Go Olive Garden! Dinner Today, Dinner Tomorrow

I believe I’ve mentioned this a time or thirty, but Olive Garden is my favorite restaurant in the world. Yes, the world. 

So I’m in there several times a month and for every event, holiday, season, catastrophe and excuse I can think of to get there.

Love me some OG.

But I normally dine in and roll out. I very rarely do the Olive Garden To Go thing because if I have to go inside to pay anyhow, I might as well eat there, right?

Except last Friday. I did both.

Dinner Today, Dinner Tomorrow.

Two times the yum, but first things first.

Dinner Today.

I ordered one of the classic meals, Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce, and it was spec-tac-u-lar. But, I took half of that monster home, obvy.

Holy humongous?

Naturally there were several (or more) bread sticks and a bowl of salad invited to dinner as well.

My friend ordered the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and added some meatballs on the tippy-top.

Dinner Tomorrow.

We each picked another meal from a select list to take home and enjoy the next day! (Both meals together for just $12.95. Score!)

Entrées include:

Lasagna Rollatini with Meat Sauce
Mezzaluna Ravioli with Five Cheese Marinara
Spaghetti with Four Cheese Meat Sauce
Five Cheese Ziti al Forno
Fettuccine Alfredo

I picked the Mezzaluna Ravioli with Five Cheese Marinara and my friend picked the Five Cheese Ziti al Forno. In less than five minutes, the ready-to-cook meals were at my table.

And yes, they’re ready to cook, not already cooked. (Well, the pasta is cooked of course, but the meal is refrigerator-ready.) That surprised me at first, but then I realized how smart that was.

The cheese on top will melt for the very first time at home. No reheated leftovers.

Go Olive Garden!

And so I went home with dinner today in my belly, and dinner tomorrow in my hand.

The next day after a few minutes in the microwave, I had a dinner that was every bit as good as if I’d eaten it fresh at the restaurant.

Magic. Olive Garden magic.

Talk about making a busy weeknight a little less hectic and a lot more enjoyable!

 

 What do you love about Olive Garden?

 

Olive Garden provided a gift card so I could try the new To Go options. Just don’t tell them that I would have done it anyhow. ;) My Olive Garden love is forever.

  1. Oh my goodness! You are making me so hungry right now! I LOVE eating at Olive Garden. When I was a city dweller I did take-out a lot, but these days we dine in. Who wants to drive an hour each way for take-out?

  2. I love OG. I admit, when I was in my last trimester with my baby girl, we ate at OG every.night.for.a.week. And it was during the never ending pasta bowl promo.

    Oopsy. Oink.

  3. I love the salad and breadsticks.
