Domino's Launches Line of Bread Bowl Pastas

Fast Food

Would you like fries (or onion rings or chicken tenders) with that?


Carbophobes, stop reading. After a few months of testing the markets in Southern California, Domino's has just rolled out its Bread Bowl Pastas nationwide--"So good," the tagline goes, "you'll devour the bowl."

Unlike Pizza Hut's recently launched Tuscani Pastas, delivered in enormous family-sized tubs, Domino's versions are individually sized: single-meal portions of chicken alfredo, primavera, mac and cheese, Italian sausage marinara, and chicken carbonara pastas, baked into edible bowls.

And if none of these sound good, customers can build their own--starting with a penne base, you can top it with alfredo, three-cheese or marinara sauce, and add up to three meat or veggie toppings.

Prices range from $4.99 to $6.99, and ordering online knocks off a dollar. If all the starch sounds a teeny bit excessive, the pastas can also be ordered naked, sans bread bowl. Here's hoping for no Oven Baked Sandwich-style surprises.
