Out To Eat: Olive Garden - Lasagna Fritta.

I went to Olive Garden after taking a long break from eating there and I noticed they added a few new appetizers and a few new desserts.

The Lasagna Fritta caught my eye.

I'm a sucker for lasagna, and I was under the impression that these would be cute little finger food's that were wrapped in lasagna pasta. But they werent, they were fried. I mean they were super crispy fried. According to the menu:

Parmesan-breaded lasagna pieces, fried and served over alfredo sauce, topped with parmesan cheese and marinara sauce.

I know it says "fried" on the menu, but I dont think I read the description lol.

Anyway, these were pretty decent served hot. They're a little hard to eat because since the lasagna pasta is fried, its harder to cut (or bite) through. They give you a good amount of these and so I took the rest to go. A few hours later, I remember I had my Lasagna Fritta and so I grabbed them for a night snack.

The texture changed completely! It was now what I thought it would be, a nice soft pasta finger food! It was delicious. I personally love these better cold when it gets soggy because then the pasta softens up. MmM. New favorites!
