The Olive Garden feast was one of Dwardcooks’ earliest recipes, and, as such, the recipe page needed a lot of cleaning up. Ed used to type his recipes in a GoogleDoc or some other odd program and post them onto his blog whole. This left lots of funky formatting. I decided, for the sake of clarity, and so that you can actually print out the recipes, to break the post up into several posts instead of leaving it all on one sprawling page.
From the original post:
We had a carbs feast tonight. I feel like people think that Weight Watchers or healthy eating means no carbs. To quote Oprah, “I. Love. Bread.” And pasta. And cheese. And potatoes. I love all the things we should do in moderation.
I’ve been seeing a lot of people make the less good two ingredient dough into breadsticks and I was immediately reminded how much I love breadsticks. Especially when they are unlimited and come with soup. Olive Garden’s salad never really did it for me anyway. I was always there for the breadsticks.
Tonight we had an Olive Garden inspired feast complete with Zuppa Toscana, Chicken Alfredo, and of course–breadsticks. I went extra ambitious tonight since tomorrow will probably be turkey burgers or something quick. Tonight’s dinner though, although ambitious, was still relatively easy to make.
Real Olive Garden, by the way is:
55 points for chicken Alfredo
8 points for Zuppa Tuscana
4 points for ONE breadstick
What monster only eats one breadstick?
