I know this is totally abnormal for me to
actually have “real food” here…
but this dinner was so awesome I had to share it:-)
What do you think?
Should I share more food things other than sugar?
The Cheesecake Factory is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at.
We used to live about 15 minutes from one and would go all the time.
Now the closest one is about an hour away and not quite as easy to get to.
I used to always get the same sandwich.
It was a fried flatbread with chicken and avocado…so yummy!
But last year on one of our lunch dates,
my hubby and I headed to The Cheesecake Factory
with the intent that both of us would order something totally different.
I read through the menu…
and if you have ever been there,
you realize that the word read is correct.
Their menu is like a book!!! Seriously!
I finally settled on the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta.
It has asparagus in it…this is huge because as a kid I hated this veggie!
I’m thinking I must have hated how it was prepared back then,
because in this pasta it was AWESOME!
Or maybe it was just the spicy kick that hid the asparagus flavor.
Whatever it was…I loved it.
Lately I have been thinking about this yummy pasta
and how I could make it at home since dinner there
isn’t going to happen any time soon.
I googled it and read a few different variations…
but then decided to just wing it and hope for the best!
This recipe is kind of combination of all of them.
And it worked because if I closed my eyes,
I could almost imagine I was sitting at the Factory…
until someone burped.
Then I realized,
Nope just at home with the monsters:-)
