Ellensburg sits at a major crossroads in Central Washington. When you hit Ellensburg you can go west to Seattle, north over Blewett Pass to Leavenworth or Wenatchee, east to Moses Lake or even on to Spokane, or south to Yakima and everything that direction. Don’t be too hasty though, there is also a lot to do right there in Ellensburg.
We came rolling into Ellensburg for the neight on our way down to the Yakima Valley. In need of a place to eat, I immediately sought out the intelligence of my smartphone.
After much debate, the restaurant we decided on checking out was the Ellensburg Pasta Company. I’m not going to lie, sometimes pasta just seems like the thing I need.
Upon setting foot inside the restaurant, it felt immediately welcoming. I was also pleased to see that this truly was a full service restaurant and there were plenty more options for those who may not be interested in pasta. I thought that was cool, but honestly who am I fooling? I was there for the noodles.
Before the noodles got to the table, I got to sample an order of mozzarella sticks which was awesome. My hopes were raised for my entree after tasting this delightful starter.
Then it showed up, the Chicken & Broccoli Gorgonzola I was waiting for. The cream sauce was perfect and it made the chicken, broccoli, and penne better than I imagined it would be. As I looked around, I liked what I saw on the plates of everyone else at our table too. What I ordered was more than enough for me though, they definitely did not leave me hungry.
Dinner out at the Ellensburg Pasta Company sure was the right decision for us on that road trip. I don’t think it’s possible to go wrong with anything on the menu there.
