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 $10 worth of pasta and more at Pasta Factory, a casual, no-reservations-needed eatery in Latham.
The globetrotting menu at Pasta Factory takes tired taste buds on a worldwide tour of noodle nourishment. Start your journey south of the border with spinach con queso, a warm tortilla-chip jacuzzi of red peppers, onions, and spinach, mixed into melted pepper jack cheese ($4.99), or take the traditional route down the Mediterranean with a gondola full of fresh buffalo mozzarella tossed with olive oil, basil, roasted peppers, and roma tomatoes ($3.99). Tongues can keep wagging in Italy with main dishes such as tortellini alla vodka, which mingles cheese-shaped noodles with prosciutto, diced tomatoes, red onions, and a tangy sauce ($8.69). Diners also can visit a Greek salad, which mixes rotini pasta with Greek dressing, salad fixings, feta, and pepperoncini ($6.29), before returning to the United States for a classic beef stroganoff, featuring sautéed mushrooms, sirloin, and sour cream ($8.19). The restaurant also offers a variety of non-pasta items and a kids' menu, which caters to potentially picky eaters with standbys such as chicken tenders, mac 'n' cheese, and simple buttery noodles ($3.39).
