Pasta Milano - A Delicious Macaroni Grill Favorite You Can Make at Home

I love to go to Romano's Macaroni Grill. From smell of the open fire grill as I open the front door to the sound of the singing waiters as I set down at my table, I love it all.

Unfortunately for me, on my very first visit I tried the Pasta Milano and fell so deeply in love with it that I have not been able to order anything else. I try. I really do. It all looks so good. From the brick-oven-cooked BBQ Chicken Pizza and the Penne Rustica to the Seafood Linguine, from the Chicken Portobello to the Honey Balsamic Chicken -- I am dying to try it all.

\"bbq Chicken\"

And I have every good intention to do so. I study the menu from top to bottom -- finally picking out Grilled Salmon or Chicken Marsala. I can already taste it.

But as soon as the waiter approaches -- Bam! I point to the Pasta Milano.

Oh well, at least I do always enjoy my dinner.

But recently I found something that should make my next trip a surprise to my friends. Copycat restaurant recipes are appearing all over the web and some of them are very good. One of the first ones I looked for was, of course, Pasta Milano. I found a recipe and started making the dish at home for myself. It is just as good at home as it is at Romano's (though I do miss the singing waiters).

Thanks to this copycat restaurant recipe my next trip to Romano's Macaroni Grill ought to follow a different script. I am now free to look over the wonderful menu and order one of the other dishes I have so often craved. I can hardly wait!

Should I get Chicken & Shrimp Scaloppine or Honey Balsamic Chicken or Sicilian Pizza...or...
