"I stuffed the uncooked shells the day before cooking. I reduced the mozzarella as it seemed a bit much. I added some freshly grated nutmeg to the cheese mix. Covered with a garlic marinara & about 2 TB water. Covered with foil & refrigerated. Baked covered the next evening for 50 minutes, uncovered and added maybe 3/4 cup mozzarella. Baked another few minutes till melted."

"This manicotti is the BEST. I have made several other ones before, and this one is a keeper! The only thing I did different was make my own sauce. I thought the cheeses balanced out very nicely. This is going into my rotation. Thank you for sharing."

"1 change that makes it a little easier...don't cook the manicotti. Stuff the uncooked shells, and add 2 tablespoons of water to the bottom and top layers of the sauce. Comes out perfect every time."

"It was too cheesy for my tastes, but if you like a lot of cheese, then you'd probably like this. However, my husband (a huge cheese lover from Wisconsin) also found this got to be too cheesy."

"This recipe is so popular at our home it is requested for Birthday celebrations as their favorite food. I make the spaghetti sauce with hamburger and Italian sausage to give added flavor"
