Secondo piatto

I'm having some friends over on Saturday and was thinking of making linguine con le vongole (clams). However, I'm not sure what I should serve as the next course.
Any suggestions? I really don't feel like making a fish or seafood as a secondo but maybe a meat dish? How about Veal Saltimbocca or chicken?

Anyone have any ideas?

Great Idea. Milanese is the one with the peppers right?

Sounds delicious but I think I don't want to be deep frying when guests are over, plus I want to kind of keep in on the lighter side.
What do you call this recipe?

I generally serve Linguine con Vongole as my main course. A green salad and crusty bread, and a good white wine (Gavi, hopefully) round out the simple meal.

And that's what I did. I had some nice crusty bread and a good salad.
I used a Pinot Grigio for the clams and drank a few glasses.
