If you are having a Super Bowl Party—Food is always one of the biggest considerations. You’ll want to provide a menu that is warm and comforting, as well as easy and can be left alone. Depending the number of guests, you may want to consider more than main entrée. Something made and left in a warming Crock Pot is a great idea.
Try Meatball Sandwiches. Let the Meatballs and Sauce keep hot in the pot. Provide Rolls plain, or crust them slightly in the oven with garlic and olive oil. Leave several bowls of different types of grated cheeses and peppers to top the sandwiches—and let the guests serve themselves.

Meatball Sandwiches Recipe for Crock Pot
If you want to go easy easy—make your favorite meatball recipe (or purchase meatballs frozen) and add your favorite Jarred Spaghetti Sauce such as Prego.
Another Entrée suggestion — Baked Lasagna. Better Homes & Gardens provides 19 different recipes: http://www.bhg.com/recipes/ethnic-food/italian/lasagna-recipes/?ordersrc=google2lasagna_slide&cobrandId=ww5&s_kwcid=TC|5599|lasagna%20recipes|www.ifood.tv|C||3978021838
If you have guests who are always willing to try something new, try the Roasted Red Pepper Lasagna with goat cheese.

Whatever entrees you decide on, (more entrée suggestions are coming) don’t forget the vegetables. Instead of a salad, try leaving a large plate of fresh cut vegetables such as carrots, baby tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, yellow squash, snow peas, asparagus, etc. on a table in front of the TV watchers. To make it a bit more tempting, center a bowl of dip or heavy salad dressing (such as blue cheese).
Tip—for asparagus, snow peas and broccoli boil water. Add asparagus, cook for 30 seconds. Remove and run Cold water over. Drain and Chill. Do the same to snow peas and broccoli (separately). These vegetables will be more delicious.
Don’t forget to provide plenty of crisp warm Garlic (and non garlic) Bread.
Like the vegetables, if you center a bowl of flavored olive oil in the center of a bunch of crisp Italian of French Bread—it’ll soon disappear.
