Last month, I had the grand opportunity to once again participate in the First Taste Menu at Carrabba's. The folks at Carrabba's really spoil me. I really feel like part of the family every time I come and especially at these First Taste events where they preview some new and some oldie but goodies shakeups to their menu. I took my friend Kaylee and everything was fantastic!
fried and tossed with romano cheese. Served with our housemade
marinara for dipping-these were so good, made for a great app!
LINGUINE with CLAMS
Linguine tossed with clams, scallions and our white wine cream sauce. How I LOVE thee! This was my favorite!
Lightly breaded, wood-grilled and topped with artichokes, sundried
tomatoes and our housemade basil lemon butter sauce. This is an oldie but goodie but I was reminded how it is always one of my faves!
CONCHIGLIE (con-kee-lyeh) BOLOGNESE
Shell shaped pasta tossed in our housemade bolognese meat sauce
topped with freshly grated ricotta salata. Yes, it looks as good as it tastes!
Wood-grilled chicken topped with sautéed eggplant, prosciutto,
fontina cheese and our port wine fig sauce. This was amazing!
PENNE ROMANO with WOOD-GRILLED CHICKEN
Penne tossed with wood-grilled chicken, sautéed mushrooms and red
bell peppers in our roasted garlic black pepper cream sauce. So so so good!
MINI CANNOLI Crisp mini pastry shell stuffed with sweet ricotta and chocolate chip
filling, topped with pistachios and powdered sugar. Perfect way to end!
Also on the menu is the APPLE CROSTATA, which I think I passed out in a food coma, because I didn't take a picture of it. This is a light and crispy open-faced cinnamon apple tart with a thin layer of
hazelnut filling baked in our wood-fired oven, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and our caramel sauce. Thank you Carrabba's for taking such good care of me once again!
