Review and a quick Giveaway: Romano's Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil Pasta

This giveaway is now closed!

I was lucky to have won a Romano's Macaroni Grill pasta gift set. This set came with the creamy basil Parmesan chicken and pasta. I also got the cute little strainer, a slotted spoon, a little cheese grater (and I do not recommend using it for wetter cheeses, just dry cheese like Parm. lol) and coupons for more free pasta meals! You may be familiar with the restaurant, I have never eaten at one though.

what I won, thanks again HoneyB!

This was pretty easy to make, all I had to do was add chicken, butter and milk. It comes with the pasta, dry cheeses, seasoning, sauce and sun dried tomatoes. It easily fed myself and the kiddos plus a little leftover (Mr. was away). I thought it was pretty good, but the kids weren't impressed with the flavor. I have seen this at my local grocery store chain for under $5 a box, but they only carried this flavor and an Alfredo one. I picked up an Alfredo one for the kids, since they love that.

Romano's Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites dinner kits include Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne, Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine and Chicken Marsala with Linguine. You can also save $1 with a coupon from their site on your next purchase. Find a store near you!

So since I still have 2 more FREE pasta coupons, I would like to "pay it forward" with a quick giveaway for you guys! Two of you will each get 1 coupon good for 1 free box any flavor of Romano's Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites Dinner Kit.

All of these sound good. I would probably choose the Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne. Garlic is one of my favorite flavors. Thank you for the giveaway.

The Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne sounds yummy


Melissa Swisher said... nice! I've been to their restaurants (love it!) but never had their boxed pasta. Thank you for the contest!

Peter Schott said...

Sounds intriguing. We do have one nearby and their food quality is much better than certain other Italian-style food chains who shall not be named. :)

Thank you for the chance to win this and I'll keep an eye out for it in the local stores.
