We are excited to share some of our fall favorites and introduce you to new seasonal dishes will bring all of the cozy, familiar flavors of autumn to your table.

The Story Behind the Dish: Chicken & Mushroom Stuffed Shells

Roasted Pear & Gorgonzola Bruschetta
This is a returning fall favorite that uses classic flavor pairings. The Roasted Pear & Gorgonzola Bruschetta has toasted crostinis layered with gorgonzola cheese, roasted pear, imported prosciutto, topped with a balsamic honey glaze and arugula. 

Butternut Squash Ravioli†. Another seasonal favorite returning as an On The House Classic Pasta, the flavor of the Butternut Squash Ravioli is perfect for the season. This dish showcases ravioli stuffed with butternut squash, parmesan cheese, brown sugar and spices. These ravioli are cooked in brown butter and sage to balance the sweetness from the stuffing and topped with sun-dried tomatoes, toasted hazelnuts and grated Grana Padano cheese.

Chicken & Mushroom Stuffed Shells. We like to call this Stuffed Pasta, "Rigatoni 'D' in a Shell." Jumbo shells, baked with Grana Padano Parmesan, spinach, sage, sun-dried tomatoes and Marsala cream sauce.

Stuffed Pasta of the Day. Ask your server about today's Stuffed Pasta. At participating restaurants, choose the pasta of the day, Chicken & Mushroom Stuffed Shells, Butternut Squash Ravioli or any Classic Pasta when you dine in, and select another for tomorrow, compliments of your chef.

Pumpkin Cheesecake†**. It's back! This Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish® dessert is made with a gingersnap crust, cinnamon whipped cream, pecan praline crumbles.

We’re proud to offer Ruffino Salute Amico bottled exclusively for Maggiano’s by the world-renowned Ruffino winery in Italy. You can now enjoy an Italian red or white. Cheers to you!
