MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 21, 2014

"I want to make this and take for our weekend away. Would it be ok to make Friday and bake on Sunday. The only thing I'm concerned about is the raw chicken sitting with the other ingrediants . I ve made this before and loved it."

"A little time consuming stuffing the manicotti, but not bad considering you get 2 full trays. I put about 4 1" chuncks of chicken per manicotti."
