Fazoli’s has joined the low-calorie fray with a limited-time line of pasta dishes, each with 400 calories or fewer.
The quick-service chain's four “Mini Bakes” are three-cheese baked ravioli; tortellini with bacon; mushroom and chicken Alfredo; and penne Tuscano. Each one is $3.99. They are priced at $3.99 each and will be offered until Feb. 20.
The ravioli is dressed in creamy marinara sauce and topped with provolone and mozzarella cheeses.
The tortellini is stuffed with cheese and served with spicy marinara sauce, bacon, beef crumbles and provolone and mozzarella cheeses.
The mushroom chicken Alfredo is bowtie pasta in Alfredo sauce with grilled chicken, mushrooms, broccoli and provolone and mozzarella cheeses.
The penne Tuscano is whole-wheat pasta in creamy marinara, with grilled chicken, peppers, onions, black olives and provolone, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
The LTO comes in the wake of a wave of lower-calorie offerings from a variety of restaurant chains as customers make New Year's resolutions to lose weight.
Applebee’s recently added two new items to its under-550-calorie menu, Dunkin’ Donuts added two egg white wraps, Bob Evans announced plans to beef up its “Fit from the Farm” menu and Corner Bakery Café extended its “100 under 600” program, which showcases more than 100 combinations for meals under 600 calories.
