Spinach Chicken Manicotti
Total TimePrep: 1 hour Bake: 35 min.
My 14 year old daughter and I made this recipe together, we had a lot of fun. My family ust loved this take on Pasta. I actually ended up rolling the mixture in lasagna, which gave the mixture more pasta to balance out the meat, spinich mixture more. Pine nuts would go nice in the mixture. This is definitely a recipe you can add to, especially in the sauce.
I used all fresh ingredients and half and half and still give this a medium review. Lots of work for me for a luke warm reaction from hubby. Won't make it again.
I added extra garlic, onion powder and some Mrs Dash. I also left out the ham, it was delicious
Going to sub brown mushrooms for the ham and try the ricotta cheese that April suggested when I make this one. This one looks like it will be more than a one-off dinner around here.
A few tweaks I made to help this recipe: use heavy cream, half-n-half, or even whole milk for your sauce if you want more richness. Also, if you add a 1/4 cup cottage or ricotta cheese, it makes a world of difference!
Very blah. Can't believe the rave reviews on this one.
We loved it. Have made it several times
