Day 14 – Fettuccine with Marinara and Shrimp Fritta
Turns out that for much the same reason that angel hair pasta sucks, fettuccine is actually even better than spaghetti, which I like quite a bit. I feel bad for fettuccine – it’s the Scottie Pippen of the pasta world. It’s always associated with Alfredo sauce, and Alfredo sauce will always get the credit for an entire dish’s tastiness, even though the sauce couldn’t have done it without the fettuccine. Also, fettuccine never quit and tried being bread for two years before realizing it should stick to being pasta.
And since you can never have enough cheese in any salad…
Toss it all in, shake it up.
Add croutons, and boom. Never thought anything could make an OG salad better, but more tomatoes and more cheese does the trick.
Bake (reheat) those breadsticks.
Break out the awesome fettuccine.
Also, somehow I’ve managed to gain essentially zero weight after two weeks of daily trips to the OG, which has convinced me that either 1) they truly have invented a negative-calorie salad dressing and are testing it out on pasta pass people, or 2) I’m clearly not getting enough to eat. So we ordered some Insomnia cookies to go with the pasta. Cookies and pasta. Nothing wrong with that.

Comments from the wife: “We should have just gotten a dozen of the M&M cookies.”
By the way, if you’re in Philadelphia and you order Insomnia cookies without also ordering the ice cream, you’re making a mistake. Insomnia’s ice cream is ridiculous.
