I survived Boston Pizza’s Smoky Mountain Spaghetti and Meatballs (1,760 calories, 2,820 mg sodium)

Man, I can’t even remember the last time I’ve been to Boston Pizza. I mean, they make it so easy to finger-cook at home that you don’t even hafta set foot in the store! But hey, they’ve got one down on Front Street that’s just a meatball’s throw away from where the Jays play, and speaking of meatballs…

What do you get when you make a mean spaghetti Bolognese, and then put three massive meatballs on top? You get Smoky Mountain Spaghetti and Meatballs, bro! And yes, ol’ Smoky is covered with cheese—shredded cheddar, son!

OK, let’s break it down. The pasta is cooked perfectly—noodles were still steamy as they hit my mouth. The sauce is a walk on the mild side, but they make up for it with a nicely-seasoned meatball that’s got a bit of a kick. These balls are so big, bro, that I had to cut ‘em in quarters—quarters!—before I shoved em down my piehole. And I’ve scarfed many a meatball in one bite, so that’s saying something!!!

Now, I gotta say, I was pretty full after eating this. The plate is so big, I almost tried to slide headfirst. But then I mighta got beaned at my next at-bat—Marcus Stroman was glaring at me the entire time:

Just in case you were wondering who El Patron of the Jays’ staff is…
