After not seeing my family for almost a year, Rip and I are thrilled to be able to host for the holidays. We have pulled together an Italian feast that can be used anytime throughout the year. The fusilli pasta dish has just the right amount of creaminess paired with tomatoes and infused with the smokiness of crispy bacon. Since everything is different these days, we went for a nontraditional but extremely elegant and festive tablescape. Why not have purple glasses and batik print napkins?
