I'm a pasta person. It's the first thing I order no matter which restaurant I'm going to. The Cheesecake Factory is no exception. However, some pastas are better than others. Here's a definitive ranking of the 12 best pastas at the Cheesecake Factory. 

12. Spaghetti and Meatballs

While their spaghetti and meatballs taste homemade and comforting, it isn't incredibly remarkable. If you're in the mood, definitely try it, but their other pastas are much more unique.

11. Shrimp Scampi

This is a must-try dish for shrimp fans. While this dish isn't quite as great as the other pastas on this list, it is still by far the best shrimp scampi I've ever tried, so put it on your to-eat list.

10. Pasta Napoletana

While this dish is delicious and the perfect balance, it's a bit too common to be high on this list of best pastas. If you have kids or are a picky eater, this is the dish for you, as it still tastes wonderful.

9. Cajun Jambalaya Pasta

I love cajun flavors with anything, but dishes with pasta and chicken complement them the best. This dish may not be the best cajun dish out there, but it's certainly up there. It's easily one of the best pastas at The Cheesecake Factory. 

8. Shrimp and Sausage Pasta

While I'm usually not the biggest fan of shrimp, this pasta makes me say otherwise. The combination of the sausage with the shrimp is something that the Cheesecake Factory nails. Why have one protein when you can have two?

7. Evelyn's Favorite Pasta 

Named after Evelyn Overton, whose cheesecakes began the Cheesecake Factory, this pasta brings history to us. Evelyn's pasta consists of rigatoni tossed with broccoli, oven-dried tomato, zucchini, roasted eggplant, peppers, artichoke, kalamata olives, onion, garlic, and pine nuts. As a plus, this pasta can easily be made vegan. Just ask for it with olive order instead of butter, and sans cheese. 

6. Pasta Da Vinci

This pasta is truly a work of art and deserves its name. The star of this dish is the Madeira wine sauce, which is simply unforgettable. The chicken and mushrooms bring the pasta up to a level which is downright legendary.

5. Four Cheese Pasta

There's no such thing as too much cheese, and the Cheesecake Factory proves that with this four cheese pasta. If you're curious, the cheeses included are mozzarella, ricotta, Romano, and Parmesan. 

4. Chicken Bellagio

Basil pasta may be simple, but in this case, it certainly steals the show. The combination with the chicken leaves you wanting more, even with the Cheesecake Factory's huge portions. 

3. Fettuccine Alfredo

While fettuccine Alfredo may be pretty commonplace, it has a flavor that is completely irresistible and is my go-to at any restaurant. The Cheesecake Factory does a fantastic job and has one of my favorites. 

2. Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic is the cherry on top of any kind of pasta. It adds a type of depth you just can't get anywhere else. The Cheesecake Factory really shows they've got this down with their Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic. 

1. Louisiana Chicken Pasta

There's nothing better than some hearty chicken with a heaping serving of pasta, and that's why it's No. 1. Cheesecake Factory fulfills every pasta-related dream you've ever had with their Louisiana Chicken pasta. 

If you're a Cheesecake Factory fan, go out and try every pasta on this list because it is worth it. Otherwise, pick one that looks good, and go with your gut. None of the best pastas at the Cheesecake Factory are going to disappoint.
