Pasta Carbonara – Cheesecake Factory
Spaghettini with smoked bacon, green peas, chicken, and garlic-parmesan cream sauce, $17.95 for dinner size. Love the aroma, but the flavor is not as good as Buca’s creations. Plus there is just wayy too much oil/butter oozing out of this! Gross. Just thought I’d give this a try and compare the two, but Buca di Beppo’s Pasta Carbonara is the true winner.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake
So many chocolate chips – in the cheesecake, as well as in the whipped cream on top of the cheesecake. The cookie dough chunks were too chunky though. The giant wad of whipped cream on top of the cheesecake was also a bit much; seriously, it covers half the surface of the cheesecake! Walnuts are buried in the cheesecake as well, but overall, this cheesecake is not one of my favorites.
