    This was a very good recipe. I will defininatly make again. It was easy but did take a little time stuffing the manicotti but really wasn't as tough as I thought it was going to be. I had never made stuffed manicotti before. I only had one can of clams on hand but still tasted great!

    This has been one of my favorites for years. Recently, I used the leftover cheese filling for pinwheel appetizers. Very good!
