Have you seen the new Pizza Hut advertisements – about the Tuscani Pastas? I wondered what they cost calorically. It’s actually nice that Pizza Hut post their nutritional information. They serve these pastas in trays, and it supposedly servers 4 people. Each ¼ portion for the Chicken Alfredo is 620 calories, 32g fat, 56g carbs, 1300mg sodium. For the Meaty Marinara, it’s 510 calories, 24g fat, 48g carbs, 1310mg sodium. It’s funny b/c the Pasta Bakes Marinara w/ Meatballs, which is NOT served family style, is double the supposed serving size of the Tuscani pasta, and is 1010 calories, 46g fat, 3550mg sodium, 103g carbs… I guess Pizza Hut believes that you will eat less if you get your food family style (the way the Tuscani Pastas are served)? Really?
