The Bread Man and I went out for a date night last week, and I knew pretty quickly where I wanted to go. We had gone to Strati in the Highlands on Bardstown Road with some friends once before, but it was so good I ate it all before I could take any pictures for the blog! Oops.
Strati is an Italian restaurant with a made-to-order counter where you can create your own pasta dish with all of their options. They have regular pasta and spaghetti squash, which is amazing since I limit my carbs. They have spicy marinara, regular marinara, and a creamy Alfredo sauce. You can top your pasta with chicken or sausage, and they have lots of fresh herbs and veggies to add in. Whether you want something rich and decadent or you’re watching what you eat, everyone can find something at Strati. It is fast, fresh, and really tasty.
I ordered spaghetti squash with sausage and the spicy marinara, and topped it with onions, chopped tomatoes, artichoke, mushrooms, and basil. The small serving is plenty of food!
The atmosphere and casual and kid-friendly, too, which makes it great for a weekend lunch or a quick weeknight dinner. Being in the Highlands, there are also lots of great dessert options in walking distance if it tickles your fancy.
What quick, healthy meal is your go-to when you eat out?
