Delicious! We loved this exactly as written. I served it with homemade yeast rolls and a spinach salad.

This is a keeper. The cream cheese went great with it. I am only 13 years old though- the manicotti shells were pretty hard to stuff. Next time I might just mix everything together and use penne pasta and put it all in a casserole dish. Other than that, it was great!

I have made this several times and it is fabulous...I added onions, seasonings and instead of the tubular shells I used large shells which are easier to stuff...very good recipe and easy to make.
