Pizza & Flatbread: Wild mushroom & goat cheese flatbread, Margherita pizza
Fresh Pasta: These two options sound really good.
My brother's "Create Your Own Pasta" at Macaroni Grill. Four cheese ravioli, alfredo sauce, roasted garlic, and caramelized onions.
Penne Franco: Mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and black olives, in garlic and oil with ricotta salata cheese
My Pasta Sostanza recently at Carrabba's
Maggiano’s has lots of options geared toward family-style meals. I thought this restaurant had a really nice atmosphere, and very attentive wait staff.
Appetizers: Bruschetta, spinach & artichoke al forno, tomato caprese, mozzarella marinara, crispy zucchini fritte, stuffed mushrooms, crispy onion strings
Spaghetti Marinara: Spaghetti served with MLI’s classic blend of tomatoes, basil, oregano and olive oil
Eggplant Parmesan: Sliced eggplant, breaded and fried, layered with Provolone cheese and marinara sauce. This dish seemed to me like the eggplant was battered and layered like a casserole and baked. I especially appreciated that the pasta was firm, just like I like it.
My Maggiano's Eggplant Parmesan
This is a small serving of my Mushroom Ravioli carryout
My Eggplant Parmesan at Olive Garden. It was outstanding. So far my top pick for Eggplant Parm.
