Noodles & Company Springtime Menu and GIVEAWAY!

Craig and I visited Noodles & Company on Sunday to try out their new Springtime menu. 

Noodles restaurants across the country will use fresh asparagus from California to create these delicious dishes. The asparagus season is short, so these items are on the menu only through early June. Featured items include:
  • Garden Pesto Saute - fresh asparagus in a light lemon Genovese pesto tossed with Noodles' newest gluten-friendly fusilli noodles, red bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, pecans, feta and spinach. The gluten-friendly noodles can be used in other menu items as well.
  • Springtime Flatbread - a crispy flatbread appetizer topped with fresh asparagus, mushrooms, melted parmesan cheese and bacon. It's a great appetizer to share among a group!
  • Asparagus Stack - a side of fresh asparagus spears, feta cheese, bacon crumbles and a wedge of fresh lemon. It's a wonderful way to add more vegetables to any meal. 

I ordered the Garden Pesto Saute with tofu, but I think I'll be back to order the springtime flatbread in the future (probably sans bacon). I like that every order at Noodles is made especially for you, so if I want them to forego adding the bacon to my flatbread, that is possible. 

I had fun snapping photos of my dinner date and I especially liked how this picture turned out because it captures his natural smile.

I was happy to get my lucky number 13 for our table. 

Here is my meal! The only bummer was that they were out of pecans. I really loved this combination. It features a lot of ingredients I love and Noodles always seems to get the tofu just right. Even Craig tried the tofu and liked it.

Craig had spaghetti and meatballs.

I was provided two free coupons for free meals at Noodles & Company, but that did not change/influence my opinion about our experience. I was not compensated in any other way for this post.


  1. I love the new pulled pork mac and cheese. I want to try re-creating it at home.

  2. Just liked your Facebook page.

  3. I always get the mac and cheese. lauren799 [at]

  4. I already follow you on twitter. lauren799 [at]

  5. I really like the Bangkok Curry noodles.

  6. My favorite noodle dish is the pasta fresca, but recently I've also taken a liking to the Med flatbread sandwich!

  7. I haven't been to Noodles & Co and that flatbread sounds delicious!
    Really the only pasta dish I make at home is pasta with homemade pesto and then either chicken or shrimp. (
