Think a little pasta dish here and there can't do any damage?  Noodle THIS...
Ruby Tuesday -  Chicken & Broccoli Pasta (not including bread or dipping sauce served on the side) has a completely INSANE 1,713 calories, 95 grams of fat and 41 POINTS (if you count)! This disaster of a dish consists of pasta tossed with Parmesan cream sauce, fried chicken breast and marinara sauce, which is then smothered with Parmesan-Romano and Swiss cheeses and baked.  Um, yikes.
Chili’s - Cajun Chicken Pasta isn't exactly diet-friendly.  With its cajun-seasoned chicken, penne pasta, creamy alfredo sauce, and garlic toast, it racks up 1,500 calories and 78 grams of fat (36 POINTS). Oh, it also manages to pack in 3,040mg of sodium. That's just scary.
Macaroni Grill - Spaghetti & Meatballs w/Meat Sauce is the most offensive pasta dish we've ever come across. How a simple dinner of spaghetti and meatballs can manage to pack in 2,430 calories, 128g of fat, 5,290mg of sodium and 207g of carbs (58 POINTS) is perplexing to us. Seeing these stats scared us so much we may never set foot inside a Macaroni Grill again.
