Pesto Alfredo nestled within a cave, boy! A cave of Gluten Free Rotini

It felt important that I get the most San Francisco thing I could imagine, so I got a meatless, gluten-free dish that cost too much money.

There's something mildly spooky, yet also very 90's, about this pasta, though I can't put my finger on it.

Rigatoni (Italian for "Rigid Tony", named after its rheumatic chef creator, 'Rigid' Tony Palazza) pasta is a fine addition to the Neverending Pasta Bowl.

I don't do a lot of talking about other family-style midrange themed chain restaurants, but the disastrous topping/sauce/base ratios and overall presentation of this dish really screamed "Applebee's Nachos" to me.

This pasta is simultaneously sacred and kind of disgusting.
