Here's how it works: Come in for meal, choose a $12.95 selection from the chef's favorite pastas and baked specialties (such entrees as baked ziti & sausage, chicken pesto linguine or Mom's lasagne), and you'll get a second entree to take home with you -- free. The deal will run through October 28, dine-in only (at both lunch and dinner).
