MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 2, 2014

"I wasn't to fond of the chunks of broccoli, that and it was had to fill the shells due to the size of the broccoli. Everything else was amazing, I think I'm going to try to replace the broccoli with spinach."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2014

"I've made this several times for family and for guests. It's always a winner. Instead of manicotti, I stuff jumbo shells with the filling. I also use broccoli florets (I've used both frozen and fresh) , cutting the buds up small and leaving out the stems."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 27, 2013

"I did not add the sausage when I made it. This is a great recipe, my family and I loved it."
