GIRLS BITE OUT
In honor of National Noodle Day (today), we're bringing you some noodle
SHOCKERS and lots of AWESOME guilt-free noodle swaps!
Think a little pasta dish here and there can't do any damage? Noodle THIS...
Ruby Tuesday - Chicken & Broccoli Pasta (not including bread or dipping
sauce served on the side) has a completely INSANE 1,713 calories, 95 grams
of fat and 41 POINTS (if you count)! This disaster of a dish consists of pasta
tossed with Parmesan cream sauce, fried chicken breast and marinara
sauce, which is then smothered with Parmesan-Romano and Swiss cheeses
and baked. Um, yikes.
Chilis - Cajun Chicken Pasta isn't exactly diet-friendly. With its cajun-
seasoned chicken, penne pasta, creamy alfredo sauce, and garlic toast, it
racks up 1,500 calories and 78 grams of fat (36 POINTS). Oh, it also
manages to pack in 3,040mg of sodium. That's just scary.
Macaroni Grill - Spaghetti & Meatballs w/Meat Sauce is the most offensive
pasta dish we've ever come across. How a simple dinner of spaghetti and
meatballs can manage to pack in 2,430 calories, 128g of fat, 5,290mg of
sodium and 207g of carbs (58 POINTS) is perplexing to us. Seeing these
stats scared us so much we may never set foot inside a Macaroni Grill again.
