What You'll Get
The best way to capture a wild, rampaging meal is to hook it with a gigantic pasta lasso. Test your throwin' arm with today's deal: for $5, you get $15 worth of customizable pasta creations at MacShack, a fast-service pasta restaurant that allows noodle enthusiasts to create their own meals.
MacShack's menu encourages diners to don artistic argyle and explore their creativity. Choose from 15 types of pasta, nine sauces (pasta and sauce together cost $6), six proteins ($1.50 each), and more than 30 veggies ($.50 each.) Whole-wheat and gluten-free pastas are available, as are light sauces, such as garlic and olive oil. If the clucking sound of your hungered stomach distracts you from making your masterpiece, opt for one of Mac's Favs. The Farm House is cream-sauced mixture of bow-tie pasta layered with ham, prosciutto, peas, and egg ($8.75), while the Veggie displays a garden of spring vegetables and rigatoni dressed in a garlic and oil sauce ($6.95).
Founder Marcello Mauro—developer of Nora's family of restaurants—and developing partner J. Dapper are Vegas natives and old high school friends who joined forces to bring personalized pasta into diner's hands. With nearly endless menu possibilities, pasta lovers can use the meal as a platform to search for higher meaning with angel hair pasta wearing flying capers, or maintain double-o status with a classy bow tie to go with that cocktail—sirloined, not stirred.
