New Carrabba’s Small Plates for Every Family Moment
I love my in-laws. I am so fortunate to have family that not only live close to us, but love spending time with us too. And when we all get together, you know that it’s going to be a good time. Great memories and side splitting laughter are always surrounded by delicious food. But as the kids get older and our lives get busy, it can be tough to accommodate 13 people’s schedules. We seem to get together less and less, perhaps for a holiday or special occasion. So when I invited my in-laws and brother and sister-in-law for a night at our favorite restaurant, the immediate thought was “What’s the occasion?”
“There’s none. We’re just enjoying a family night together.”
Sometimes we feel like we need something special to happen just to enjoy a moment together as a family. But honestly, why don’t we just get together BECAUSE we are family? We can still enjoy a great night of good company, good laughs and good food, all within our family budget. Check out why the new Carrabba’s Small Plates are perfect for sharing every family moment…and of course, drool worthy pictures.
6 Small Plates for Family Sharing
Our family loves to eat. And not just eat, but eat good food. That’s where Carrabba’s comes in. It’s the place that our family trusts for a delicious meal every time. When the new Carrabba’s Small Plates rolled out, I was already picturing a glass of wine in hand and being surrounded with family as we ate. And that’s exactly what we did. 6 new dishes perfect for sharing, we caught up on our lives the best way we knew how.
YUM! Homemade bread topped in delicious…you can never go wrong. The new Bruschette Siciliani comes with oven–baked ciabatta bread served with diced tomatoes, fresh basil, oregano, red onions and kalamata olives marinated in olive oil and red wine vinegar then topped with ricotta salata. Aka yum served with yum, topped with yum and eaten together with yum.
Grilled Asparagus with Prosciutto
I am a sucker for anything wrapped in prosciutto. So when you wrap wood-grilled asparagus in prosciutto and fontina, drizzled with balsamic glaze…you get your serving of veggies, right?
This was the most surprising Small Plate of the night. Thinking that I was in for the usual mozzarella-type-ball, this little burst of flavors definitely became an instant favorite. Crispy bites of mozzarella and ricotta with Italian herbs and panko breadcrumbs served with marinara sauce, I could have ordered 5 plates of this. Literally.
Meatballs & Ricotta
This was definitely one of my favorite dishes from our last Carrabba’s visit. How could you go wrong with homemade meatballs, right? Simmered in our pomodoro sauce with ricotta and romano cheese, I was a little sad to share this dish 🙂
Three-Cheese & Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms
Hands down this was my favorite bite of the night. Stuffed with sausage, spinach, ricotta, romano, mozzarella and Italian breadcrumbs served over our tomato cream sauce…aka heaven stuffed in a mushroom. I wish I could have 10 of these served over pasta!
Family Friendly Prices
My favorite part about the new Carrabba’s Small Plates? The prices. Every plate is priced perfectly for family budgets. All 6 plates are under $6 each, so your family can celebrate every moment too, even the little ones. Available for lunch and dinner and portioned just right (under 600 calories each!), these plates are perfect for sharing with your loved ones, no matter what the occasion.
Want an even sweeter deal on the new Carrabba’s Small Plates? Then be sure to come in for Tasting Tuesdays! Choose any 3 small plates for just $12. Pair them with Carrabba’s house red or white wine for just $5 a glass (available at dinner only).
Any Family Get-Together Is Worth Celebrating
Life gets busy. Schedules pull everyone every which way. So when our family gets together (whether a holiday or occasion, celebration or just a delicious meal), we celebrate. If for no other reason than to just to enjoy good laughs, good company and good food, our family takes advantage of these moments to be surrounded with love. Carrabba’s Small Plates offers the perfect reason to our family to get together more often. Make sure to check out the new Carrabba’s menu for more delicious new dishes for you and your family. And follow Carrabba’s via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube for the latest delicious plates, exclusive offers and more.
I admit, there are days when we all take advantage of the fact that we have family that live so close. Having these moments to eat, drink and reflect help to root us back in just how blessed we are.

This sounds awesome! I wish we had a Carrabba’s around here 🙂
I love Carrabas but haven’t been in forever. These small plates are a great reason to go visit there again.
This makes me want to go out to eat. I wish our Carrabas was closer so we could enjoy it more often
I love the idea of small plates and sharing meals. This sounds like a wonderful place to enjoy a good meal.

I did not know they had these. So cool to be able to try different things
Jerry Marquardt says
The plates look true Italian. I used to work at Olive Garden, and the plates do not look true Italian, although still very delicious.
Liz Mays says
Oh these would be perfect for us. We went to Carrabbas all the time when we lived in Michigan I’d love to start going again.
Beeb Ashcroft says
These are cute cute cute! I’ve never been there but my husband and I love eating at new places. This looks like a good option!
This is really a great idea, I have heard of this place to go eat before but never been. Wonder if there are any locations near me in NH?

This food all looks so delicious. I would love to give it a try. We like to celebrate with food.
Nicole Escat says
The food looks yummy. This would be perfect for family, after the pig out or family bonding.
Those small plates look like the perfect thing to order for date night. I would love to sample each and every one of them, especially the mushrooms.
We love trying new dishes, so this is a great idea for my husband and myself. I’m drooling over each and every one of them!
Everything looks delicious. I love getting together with our family. And these dishes look like the perfect size to get a bunch and share around the table.
I’ve never been to a Carrabbas before, but these dishes look so amazing. We’ll have to try it for one our family meals out!
