Nutritional Information for Carrabba's Italian Grill

I love Carrabba's Italian Grill, but it drives me crazy that they don't publish nutritional information.

Well, that's not exactly true. Carrabba's doesn't publish calories, but they do publish the diabetic exchange values for many of their dishes. Because the exchange values are designed to correspond to specific amounts of calories, fat, carbohydrates and protein, we can calculate the following approximate nutritional information, including Weight Watchers' points, for the following Carrabba's menu items:

Thanks for figuring that out! It frustrates me that they don't post their nutritional information, at least now I have an idea.
Good luck with everything, I'm sure you'll do great! Just keep up the good work.
