"Everyone asked for seconds on this dinner. I think next time I'll add chopped spinach to the cheese mixture for a bit more depth in the flavor."

"The entire family enjoyed this Cheesy Manicotti. I prepared it exactly as instructed, using a lower fat version of ricotta and pre-chopped onions and the recipe came together quickly. I also used a piping bag to fill the shells which made it super easy. It really is a delicious comfort food that will be appearing in my menu plan again in the near future!"
