicurious has a fantastic Tortellini Soup recipe which could be kept in a crockpot also...just substitute ground beef for the italian sausage.
