The Old Spaghetti Factory: Now Serving Gluten Free Dinners

The birthday love just keeps on comin'. Since last week we were recovering from our little stint in the hospital and two of my kids were gone on a trip, we decided to spend Monday night at The Old Spaghetti Factory with my parents for a belated birthday dinner for me, complete with gluten full cake for everyone else from the best bakery in the world which I sorely miss, Dick's Bakery in Bountiful:
But I got spumoni, so it was not a total loss. I chose The Old Spaghetti Factory because I know they serve gluten free pasta, and just about anyone with kids will tell you if the restaurant serves any kind of noodles, you're good to go for picky eaters.
So the dinners came and I ordered the gluten free pasta with marinara sauce and Italian sausage. The sausage was divine, the sauce was tangy and tomato-ey, and the pasta was...DeBoles. Not my favorite brand by far. I love Tinkyada soooooo much that it is difficult for me to even stomach other brands now. The meal wasn't bad, and the pasta wasn't too terrible, it just wasn't my favorite pasta. I noticed that it was printed on their menus that they proudly serve DeBoles, which makes me think that probably all The Old Spaghetti Factories around the U.S. use it. Which is a shame. Where were the Tinkyada reps when all this went down? Get in there and fight for this account! The gluten free eaters of the world are begging you...pitch your product to The Old Spaghetti Factory! Not that I'm a marketing genius or anything, I'm just saying...
Anyway, this is a great dinner option for all of us who live near an Old Spaghetti Factory. They have a full gluten free menu ready to go, you just have to ask for it when you order. Maybe they will get wind of all of us who want Tinkyada pasta and switch over. Now THAT would be a birthday present to remember!
Happy eating out!


  1. I totally agree with you on Tinkyada! When I was first diagnosed I thought it was the end of the world because I'm a pasta girl. I tried everything and it's all gross except for Tinkyada. In fact it's so good the rest of my family prefers it over the real stuff =)

  2. Just found your blog through Viking. Glad you enjoyed the class!

  3. Happy belated Birthday! We've tried the Old Spaghetti Factory here in Oregon. My wife thought the pasta was so-so as well. But hey, it's a night off from cooking so it can't be all bad right?

  4. Ancient Harvest Quinoa Veggie curls are AWESOME

  6. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very
    different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
