-50/50 Sauce Week

-50/50 Sauce Week, Angel Hair, Traditional Marinara/Traditional Meat Sauce & Meatball/Italian Sausage

Day 12, Meal 23

My Rating:

My Rating:Today I gave my least favorite pasta another shot, under the condition that I had to use a remaining option of 50/50 sauces left available. Fortunately, I had a combo that at least sounded pair-able: Angel Hair, Traditional Marinara/Traditional Meat Sauce & Italian Sausage/Meatball: So one thing I instantly noticed with this dish: HUGE PORTIONS! It was just a crazy amount of pasta that I couldn’t even finish the dish. For someone that used to do competitive eating, I don’t know what happened to me! This however is a good thing! So while this is still an improvement from […]

Day 11, Meal 22

My Rating:

My Rating:For tonight’s Olive Garden visit, I ventured over to Port Richey, FL in Pasco County, which is the 7th County I’ve been to since last week. My 2 girls Chloe & Olivia were excited to take a drive (they love going in the car).  I did some calculations earlier today to figure out remaining sauce options, and here is the break down of what I have left: Alfredo/Asiago Garlic Alfredo Creamy Mushroom /Alfredo Creamy Mushroom /Five Cheese Marinara Creamy Mushroom /Traditional Marinara Creamy Mushroom /Traditional Meat Sauce Five Cheese Marinara/Traditional Marinara  Traditional Marinara/Traditional Meat Sauce Traditional Meat Sauce/Alfredo …and what I’ve […]

-50/50 Sauce Week, Cavatappi, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Traditional Marinara & Crispy Shrimp Fritta

Day 11, Meal 21

My Rating:

My Rating:For lunch today, during 50/50 sauce week, I ordered Cavatappi, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Traditional Marinara & Crispy Shrimp Fritta: This was a very good lunch! Now you might be noticing there isn’t any Traditional Marinara shown… Yea I have no idea how I didn’t even realize that and just ate it as is, and it was still delicious, obviously. The good news is while I had this exact meal back on Day 5, Meal 9, which I rated a 7/10, today was definitely an 8/10, so I’m going to bump this meal up a point from the last time having […]

-50/50 Sauce Week, Fettuccine, Alfredo/Five Cheese Marinara & Grilled Chicken

Day 10, Meal 20

My Rating:

My Rating:For tonight’s dinner, I ventured over to Lake County, FL, as I decided I am going to try to visit 16 Olive Garden locations across my region (averaging a goal of 2 per week). So far I have been to locations in the following Counties across Central Florida: Citrus, Hillsborough, Lake, Marion, Orange, & Sumter. For tonight’s 50/50 split, I mixed in Five Cheese Marinara to one of my all time favorite and most ordered dishes over the years, Fettuccine Alfredo with Grilled Chicken: Sadly, I did not love this sauce mixture with this meal, as the Five Cheese Marinara really […]

-50/50 Sauce Week, Spaghetti, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Traditional Meat Sauce & Meatballs

Day 10, Meal 19

My Rating:

My Rating:It’s Wednesday, so that means lunch time in Orlando around the corner from the office, over at the ORLANDO – WATERFORD LAKES NEAR UCF location. I went with Spaghetti, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Traditional Meat Sauce & Meatballs for my 50/50 sauce week combination: I really enjoyed a LOT about this meal. The Garlic flavor really helped out, and the Meat (sausage) in the sauce made for a nice addition to the flavor with the meatballs without actually needing additional sausage. I had a brief conversation with the server, and she mentioned I am her 2nd Pasta Pass holder so far (and […]
