Baked Ziti – 3 Bites

Restaurant: Matt’s Italian
Location: Jacksonville, Fla.
Dish: Baked Ziti

I don’t know how they do it, but Matt’s Italian in Jacksonville, Fla. makes the best baked ziti I’ve ever had. I’ve been going to this restaurant since I was a child, and although I moved quite a few years ago, I stop by whenever I’m in town.

The sauce is tangy and divine. The cheese blend (ricotta? cottage? I don’t even know) holding it all together is out of this world — and perfectly seasoned. The noodles are perfectly cooked, nice and firm but tender at the same time. And the portions are huge! The photo below is only a half portion size; I split this with another member of my party.

The only downside to this dish is that I can’t get enough.
