I had planned to make Shrimp Alfredo (a light version) for dinner last night. But when I arrived home, I found a box on my porch. It was a box of Romano’s Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites, Creamy Basil Parmesan Pasta, complete with a spoon, colander, grater and 3 coupons for free boxes of Romano’s Macaroni Grill Favorites!

Since I was planning to make pasta anyway, I figured this fit right in to my meal plan.

All you need to do is add 1 lb of chicken or your choice of proteins (I used shrimp) 2 T of butter (I actually just used a bit of olive oil) and 3/4 c of milk.

It took less than 20 minutes for the meal to be done. And it was really good! It’s it definitely great for a quick, easy weeknight meal. The box includes linguine pasta, seasoning packet, creamy sauce packet, sun-dried tomatos, and grated Parmesan cheese.

I served it with Pillsbury Garlic Bread sticks.

And now, for the GIVEAWAY!

I am giving away 3 of these great gift baskets (one per person), complete with one box of Romano’s Macaroni Grill Favorites, a colander, a serving spoon, cheese grater and 3 coupons good for a free box of Romano’s Macaroni Grill Favorites.
