AMAZING
1st PAPPARDELLE
Nel Centro, Portland
Pappardelle with braised lamb, mint & parmigiano reggiano. My wife ordered this... One taste and I knew she was gonna enjoy her entree. The flavor of this entree is incredible. A must order in my opinion.
REALLY GOOD
2nd RIGATONI
Tasty n Daughters, Portland
Sunday gravy, baby back rib ragu, parmigiano reggiano. Rigatoni was the perfect consistency, and the ragu so meaty tasting.
3rd TAGLIATELLE WITH BEEF & PORK RAGU
Luce, Portland
This pasta dish is excellent. The ragu was very meaty.
4th ORECCHIETTE
Nel Centro, Portland
Orecchiette with Italian sausage, black kale, roasted tomatoes & smoked pecorino. The balance of all of the ingredients was very good. The portion size was perfect for dinner.
5th PASTA CARBONARA
Petite Provence Boulangerie and Patisserie, Portland
This was my entreé choice for dinner. Linguini tossed in a creamy parmesan & egg sauce with crisped pork, finished with shaved parmesan cheese.
6th CAJUN CHICKEN LINGUINI
Petite Provence Boulangerie and Patisserie, Portland
This was the special of the evening. My wife really enjoyed it. The serving was generous. The pasta-chicken ration was good.
PRETTY GOOD
8th MEAT LOVER'S TREAT
The Old Spaghetti Factory, Clackamas
Italian sausage, meatballs & spaghetti in a rich meat sauce.
9th CHICKEN MACCHERONI & BROCCOLI
L'Osteria, Boston
The portion was plenty for a heavy lunch. The pasta was perfect for me and the chicken & broccoli made for a great combo.
11th CHICKEN GIARDINO
Olive Garden Italian Restaurant, Portland
I was pleasantly surprised by this dish. Overall it was better than I thought it would be. Grilled chicken & a medley of fresh vegetables tossed with ruffled pappardelle pasta in a light lemon herb sauce. The portion is fairly generous.
12th ZOODLES PRIMAVERA WITH SHRIMP
Olive Garden Italian Restaurant, Portland
My wife ordered this entreé. Zucchini noodles tossed in a light basil cream sauce with broccoli, carrots, seasoned tomatoes, roasted red peppers & mushrooms. She enjoyed it, but felt the zucchini pasta portion was smaller than she liked and there were way too many roasted red peppers.
