Carrabba's Italian Grill was founded by Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola in Houston, Texas in 1986. The restaurant features hand-prepared family recipes made from the finest ingredients and prepared to order in an exhibition kitchen. The success of Carrabba's led to the popular PBS cooking show Cucina!, starring Carrabba and Mandola, as well as a series of companion cookbooks. There are currently 240 Carrabba's Italian Grill locations around the country.

Offering Italian-inspired cuisine passed down from our founders’ family recipes, Carrabba’s uses only the best ingredients to prepare fresh and handmade dishes cooked to order in a lively exhibition kitchen. Featuring a wood-burning grill inspired by the many tastes of Italy, customers can enjoy signature dishes, including Chicken Bryan, Spiedino di Mare and a fresh twist on an Italian Classic, Wood-grilled Chicken Marsala. Carrabba’s was voted #1 Italian in the 2014 Consumer Picks Survey by Nation’s Restaurant News.



Potato and Onion Soup

Carrabba's Restaurant Recipe

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 pounds yellow onions, peeled and very thinly sliced
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 cups beef stock
2 pounds boiling potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/4 inch cubes
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, melt the butter and oil over medium heat. Cook the onions with salt to taste until they soften and turn light brown. Remove from the heat and set aside.

In a large pot, bring 3 cups of the beef stock to a boil on medium-high heat. Add the diced potatoes and boil until soft. Turn the heat down to low and as the wilted onions, simmering for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. If necessary, thin the soup with the remaining stock.

Ladle the soup into individual serving bowls. Garnish with fresh Parmesan cheese.
