  • Review & Giveaway: Romano’s Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites Gift Pack (3 winners)

    You’ve probably heard of the restaurant Romano’s Macaroni Grill, but did you know that you can create some of their best selling dishes right in your own home? Romano’s Macaroni Grill has come out with a Restaurant Favorites line of dinner kits, including Creamy Basil, Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine, Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne, and Chicken Marsala with Linguine. Thanks to MyBlogSpark, I had the chance to try the Creamy Basil, Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, and it was incredibly easy to make. I thought it was overly salty, so I’d rather make my own, low-sodium version. However, if you like the convenience of a pre-packaged dinner kit, then give this line a try – all you need to add is some chicken, butter and milk. And you can get a $1 off printable coupon at the official web site.

    Best of all, three lucky CFO readers will win a Romano’s Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites Gift Pack, which includes a full-size dinner kit, colander, slotted spoon, and cheese grater. To enter this giveaway, simply fill out the form below. (If you’re reading this in a feed aggregator or email, you’ll need to click through to the post to reach the form.)

    For an additional entry, subscribe to CFO via RSS or email and fill out the form again to let me know you’ve done so. You’ll get the latest on CFO delivered right to your favorite feed aggregator or inbox, so you don’t miss any weekly giveaways. (If you’re already a subscriber, just fill out the form to let me know.)

    For a third entry, spread the word about this contesttweet about the giveaway, Stumble this post, or write about it on your own blog. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again.

    You can enter up to three times (one for each type), and you must complete the form once per entry. Only one entry of each type per email address will be counted. I’ll select the winner using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. The winner must respond within 48 hours, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected.

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. PST on Tuesday, May 5.

    Good luck!

    1. I passed these in the grocery store the other day and “almost” picked them up. Now that I know you survived them, I might try them out just to test that too salty theory. It will probably be one of those things my husband absolutely loves and I don’t, but if it means I don’t have to go spend $100 to take my family there(we have 7 kids), then I think I might be able to live with it, or at least make it for them and I can have one of my tried and true that I have just in case I can’t eat what they like.

      So, you say you like to make your own. Any recipes to share? I’m always on the look out for them as I prefer to have a little more control over their intake(salt, etc) than one the box dinners allow.
