Noodles & Company review!

My family and I recently made a trip to Noodles & Company. I was a little worried to tell my husband that we were going out for pasta since he is not the biggest pasta fan. Surprisingly he was excited. He was already a fan of Noodle & Company and has used them to feed offices for his work. I however have not eaten at Noodles & Company for about five years so I was excited to try their new dish and find what is new on their menu.

As hard as it is to get your kids to eat their vegetables such as spinach and asparagus, Noodles & Company does a great job at disguising these with their pastas and excellent flavor. You also have the option to add chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu which of course will give you and your child that much needed protein. As for the adults who are watching their weight Noodles & Company will provide you with nutritional facts so that you can find meals that can fit into your diet. Not only do they provide soups and salads but they even have meals under 400 calories, meals for those watching sodium and carbs listed for you to choose from under their nutrition link on their site.

We ordered the NEW Asparagus & Lemon Linguine dish on top of some other great pasta selections. The Asparagus & Lemon Linguine is packed with flavor. They include basil, feta cheese and fresh squeezed lemon juice. To provide plenty of vegetables and extra nutrition this dish includes asparagus, snap peas, mushrooms and wheat linguine. My husband who loves asparagus loved this dish and my kids loved eating the snap peas.

So on your next family outing, stop by Noodles & Company. There is something for everyone and you can even sneak in those good vegetables and proteins that your children won't eat when cooked alone. Even you spouse who doesn't care much for pasta may even find something they enjoy. Even better, the prices are great and their servings plentiful.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Noodles & Company and received five Noodles & Company bowl cards to facilitate my review. Mom Central also sent me a thank-you gift certificate. I assure you though that these opinions are true opinions and were not influenced by Mom Central or Noodles and Company.
