I am such a huge fan of the Chili’s Chocolate Molten Cake, you can bribe me with a plate of this any time! I haven’t got the recipe for this (yet!) but why not give their equally delicious Quesadilla Explosion recipe a go?

Craving a home-style Italian meal? I suggest you book a table at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

Offering a trattoria (or casual dining) setting befitting of a memorable night out with friends and family, Romano’s Macaroni Grill has a line up of rustic Italian favorites including Lobster Ravioli, Cannelloni Bolognese and a very delicious Penne Rustica.

Dine at any of Romano Macaroni Grill’s six branches in the UAE (see their Facebook page for details), or try replicating their Penne Rustica at home.

Penne Rustica is a delicious medley of roasted chicken, shrimp, rosemary cream, prosciutto and parmesan.
