"The chicken ricotta filling is fabulous! My family absolutely loves this recipe. At times when out of manicotti, have substited flour tortillas with great results. Always double the recipe because quickly eaten! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy recipes that provide great flavor and flexibility for ingredients."
