-50/50 Sauce Week, Rigatoni, Five Cheese Marinara/Traditional Meat Sauce & Italian Sausage

Day 9, Meal 18

My Rating:

My Rating:Dinner tonight consists of Rigatoni, Five Cheese Marinara/Traditional Meat Sauce & Italian Sausage: Back on Day 1, Meal 2 I had basically the same meal, except that was solely Five Cheese Marinara. Surprisingly, it makes a bit of a difference. It’s no surprise to my readers by now that I LOVE cheese which means I LOVE Five Cheese Marinara. While this was a very good meal, I MUCH preferred without half the Traditional Meat Sauce taking up precious real estate on my plate. And while I added in quite a bit of Romano, it just wasn’t the same. Here is […]

-50/50 Sauce Week, Rigatoni, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Five Cheese Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta

Day 8, Meal 15

My Rating:

My Rating:For Week 2, I am going with the theme “50/50 Sauce Week”. Every meal, I’ll do a new combination of sauces mixed together, because that just adds another layer of awesomeness to this promotion that Olive Garden provides. I went with a strong choice to start the theme, slightly altering my top rated 10/10 meal from Day 6, Meal 11, except I halved the Five Cheese Marinara and added in some Asiago Garlic Alfredo: While this sounds even BETTER than with Five Cheese Marinara solo, it unfortunately pales in comparison.  I felt that it lacked the same bold cheesy flavor, […]

Day 6, Meal 11

My Rating:

My Rating:I was REALLY looking forward to today’s lunch meal, as I ran a trail 5k this morning with my dad. We needed a post meal celebration, so I took him out to eat, at Olive Garden of course, and I ordered a meal that I saw on a facebook group, Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Pass Holders, that sounded really good to me, consisting of Rigatoni, Five Cheese Marinara & Crispy Chicken Fritta: …and with cheese: So how does it rate? This meal is off the charts!!! 10/10 for sure. Everything about it was perfect for me, it just worked […]

-Testing the Waters, Rigatoni, Five Cheese Marinara & Italian Sausage

Day 1, Meal 2

My Rating:

My Rating:For my second meal, during dinner service, I decided to skip the breadsticks and soup, and go right for the main course: This is Rigatoni, with Five Cheese Marinara and (2) Italian Sausage . This was my first time ever having Rigatoni at Olive Garden, and I really enjoyed it. I brought my 2 girls, Olivia and Chloe, in with me for dinner, and they ended up splitting the Spaghetti and Chicken Fingers kids meal with French Fries. And as my oldest daughter Chloe would say,  “And Ketchup too Daddy”. Here is a picture of us a few days […]
