-Dessert Week, Gluten-Free Rotini, Traditional Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Refill] + Black Tie Mousse Cake

Day 19, Meal 37

My Rating:

My Rating:Today’s lunch is Gluten-Free Rotini, Traditional Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta, which is from Day 11, Meal 22, sans the Five Cheese Marinara: Sadly, I did not like this meal much at all. The Traditional Marinara was overly chunky for me, which it probably is like that normally, but I think the majority of the times I’ve had it, it’s been mixed with other sauces. I just feel like nothing in the meal paired well. 🙁 5/10. With the bad news out of the way, I was really excited for today’s dessert, one of my favorites: Black Tie Mousse […]

-Dessert Week, Cavatappi, Alfredo & Italian Sausage [Refill] + Lemon Cream Cake

Day 18, Meal 36

My Rating:

My Rating:For dinner tonight, I’m back in my hometown location in Inverness, FL, and the wife and kiddos are joining me! I modified my previous meal from Day 8,  Meal 16 which consisted of Cavatappi, Alfredo/Traditional Marinara & Meatball/Italian Sausage. I took away the Traditional Marinara and Meatball and this was the result in a refill portion: Delicious. I really like the Cavatappi pasta in general, and while I wasn’t quite sure how the Alfredo work pair with this combination, I thoroughly liked it. The ONLY downside was the Italian Sausage definitely took over the meal and the delicious Alfredo was less pronounced […]

-Dessert Week, Fettuccine, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Crispy Shrimp Fritta [Refill] + Tiramisu

Day 18, Meal 35

My Rating:

My Rating:For today’s lunch, I visited county # 12 on the 8 Weeks of Pasta journey, over in Kissimmee, FL (Osceola County) as I was in the area today. I went with a refill portion of Fettuccine, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Crispy Shrimp Fritta, which was modified from Day 9, Meal 17 which I rated 8/10, except that was a 50/50 sauce with Creamy Mushroom as well. Let’s see how this compares: Wow, this was fantastic. I am surprised I haven’t had this yet, as I am pretty sure this meal consists of my favorites in each of the Pasta/Sauce/Topping […]

-Dessert Week, Rigatoni, Five Cheese Marinara & Meatball [Refill] + Seasonal Sicilian Cheesecake

Day 17, Meal 34

My Rating:

My Rating:For tonight’s dinner, I took a short drive to Altamonte Springs, FL in Seminole County, which is the 11th county I’ve visited  for Pasta Pass. It fortunately wasn’t too far of a drive as I was working in Orlando today. My server tonight was Karla, who provided fantastic service, and she mentioned at the end that it was her FIRST DAY! I was definitely surprised considering I had no idea she wasn’t a seasoned pro. I made sure to let the Manager know she did fantastic. For my dinner, I went with a refill portion of Rigatoni, Five Cheese Marinara […]

-Dessert Week, Fettuccine, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Grilled Chicken [Refill] + Warm Berry Crostata

Day 17, Meal 33

My Rating:

My Rating:For today’s meal out in Orlando, I went with a refill portion of Fettuccine, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Grilled Chicken, which was modified from Day 4, Meal 8, which had regular Alfredo instead and was rated 9/10…  I’m hoping for the same or better today: So, it came out really fast and looks great. I was super excited and took my first bite. Disappointment. This dish was super bland, except for the couple of garlic cloves. I’ve had Asiago Garlic Alfredo in some form or fashion 9 times to date, this being my 10th, so I know what it should […]
