Domino's BreadBowl Pasta

We were wondering what to eat for lunch yesterday when we saw this on Domino's website. Looks like they just launched a new product. Looking pretty interesting, so we decided to give it a try.

BreadBowl Pasta...hmmmm. It's supposed to be lightly seasoned bread bowl that baked up around the pasta. It comes in five flavors, Mac N Cheese, Italian Sausage Marinara, Chicken Carbonara, Pasta Primavera and Chicken Alfredo. You can also choose to customize your own BreadBowl Pasta. The price ranges from $5.99 to $7.99. There is a online promotion right now that saves you $1 if you order any of the BreadBowls online.

We decided to order the Domino's BreadBowl Pasta and Pizza ($14.99) special. We can choose any of the BreadBowls and a large 1-topping pizza. We also found a coupon code (code: online) that gives us a free serving of Cinna Stixs with our order.

Here is our large 1-topping pizza. We had the Chicago Deep Dish crust with half bacon and half pepperoni topping. As usual, it's really good.

Our free Cinna Stixs. It comes with a tub of Sweet Icing. Its basically pizza dough baked with cinnamon. Not too bad. Kevin loves it though :D

Alright, now for the main event. We ordered the Chicken Carbonara BreadBowl Pasta. It's penne with white meat chicken, bacon, onions and mushrooms baked with creamy Alfredo sauce and topped with Mozzarella cheese. I am usually not a big fan of pizza chain pastas (Pizza Huts pasta really really suxs) so I wasn't really expecting much. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. It's actually really good. I was expecting a soggy bread bowl but that was not the case. Looks like they used just the right amount of sauce to make the pasta creamy but not enough to make the bread bowl soggy. Very very good. They were also really generous with the chicken and bacon pieces. The size of the bread bowl was pretty big (enough to feed 2-3 people).

Kudos to Dominos for adding this to their menu. It's really really good. Yes, it's super extra fattening and high on carbs, but it's goooood. You can also order the pasta without the bread bowl, but what's the point then? The $14.99 special that we ordered was enough to feed about 5 people, maybe even 6. It was definitely value for money. Looks like we will be trying the other four BreadBowl Pasta flavors real soon!! :P

We tried the chicken Alfredo bread bowl. The bread was soft and the pasta was reasonable, but it was amazingly greasy. That happens with pizza places though :p

Yeah I guess it can get greasy at times. However, the one that we ordered wasn't that bad. I guess Donimos is not that consistant :P
