January 15, 2019 // Franchising.com // LEXINGTON - It is no secret that Fazoli’s famous Pizza Baked Spaghetti is a show stopper. America’s largest elevated QSR Italian chain is bringing back the fan-favorite and expanding its offerings with new versions of the classic Italian dish, manicotti.
In addition to the fan favorite Pizza Baked Spaghetti, Fazoli’s is offering three new craveable, baked manicotti dishes. Usually marked with a high price tag when dining out, these mouth-watering manicotti dishes won’t break the bank. Plus, they make the perfect meal to enjoy during these cold winter months.
“Our signature baked pasta dishes are one of the things we do best, so we’re excited to try something new with the Italian classic, manicotti,” said Director of Culinary Innovation Rick Petralia. “These delicious, craveable dishes are amazingly priced, plus guests have access to unlimited breadsticks when they dine in, making it an all-around great deal.”

- Pizza-Baked Spaghetti - A fan-favorite making a limited-time return! Spaghetti topped with special sauce, smothered in mozzarella and provolone cheeses and baked with savory pepperoni.
- Pizza-Baked Manicotti - A Fazoli's classic remixed - two hand-rolled manicotti topped with special sauce, then baked with pepperoni, mozzarella and provolone cheeses.
- Chicken Alfredo Manicotti - Two hand-rolled manicotti topped with Alfredo sauce, Parmesan-roasted broccoli and roasted chicken, and then baked with mozzarella and Parmesan-panko breadcrumbs.
