This is my husband’s favorite dish. He always requests it, even on holidays! You’ll love the variety of cheeses and spices that jazz it up. It’s restaurant-quality, but at a quarter of the price! —LuAnne Wallace Bennett, Powder Springs, Georgia
“Everyone raves when I serve this. It’s like something you’d find at a fine Italian restaurant, but can quickly cook at home instead. It’s great with salad and bread.” Michele Nadeau - Monroe, Michigan
Stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach, this Italian-style entree is flavorful and filling. I particularly like this meatless dish because I don't have to cook the pasta before assembling. —Mary Steiner of West Bend, Wisconsin
“I created this recipe when I was having company and couldn't decide whether to serve seafood or Italian,” explains Kathy Kysar of Homer, Alaska. “It was a big hit! I usually add a little extra hot sauce to give it that special kick.” TIP: “Try the cream cheese mixture in other types of pasta shells,” advises Kathy.
“I’ve always tried to get my children to eat vegetables,” writes Deanne Schwarting of North English, Iowa. “When my son tried manicotti at a restaurant and liked it, I came up with this version. It was a hit.”
