April First Taste Carrabba's Menu

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! 


GNOCCHI FRITTI Italian potato dumplings breaded with panko breadcrumbs, lightly 
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!

MAHI WULFE 
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! 

POLLO SORRENTO 
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!
