To celebrate October being National Pasta Month, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar has unveiled four NEW Neighborhood Pastas! I don’t know about you, but I do not need a special month to celebrate my favorite food all year around!
Celebrating National Pasta Month at Applebee’s with Neighborhood Pastas!
*Thank you to Applebee’s in Manalapan, NJ for hosting our dinner.
We tried the new Chef Bulgarelli’s Stuffed Rigatoni and Tomato Meat Sauce
Delicious Ricotta and Romano cheeses are stuffed into rigatoni (my favorite pasta) and then tossed in a tomato-basil ground beef sauce with bruschetta tomatoes. Topped with Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheeses, Chef Bulgarelli’s Stuffed Rigatoni and Tomato Meat Sauce is then baked until light golden brown and is 100% DELICIOUS!
My husband ordered the NEW Cajun Pasta with Blackened Chicken OR Shrimp. He chose shrimp!
The Penne Pasta is served in a creamy, zesty cajun sauce with roasted poblano peppers, red bell peppers and sautéed mushrooms. It’s topped with your choice of blackened chicken or shrimp!
In addition to these pastas there is also a neighborhood favorite, Classic Broccoli Chicken Alfredo. Juicy grilled chicken that is served warm on a bed of fettuccine pasta tossed with broccoli and a rich Alfredo sauce topped with Parmesan cheese. You can also choose to have this with shrimp.
Finally, give the NEW Creamy Penne Pasta with Sliced Prime Rib a try! Penne pasta and tender, thinly sliced prime rib is tossed in a hearty Parmesan cream mushroom sauce with sun dried tomatoes. Finished with shaved Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of parsley.
Let’s talk about the delicious bread sticks the Neighborhood Pastas are served with! Each Neighborhood Pasta dish comes with an Applebee’s new Signature Breadstick, brushed with real butter, garlic and parsley to create the ultimate sauce-dipping treat.
We love to end our meal at Applebee’s with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae!
I hope you will give these delicious pastas packed with hometown inspired flavors and mouth-watering ingredients at a try! The new menu items are available at Applebee’s locations owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises in New Jersey, Long Island, Florida and Georgia.
