-50/50 Sauce Week, Gluten-Free Rotini, Five Cheese Marinara/Traditional Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta

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, Cavatappi, Alfredo/Traditional Marinara & Meatball/Italian Sausage

Day 8, Meal 16

My Rating:

My Rating:It’s combination time! I really like the idea of mixed sauces as it definitely makes things fun and more creative for flavors. While there are already a good variety of choices of 6 sauces available, including Creamy Mushroom, Traditional Marinara, Five Cheese Marinara, Traditional Meat Sauce, Alfredo & Asiago Garlic Alfredo, having the ability to combine 2 together turns 6 options into 36 options. I decided to Cavatappi with a 50/50 of Alfredo and Traditional Marinara, paired with a Meatball/Italian Sausage topping: This meal was very good, and the only thing I didn’t realize was Alfredo mixed with Traditional […]

-Testing the Waters, Spaghetti, Traditional Marinara & Meatballs

Day 5, Meal 10

My Rating:

My Rating:Meal 10 has arrived! This is sort of a mini-milestone meal, as 10 meals in 5 days is a bit of commitment (despite having another 102 meals to go), and since I have a 5k run in the morning, I didn’t want to go crazy with the calories and skipped the breadsticks, soup and/or salad. I ended up choosing another classic: Spaghetti, Traditional Marinara and Meatballs: And the cheesy overload version: This visit, I ventured over to the Ocala location which is about half an hour from me. So far I’ve been to locations in Orlando, Ocala, The Villages […]

-Testing the Waters, Whole Grain Linguine, Traditional Marinara & Meatball/Italian Sausage

Day 3, Meal 6

My Rating:

My Rating:As I have exhausted several of the options available (not factoring combinations), I chose Whole Grain Linguine for my pasta, Traditional Marinara for my sauce and since I’ve already exhausted all my toppings options, I went with the non-advertised Meatball/Sausage combo (1 each) for my sixth meal: I was a bit surprised how much I liked the Whole Grain Linguine, and I was expecting it to be the typical darker colored pasta with a firmer texture. Nope, it definitely resembled their regular offerings, and since this pasta choice is their lowest calorie option at 350 per serving, it is quite […]
