For my entree I ordered the day’s special: Hazelnut-Arugula Penne Bake and Side Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette. Wow, that’s a mouthful! Seriously, this was SO. EFFING. GOOD. and I am still reminiscing about it. I wish I could get this at a restaurant in Nashville. I mean, I could probably cook something similar from scratch but who wants to go to all that trouble? The pasta was just the right texture. The cheese topping didn’t exactly melt right, but the flavor was great. The pesto was divine. The salad itself was pretty standard (spring mix, broccoli, carrots), and the dressing complimented it nicely.
