I like Broccoli Rabe sauted with olive oil and garlic. If you're not a fan of Broccoli Rabe then maybe sauteed spinach. But I agree with Joerogo, my lasagna only needs a salad as a side.

 
You beat me to it!
 
Broccoli Rabe chopped and sauted with garlic and olive oil and some red pepper flake

    My father and I have been doing the Chinese for Christmas Dinner thing for many a year.  Reminds me of the "Christmas Story" movie when they bring the roast duck with the head still attached.

      I have always made "Grandma's Salad" as a side dish with lasagna:
      -1 head iceberg lettuce washed torn and patted dry.
      -1/2 C sour cream mixed with 3 TBSP vinegar.
      -1/2 C mayonnaise (NOT miracle whip) mixed with 2 TBSP vinegar
      -1 lb good quality bacon, fried
      -1 spanish (purple) onion slided into thin rings.
      -1 small bag shredded parmesan cheese.
      Place the lettuce in the bottom of a 9x11 pan.  Drizzle with the sour cream/vinegar mix.  Put the onion rings on top of this.  Drizzle with the mayo/vinegar mix.  Put the bacon (broken into small pieces) on top of this.  Sprinkle with the package of shredded parmesan cheese.  Refrigerate up to one day (best right away).  Yummy.   G-ma developed this recipe on her own in the late '40's and it was the highlight of many a potluck/family picnic in Oshkosh, WI for years.... I'm now making it a highlight in the Milwaukee area.

        Chewy, You really don't understand this Italian thing of ours

        Batter dipped?  Deep fried?  To perfectly good anchovies?  Tony's grandmother would probably wack you a couple times with her shoe.

        The garlic cheese toast sounds good though.  As long as you use Italian bread and asiago

        In that case forget the Anchovies, how about some Frosted Flakes with a good EVOO on them?
        Actually Joe I've had the Anchovies at some Italian place in LA, crunchy and really delicious, with the cheese garlic toast, try them, eggwash, seasoned flour Anchovies double dregged, deep fry till real crispy.

          Might as well just use smelt and not waste good anchovies.
