-50/50 Pasta, Rigatoni/Whole Grain Linguine, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Crispy Shrimp Fritta [Half]

Day 51, Meal 122

My Rating:

My Rating:New theme day! As I did 50/50 Sauce Week back on Week 2, and did Double Meat during on Week 5, it’s time to get creative with the Pasta! This is 8 Weeks of PASTA after-all. We are going to do 50/50 Pasta, combining 2 of the 7 Pasta options together. To start off, I am going with Rigatoni/Whole Grain Linguine, mixed with Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Crispy Shrimp Fritta: This probably would have looked prettier if the Pasta was mixed together, but it still came out great! Rigatoni on one side, Whole Grain Linguine on the other. I was […]

-I ❤ Alfredo, Rigatoni, Alfredo & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Half]

Day 46, Meal 112

My Rating:

My Rating:My LAST meal on the I ❤ Alfredo theme. I am going with Rigatoni, Alfredo & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Half]: This was very good! The Crispy Chicken Fritta seemed to work better in this meal over the last, but I am chalking that up to this piece of Crispy Chicken Fritta being a little less tough. The abundance of Alfredo worked out great for my (1) Breadstick to dip in. 10/10.  Pro tip: Ask for the Breadstick to come out when the meal comes out so it’s fresh and warm, if you like to eat them together like me. And if you know […]

Day 45, Meal 107

My Rating:

My Rating:It’s Wednesday, so that means I’m over in Orlando today for work! Fortunately, there is an Olive Garden close by, at the ORLANDO – WATERFORD LAKES NEAR UCF location. For my 107th visit, I’m going with Rigatoni, Alfredo & Crispy Shrimp Fritta [Half]: This was another ridiculously good meal. I wasn’t quite sure how it would work with the Rigatoni, and it worked REALLY well. 10/10. I also a added in some freshly grated Romano, which is always an excellent companion to any dish. It’s also part of that Italian generosity that Olive Garden loves to provide, as they literally […]

-Tour of Orlando, Rigatoni, Traditional Marinara & Meatballs [Refill]

Day 42, Meal 96

My Rating:

My Rating:It’s time for the “Tour of Orlando”! 7 meals across 7 locations in 7 hours, around the Orlando area. Orlando is where it all started for Olive Garden back in 1982, December 13, 1982 to be exact. We even share the same birthday year! Today I’ll be having all 7 pasta options, which includes Spaghetti, Rigatoni, Angel Hair, Fettuccine, Whole Grain Linguine, Cavatappi & Gluten-Free Rotini. Each meal will include Traditional Marinara & (1) Meatball, in a refill portion. Total calories are 2,945 across the entire day, and since my personal limit is 2600, I’ll need to ensure I […]

-Cinque Pasti (aka 5 Meals), Rigatoni, Traditional Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Refill]

Day 40, Meal 88

My Rating:

My Rating:Cinque Pasti is COMPLETE for the day. It’s been a long and exhausting day full of Olive Garden. #WorthIt. So let’s get to the final meal of Rigatoni, Traditional Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta: Originally, this came out as a full-size portion: I’ve had mixed feelings with the Traditional Marinara, and tonight was not its night. Sadly, this is a 5/10. The Traditional Meat Sauce is WORLDS better (although it’s also more than double the calories). #WorthIt. Here is the Ziosk showing a cost savings of $14.82: Here is the nutritional information for this meal:
