We really enjoyed this pasta dish! I had manicotti shells on hand so I used an 8 ounce box. The shells do tear so I would suggest undercooking them a bit. Filled the shells full and the extra cheese mixture I had I spread on top of the stuffed shells than poured the rest of the spaghetti sauce over. Used Prego Chunky Garden tomato, onion, and garlic flavor and ran out of mozzarella cheese so added about a handful of shredded parmesan. Loved the light creamy cheese mixture in the pasta shells! Didnt miss having meat in the sauce and will make this again.
I've made this several times for my family on our "meatless Monday" and they can't get enough. If you use 24 jumbo shells the filling should be exactly enough to stuff them nicely. I use a can of Hunts spaghetti sauce and use 1-3/4 cup in bottom of pan and use the rest over the shells. An excellent recipe I'll be making again and again!
Made these when my vegetarian son & DIL were here for supper & they thoroughly enjoyed these wonderful stuffed shells, as did we! Used some of the homemade meatless pasta sauce that I keep in the freezer mostly for when those 2 are here! Loved the flavor of your dish & will make it again, for sure! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
Love this! I filled an entire 9x13 dish with filled shells and would have done more but ran out of cheese mixture. Everyone thought these were great! I'll be making them again for sure
