    You guys are great!  We LOVE Maggianos and have never been disappointed.  I made your pumpkin pie cheesecake and it was a huge hit for Thanksgiving.  Many thanks for the recipe!  Would love to get your spinach manicotti recipe, if you have one; that’s always a great favorite in our house.  Thanks for sharing your great recipes!

  • WichitaMom

    We had a wonderful family-style meal about 3 weeks ago (visiting out-of-town family for the holidays)… the tiramisu is what I’m still thinking about. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have that recipe!!

  • Noelle

    Chicken and Spinach Manicotti or Spinace and Artichoke Al Forno

  • Jtkspg

    Thanks for the recipe.  Its good.  Not the same as you guys make but ther’re good none the less.  They were even better with a little trick I learned in the past.  I take a 1/2 T of butter.  Microwave it till its “ALMOST” melted.  Almost is the key as this gets it to the perfect temp needed for what we’re about to put in.  A full clove of “PRESSED” garlic.  The aroma….wow!!!!  We added this to the beef.  You can also toast french bread and dip this right into the butter mixture or pour it on top for some great tasting garlic bread.  Are there any others out there who have made this recipe taste more like Maggianos and if so, whats your trick.  Another trick I know is I get my ground beef from the butcher.  I think next time, I am going to mix the beef with veal and sausage as my meat mixture.  And…. don’t over mix as I believe this will make the meatballs less tender than what you would probably desire.

    I would love to find your Alfredo sauce! We were in St. Louis Christmas weekend and had dinner at this wonderful spot for our celebration! Best Alfredo that I have ever tasted. We do not have a Maggiano’s in Tulsa!
